Child Friendly Cafes

Cornwall Park Garden Restaurant

Cornwall Park Garden Restaurant

Set in the grounds of stunning Cornwall Park, this is ideal for a quick coffee or ice-cream and a good place for parents to meet as the kids can have a great run around before or after! The children’s meal options are a combo of breakfast and lunch; they can choose from a healthy platter (fruit, crisps, bread, cheese and ham), crispy chicken pieces with fries and salad, or poached eggs with bacon, all for only $8 each. Ice-cream sundaes, juices or soft drinks are also available. There's a couple of highchairs, room to change babies, crayons and drawing sheets to keep the kids happy.
