Want an exceptional quality, cute as, *hidden* café on the city fringe, with a secluded river path to explore? Think large alfresco pavilion, shady garden with games strewn, and and irresistible brand new kids menu. Where well behaved dogs are welcome and there are zero cars whizzing past? Throw in coffee so good you will have at least two, and a setting so pretty you know there is a snap going direct to the gram? Bloom Café at 38 Winwood Street in Thebarton feels a little bit magical and ticks a lot of boxes for eating out with kids in tow! We loved it.

Offering up a cracking all day breakfast and lunch menu 7am – 4pm weekdays and 8am-4pm weekends, every one in the family is going to be happy and well catered here. You are going to want to settle in honestly. One stand out for us was the cast iron baked pancake, with roasted Myponga peach, house made vanilla ice cream, orange syrup and crushed roasted macadamia nuts.

Bookings are recommended, and you can do that in a few clicks on their website here, however it’s a big venue and walk ins can usually be accommodated outdoors.

The premises it self is a beautifully redesigned, century old, horse tram barn. It’s full of comfy nooks and corners, with the choice of indoor seating, or our pick with kids, outdoors under the alfresco pavilion roof. There is also a garden area with lush natural shade or simply choose to take away a coffee and pastry and explore the lush meandering river path! If you live in the west you could even ride here along linear park.

The food here is cooked with passion over hot coals and the presentation and care taken to ensure everything looks absolutely perfect is commendable . Locally sourced, seasonal menu’s that are just delicious really!

This would be a perfect spot for a family celebration and we can not get over how far removed we felt from the city, sitting in this little oasis. The kids absolutely loved it, and when they are happy and entertained, you know the deal, we are happy too!

Worth a mention, if it’s something special with out the kids that you are looking for? You can ‘make it boozy’ by adding a bottomless drinks package of beer, wine, champagne and cocktail jugs to any booking. Gather the gals!

In signing off, here’s a little statement from the talented owners……

“We welcome prams, pups, big birthday get-togethers and any one who loves good food and good vibes” – and this is exactly how we felt.

  • Ahh McLaren Vale - you are breathtaking! Surrounded by rolling hills dotted with vineyards (lots and lots of vineyards) it’s no wonder wine tasting tops the list on most McLaren Vale itineraries. But with kids in tow, is it possible? It’s not just possible—pick the right one and it can be fun for everyone, we promise!  Here at Kids in Adelaide, we are dedicated to showcasing family-friendly wineries that are small enough to give us that personalised attention and of course, great tasting experiences, beautiful vineyard settings, and friendly hospitality. Woodstock, a beautiful family owned estate in McLaren Vale ticks all those boxes, plus more. The wines are great, yes, but this place goes beyond the normal cellar door to include some child-friendly surprises as well. As soon as we had arrived, we knew we had stumbled across something special. The kids could hardly contain their excitement as the playground was the first thing they saw and they immediately set off to play. The old-fashioned two-person swing was a favourite with our four and five year old. The grounds though, are spectacular. Woodstock unfolds across an expansive grassed area, an intimate tasting room, an inviting and central restaurant, and dozens…

  • Find it at: Port Rd, Adelaide What a beautiful playground for kids of all ages! Renovated back in late 2012, the Bonython Park Playground has a some very cool features not found in the typical suburban park. Some of the best equipment includes two 25m flying fox lines fun for kids of all ages and an extensive water play area complete with pumps, gates and a watermill. Kids love playing and experimenting with water and this is a safe and interactive water zone to suits kids as young as 1, while still entertaining the older ones. The huge 'mouse wheel' can accommodate numerous energetic kids, there is a variety of swings and we love the wheelchair accessible carousel, water play troughs, communication boards and a nest swing that make this park a good one for kids of all ages and abilities. You also have to love the shade thrown by beautiful big old gum trees in this park. The playground backs onto a well kept oval for plenty of open space and a kit of the ball or fly of the kite and there are both toilet and BBQ facilities here. Perhaps the star of the show (for parents) is Cafe Bonython, located directly…
