Little Eatery, Glenelg

Beach, Beach, Family Friendly Eats, West

Playground and coffee dates have never (ever ever) looked better.

Like a good cup of Joe with a side serve of fresh air, exercise and epic playground all in one stop?

The kids are going to lose their minds over the good quality simple milkshakes and treats at this place. You are going to love the ample parking, the entertainment factor (um hello exceptionally good playground adjacent at Wigley Reserve), the room to run around, toilets on precinct and the proximity just a stones throw to watch boats come and go from the marina lock! Throw in a really lovely hospitality family who run the show here (and also up the road at the bigger West Beach Eatery) and you have an entire low cost half day outing sorted.

Its also the perfect Glenelg meeting point, minus the hustle and bustle of Jetty Road, but close enough if you also want to throw that in the mix!

We have continued to call past this top spot over the last couple of years for the consistently good coffee and banter.

The kiosk opened in late November 2020 by the talented family also behind local venues West Beach Patisserie & Eatery Fair to say these guys sure seem to know a thing or two about quality hospitality offerings.

What will you find here? Currently grinding and brewing beans from local roaster Presstwood Coffee. We’re here for it, it is very good. Some traditional milkshakes and cool drinks and a nice little selection of sweet and savory items like toasted sambos and croissants, along with cakes, muffins make up the small but adequate food selection.

There is no shortage of seating however young kids may even prefer if you throw in a picnic blanket.

  • Find it at: Wigley Reserve, Genelg The incredible upgrade at Wigley Reserve at Glenelg is an outstanding attraction for an already pretty awesome area. Sometimes fantastic photos do a far better job at telling a story and this is absolutely one of those occasions. Check out how good it looks! The old playground is long gone and has been replaced with this impressive looking structure that really does catch the eye as you approach Wigley Reserve. It is important to note that the playground is now only partially fenced (locals would remember the old shaded plastic playground was fully fenced) on the Pat river side only. It is fully open on the grassed reserve side so you will need to keep your wits about you here as the water is pretty close. The old 'plastic fantastic' playground has been replaced with a sensational multi function playspace which will satisfy the climbers, the nature lovers, the jumpers, the exercising types and those who love a good swing. The highlight has to be the huge climbing structure which lets kids of all ages (thanks to really well designed safety netting) climb up nice and high and check out the incredible view of…

  • Find it at: Mosley Square Glenelg The Glenelg Foreshore Playground is SO good and we have absolutely loved visiting (along with most of Adelaide!) over the past few years since it opened. With the recent seasonal addition of the Giant Wheel, from about October to April, it makes for a brilliant day out! It's a great mixture of beach surrounds, fun for young and old kids, and the move towards 'nature play' areas. Highlights include: water play area into the sand, huge metal slide, in-ground mini trampolines, climbing frames, water fountains, grassed areas and nearby cafes!Pro Tip - bring a change of clothes for when the kids inevitably get wet! One of our favourite central features of the Glenelg Foreshore Playground is the mega metal slide you can see below. At about 4m wide, this slide can fit the whole family. There is a rather steep, fake grass ramp up to the top of the slide which I didn't love at first, but it is possibly a good idea as it might keep kids under 2 from making their way up there, or at least it slows them down. As it turns out, once you're up there you can see…

  • At a quick glance, you might think that West Beach Patisserie & Eatery is only for guests staying at the Big4 in West Beach Parks, but we are here to tell you that it is OPEN to the public, 7 days a week and your family are going to love some of the best coffee, food and hospitality going around! Legitimately, every thing this talented family touch in the hospitality space, turns to gold. Trust us, we have been following these legends around for a good few years now. You are going to feel like you are a resort guest far far away (minus the exorbitant resort prices) as you sit amongst the potted palms, greenery and white umbrellas, sipping a brunch champagne and devouring your eggs benedict. The car park and venue entrance are very simply accessed from Military Road - no need to actually enter the park at all! The small on site playground will keep young kids occupied while they wait for their food, and when it does come, sitting out doors is just the best this time of year and with kids in tow. Something about more space around you and less venue noise plus the…
