Hello brand new Adelaide café that your kids are going to LOVE every bit as much as you will! With a delicious French inspired menu, think next level toasties like the OG Croque: Leg Ham, Swiss Cheese, Parmesan Cheese and Home Made Béchamel, toasted on sourdough. Plus some of the best coffee we have had in a while AND a beautiful adjoining fenced out door playground – we are SOLD.

So, we’ve shamelessly stalked owners Amy and Eric for a while, having fallen in love with their ‘Croque’s’ (French toasted sandwiches) a year or so ago when they only had their cute coffee van. When we saw this new bricks and mortar venue pop up AND it had a brand spanking new outdoor playground? We were on it, and so pleased to finally get out there so as we can show you! PS they still have their van and you should totally book it for your next school sports day, childcare picnic, or even an adults celebration with booze.

The menu is superb with so much on offer beyond those world class toasted sandwiches, including a breakfast selection, a pasta selection, specialty pulled pork options and a very cute kids menu. Star of the kids menu? Glad you asked….for us it was the Kids French Toast served with Blueberry Compote, Maple Syrup and a ball of Ice Cream. There’s also a great range of fresh daily cabinet treats for grab and go with a coffee, along with a daily specials board. Yum. I mean home made beef ragout with parmesan in a toasty? Life doesn’t get much better!

There is ample car parking out the back (enter from Gate 3 off of Daws Road) which makes it super easy to load/unload little people safely and to manoeuvre a pram. Of course there are highchairs available and we always love a choice between indoor and outdoor seating. (Worth noting, indoors has a little play corner with some colouring and a floor mat too – so don’t be put off if its a hot day or a wet day.)

Every one is going to love the brand-new playground. It’s just steps from the outdoor tables and it’s fully fenced and has that really lovely soft rubber surface that’s actually easy for toddlers to walk around on. With a cute cubby, plenty of colour and ample climbing and hanging opportunities, they will work up an appetite in no time, and you’ll actually enjoy a hot coffee!

Last thing we need to say – the café has a fabulous big private dining room with its own external door directly into the playground. We need playgroups and Mums groups etc in the area to know about it, because it would make a magnificent hang for that type of thing. It’s big and spacious, I mean even a morning tea birthday party would be 10/10 in this space and I’m sure would comfortably seat twenty people.

So when can you go? What the Croque! is currently open Monday to Friday 8am to 2.30pm and Saturday’s 9am to 2pm PLUS don’t forget to check their socials and find out where Adelaide’s OG caravan is at!

  • Of all of the wineries we have visited this year? Kimbolton has had the most on offer for kids and families, and we just love this place to bits. From the shady lawn games and kids welcome baskets, to the massive hand they played in the regions 'Grapes for Good' initiative, come take a look at our recent visit. Less than an hour away from the Adelaide CBD lies the Langhorne Creek wine region. Where is Langhorne Creek? Glad you asked. Just a little past Strathalbyn and you will find this fantastic area filled with some breathtaking, often quieter spots to explore. You'd be forgiven for thiking this is Adelaide Hills, it actually falls into Fleurieu Peninsula, but is located between Adelaide Hills and Lake Alexandrina. Built in December 2018, directly on top of the vineyard, Kimbolton is a fun yet sophisticated venue made from shipping containers! Giving you the feel of being right amongst the vines, with a terrific deck up top and opening windows where you can sit and eat cheese and drink wine until your heart is content (or your belly is full….either or). There are two seperate grassed, shady, areas at the cellar door with a…
