child friendly cafe’s/restuarants

I love eating out and I especially love finding new places to eat. This became very challenging for me when I became a mom because not all the places that we loved to go to were very child friendly especially when you have to change baby’s diaper and the toilets are just that a cubicle with toilet and a sink 😦

Considering my new mommy status, I started looking for child friendly places because it enabled us to be more relaxed and enjoy our eating out experience. I have found a few in Durban that I really liked, enjoy mommies. If you want more information, you can check out the websites for these places.

Pallet Jacks – Hillcrest

This place reminded me of Spur but a way bigger and more fun Spur. It is the perfect place for play dates as well as parties. It caters for children between the ages of 2 – 15 years. They have a separate play area for the 2 – 5 year olds and a separate play area for the older children and they have supervisors in each of the play areas that watch the children whilst they are playing. They also have a little merry go round for the little ones which is supervised by one of their staff members. Their menu is very child and adult friendly. They have change rooms and a breast feeding area. All the play areas and majority of the restaurant is indoors so even if the weather isn’t great, you can still have a good time.

Sage – Umhlali, Salt Rock

Sage is a café with a beautiful little play area for the little ones. They also have small décor shops and a toy shop on the premises. The eating area is right next to the play area so you can keep a close eye on your children whilst they are playing. They also have a trampoline and a birthday party area. Everything is outdoors so it’s not ideal for a rainy day but on sunny days it’s the perfect relaxed environment.
