We have plenty of friends with bairns in tow who are constantly looking for kid-friendly places. Joints that have safe corners to keep their little ones occupied while they catch up with friends and pint-sized menus to choose from. Check out these places.
More places to enjoy with your kids!
The weekend is here and you're looking for a great place for food that is appropriate for your little one. We decided to expand on our initial list of kid friendly joints and bring you another five that we think are great for kids. These places serve both yummy delights and have activities fit for the little one. Best of all is that there's plenty here for adults to sup and sip too.
Kids can have fun with the toys at this little spot in Antipodean
This Aussie-style cafe serves up a bevy of delicious food. Their specialty is coffee so do make it over here for breakfast and a hot steaming latte. There's a little kids play area that has books, toys, games and even a television that will keep your precious one busy as you kick back and enjoy the morning. Do try their salads or the Kiwi lamb burger for something delectable. The desserts are best enjoyed with their blends that are from Sumatra, Java, Sulawesi, and Bali. This is the perfect family weekend spot.

The Bee, Publika
Curl up on the sofa with your lil' ones
While there may not be a designated kids play area, The Bee is a great spot for the whole family to dine. The funky decor and wide open spaces makes it easy to let your little one roam free as you keep an eye on them. The cosy couches are perfect for curling up with a book for the little one as you indulge in some of the sumptuous offerings. We especially love that they serve ice-cream from The Last Polka and even make milkshakes(alcoholic and non-alcoholic) out of them. Slurp up a boozy milkshake as your little one has a regular one. The ultimate indulgence! The burgers here are delicious too, especially the Mexican burger which is served up with jalapenos and chili con carne.

Out of Africa, PJ
Kids love the safari feel of the place
Treat your little tyke to a braai, an African style barbecue at this unique spot. Your children will love the safari feel of the place complete with a mini jungle playground where they can run around to their hearts content. The outdoor terrace is a lovely spot to chill out as you chomp down on the delicious food. Try the ostrich steak fillets, peri-peri chicken livers, or African oxtail stew for something different. Out of Africa also has a kids menu that has specialties like pasta, lamb chops, hamburgers, mini sirloin steaks, fish and chips and Boerwors sausages.
