Parents of young children are all too familiar with the feeling of getting to their holiday destination and needing to quickly find their bearings.
Specifically speaking – locating a good coffee shop and a playground. First world problems perhaps, but the struggle is real for sleep deprived parents with little ones who are up with the sun, chasing their caffeine fix and a place to let the kids run wild. Sounds simple? Well, the coffee shop/playground combo is actually a bit of a rare diamond. The café needs to have good coffee, access for prams, a play area onsite or nearby, babyccinos are a bonus, and a view wouldn’t be bad either! These are not dime-a-dozen cafés and finding the perfect spot can require some serious searching.
Luckily, the Margaret River Region’s café scene has evolved considerably in the last few years, and with kids in mind, there are several great options for mums and dads. We’ve put together a list of our finest cafés with a playground.
