ellaslist Reviews The Very Kid-Friendly Little Rock Cafe
By: Lenore Pearson, ellaslist explorer
Pulled Pork Burger, Iced Caramel, Fanta Spiders and BabyCinos are just a selection of the delectable choices available at the Little Rock Café.
With a comprehensive and versatile menu, this moderately priced, family friendly café is located in our local shopping mall in Baulkham Hills. It is a popular choice among locals especially my family. It never disappoints, and the kids always enjoy visiting Little Rock for a special lunch treat.
What Makes It Kid Friendly?
Little Rock Café offer a separate kids menu with substantial choice for both breakfast and lunch. They have an outdoor covered play area that is gated and suitable for under 5 year olds and there are a range of children’s books available to read at the table while waiting for a meal. The Play area (My Funland) was recently relaunched as a partnership with Touched By Olivia Foundation to create an all-inclusive playspace for all abilities.

Why Would Your Kids Love To Go Back?
To try the different flavoured ‘Spiders’. My eldest loved the Fanta spider!
Service is prompt and attentive…who has a patient child when it comes to food?? My kids were impressed with how quickly they were served and the play area was a hit with my younger two.
Bring something extra to entertain older kids, younger kids love the play area but my 9 year old took one look at it and decided it wasn’t for him.
Make sure you grab an outdoor table with the view of the play area.

ABOUT LENORE PEARSON
Hello! My name is Lenore, proud mumma to three gorgeous kids, amazingly awesome wife to one cool dude and self-professed travel addict! I started out my career as a primary school teacher for five years, which, second to having my own kids, was extremely rewarding for me.
While I was pregnant with baby number 3, and slowly going insane pacing (waddling) up and down the house, I felt I needed to keep my mind active and decided to take up a Diploma in Travel and Tourism, because I clearly wasn’t going to have my hands full enough with three kids!
I am all about exploring. For me, living a full life is about collecting amazing experiences from as many incredible places as possible. Travel and adventures fuel my imagination and I love sharing them in the hopes of inspiring the explorer in each of us! Along with my family, I have been fortunate enough to have discovered lots of places already.
I am super excited to be an ellaslist Explorer, aiming to provide very real and practical information for families looking to create their own adventures and experiences. I am forever researching new and exciting things to do with the kids and I look forward to sharing them with you.
I have also just launched my own travel blog ‘Little Miss Piggy’ a treasure trove of travel inspiration and unique experiences in and around Sydney and abroad.
