Six of the Best Kid Friendly Cafes in the Macarthur Region
Children and sitting still at a cafe are two things which should not appear in the same sentence!
We are always on the hunt for kid-friendly places to eat so that we can relive our child-free day, but who are we kidding! Eating out will never be the same again! These family-friendly places in Sydney's Macarthur however do make eating out that little bit more pleasurable.
The Macarthur region is often forgotten but is only an hours drive out of the hustle and bustle of city life, where you are met with serenity and lots of family-friendly spots. It has so much to offer so come out here and experience it all.
Here are our six of the best cafes and restaurants across the Macarthur region:
Cake Biz Express - Narellan
A cafe inside an old restored train carriage? Yes! You read right. This wonderful, kid-friendly cafe is located at Cake Biz and their restored vintage train carriage is a unique novelty for kids and train enthusiasts. Go inside Cake Biz and select from the delicious range of cakes, slices, pies, sausages rolls and coffee, then head on over to the Cafe Biz Express located at the back of the cafe. Pick a booth for your family to sit in and enjoy that quality family time and make memories.
Rest assured that this cafe is pram accessible with a ramp located on one side, but be aware that once inside the train it is pretty cosy and there isn’t much room to move around. Public toilets are available onsite.
Where: 267 Camden Valley Way, Narellan
HOT TIP: They also offer a drive-thru section! If you’re in need of a coffee but your kids have other ideas, wind down the window and grab a takeaway.
Wild Dragonfly Cafe - Mt Annan
A hidden gem within Flower Power Garden Centre, Wild Dragonfly Cafe offers a tranquil setting, set amongst the roses, and a dedicated kid's menu that is affordable and delicious. They also post about children's activities they are hosting on Facebook.
One of the biggest drawcards is the outside playground. It’s not fenced off, but there are tables right along the side of it so you can watch the kids and enjoy breakfast or lunch in complete harmony.
Where: 320 Narellan Rd, Mount Annan
HOT TIP: Sit outside so the kids can run around on the play equipment and you can enjoy a hot cuppa.
The Argyle Gourmet - Camden
The Argyle is a sweets mecca! They have a large variety of ice creams, but it's their range of lollies that will really blow you away - candy as far as the eye can see. Parents can grab a coffee and sweet treat and relax (if ice cream and lollies aren't your thing) while the kids enjoy a sugar hit.
Where: 55 Argyle Street, Camden
HOT TIP: Ask about their great birthday party packages - they literally do everything for the party!
Back Galley Cafe - Camden
The Babycino here are worth the visit alone! The delightful Back Galley Cafe offers one of the best brekkies in town available all day, and the staff are so lovely and accommodating. There is something here for everyone with passionate foodies whipping up gourmet delights. It is a great spot for an after-school treat!
Where: 108 Argyle Street, Camden
HOT TIP: Try the French toast (OMG - to die for)
Camden Valley Inn - Camden South
A great old fashioned pub with a fresh new look, Camden Valley Inn is a local favourite! Only an hours drive South-West of Sydney nestled amongst the razorback mountains, this quaint little pub is the place you can bring your kids to and still have a relaxing meal. There is plenty of space outside for the kids to run around, plus a playground and children’s menu.
Where: 290 Remembrance Drive, Cawdor
HOT TIP: Book a table in advance. This popular little pub gets booked out fast!!
Juicy Goose - Narellan
Located within Ultimate Karting Raceway (however, it does have its own entrance) Juicy Goose is proving to be a firm favourite with the locals. This cafe is has a children’s breakfast and lunch menu and a special little spot for kids to colour in while mum and dad enjoy their meal.
Adults are also well taken care of here with an extensive menu and alcoholic beverages including beer on tap.
Where: 40 Anderson Road, Smeaton Grange
HOT TIP: After your meal, duck next door to Ultimate Karting raceway and challenge your family and friends to a race.
