A weekend away with the little ones is better enjoyed when everyone is having equal amounts of fun. Kids are picky eaters and get bored very easily and very fast, which is why the choice of restaurant is usually a big one for most families.
Luckily, there are quite a few great family-friendly restaurants in Perth. Here are 7 family-friendly restaurants you must go to when you visit the capital of Western Australia.
If you’re looking to experience ‘real’ food the way it’s supposed to be experienced, Eastside Social is the place for you. Promising to take customers on a culinary journey before everything became so processed and digitalised, this restaurant combines the best of old and new.
The bright colours will lift your spirits, while the nutrition-packed superfoods served will fill you with energy for the busy day ahead. Get real with an extensive collection of fresh salads and energetic superfoods, delightful small bites, classic pasta and delicious pizzas. Other favourites include the restaurant’s fresh take on fish and chips and the extravagant cheeseburger with ground Angus beef patty, cheddar and provolone cheese.
There’s something for the whole family to enjoy here. Eastside Social can be found onsite at ibis Styles East Perth, a vibrant hotel situated in the best part of town. Did we mention that kids enjoy free breakfast when they stay in one of our fully-equipped 252 rooms? Now, that sounds like a load of fun!
Hampton & Maley is a lovely everyday cafe that welcomes families, dogs and cyclists. With a large open dining room, accessible parking and a dog-friendly outdoor terrace, it comes as no surprise that this cafe is a cut above the rest.
Most of the food here is fresh and made from scratch, but what really stands out as unique is the fantastic ‘kiddie’s’ menu, as they call it. It’s not just chicken nuggets and pizza. The kid’s menu includes all the delicacies found in the main menu, albeit reduced in size—and price. Favourites include the cheese on-house-baked sourdough, the pasta in sugo and the three-egg omelette.
Kids can run wild on the paved forecourt or spend some time in the kid’s corner, complete with a cute cubby and a stocked play kitchen. Hampton & Maley is undoubtedly a powerhouse when it comes to all-day family brunches in Perth.
Sprolo is a specialty cafe with a deep focus on caffeinated beverages. That being said, its Asian-inspired brunch menu is to die for, and so is the cute children’s menu that includes favourites such as the babycino and the three-cheese toastie with Greek yoghurt and poached fruit.
There’s also a dedicated play area where children can run free to their heart’s content, which is always a plus when travelling with the young ones.
If there’s one thing that children and adults would agree on, it’s that any time is a good time to enjoy a delicious pizza. The wood-fired specimens at Monsterella are bound to leave both young and old in a state of awe.
All the pizzas here are handmade and naturally risen for up to 48 hours. There’s enough for everyone to share, but deciding on the toppings may prove quite the challenge. Allowing the kids to pick their own bambini pizza may not be such a bad idea after all. At Monsterella, you’ll also find traditional Italian street food, homemade Italian pasta & Insalata.
There’s almost as much power in fish and chips as there’s in pizza. Mount Hawthorn Fish and Chips is a testament to that. This long-running fish and chipper is always filled with families, so they must be doing something right.
Mount Hawthorn is open 7 days a week for both lunch and dinner, offering a wide range of unique family packs and options. Treat the whole family to delicious fish and chips, dim sims and pineapple fritters for under $40.
The children’s play area is always filled with youthful energy; families and older children tend to crowd the ping-pong tables.
This fun and quirky restaurant on Albany Highway is where locals meet for DIY sodas and delicious brunch options. The chic interior is complete with a teaspoon collection, an old gramophone and old kitchen beaters on the counter.
Dishes here are prepared with love and creativity. All-day eats served until 2 pm include the delicious sourdough toast and ‘Very Berry Chia Bowl’, as well as the ‘Bird of Tokyo’ signature southern fried chicken and the ‘Chorizo Patatas Bravas Hash’. Larder eats include pork sausage rolls, a selection of homemade pies, and much, much more.
There’s available parking and the large open space area outside is free for all (including children and dogs)!
Jamie’s Italian is the go-to restaurant for plenty of families here in Perth. You know when you walk into a fancy restaurant, and you get the ‘oh no, kids’ treatment? The staff here are always friendly, ensuring your special night out doesn’t feel like an imposition.
The well-designed kid’s menu includes favourites, such as the five-a-day picnic box that comes with a delicious free-range chicken wrap and rainbow vegetable crisps, the happy chicken lollipops, the mini beef burgers and the fantastic fish stew.
Adding to the whole experience, children can get a better look at each of the items on the menu using the provided viewfinders. A meal at Jamie’s Italian is bound to leave the whole family full and satisfied!
