    Oh, Melbourne. What’s not to love? When it comes to waterfront views and to cultural festivals, very few cities can top Melbourne. And we haven’t even started on the food!

    We’re assuming you’re reading this list because you’re looking for a great restaurant for you and for your family. 

    There is no such thing as a perfect restaurant. However, you do have with on your screen a list of the top kid-friendly restaurants in the city. Let’s get started!


    A treat for all lovers of Asian fusion food, this family restaurant along Aviation Road promises to be a treat for kids. The place was established by the food-loving Chews, and they dedicated this restaurant to their own ‘cheeky’ kids! Being kid lovers themselves, the owners set up a cool little play area for kids to play in.

    District North is a diner that just so happens to be popular and have the ‘right stuff’: they are considered as ‘highly recommended’ by publications such as the Melbourne Breakfast Diary and the Broadsheet.

    Jiji’s Place prides itself on offering families a warm and cozy home to stay and relax in. They serve a full menu for breakfast and lunch, but with a Mediterranean twist. Mums will be happy to know that there is a rear courtyard for their little ones to play and run around.

    We have a sort of weakness for small but comforting local cafes, and Little Sister Cafe fits the bill. A no-frills specialty coffee shop, families would be happy to find a large, outdoor dining area for their gatherings. You can expect a lot of sweet treats and warm service, plus a very varied breakfast menu.
