Hide & Seek Cafe Leichhardt – Sydney Family Friendly Cafe
Posted on June 25th, 2017
What is it that makes a cafe, kid friendly?
Often as parents we’re happy when there are clean high chairs and a kid’s menu. Sometimes, there may be a bucket of toys in the corner that, if we’re lucky, will keep our little ones entertained for two minutes. But if you happen to be in Sydney, then you should check out Hide & Seek Cafe in Leichhardt to experience a whole cafe dedicated to families and people dining with small children.
Hide & Seek Cafe have a lot more for families who are eating out with children, than you have probably come to expect as the norm. In fact, they have actually set out to cater for families and children! While they have the essentials such as plenty of high chairs, books and toys, Hide & Seek Cafe also boasts a large outdoor undercover play areas with a cubby house and sand pit, focusing on discovery and imaginative play!
Family Friendly Cafe by a Family for Families
Cafe owner and manager Brendan was driven by his own family experiences to create Hide & Seek Cafe, “a family-friendly cafe, created by a family for families!“. He told us that he was “inspired by my own two year old daughter to create the place that we were always looking for“. They also regularly host creative activities for kids, including move and groove and jellybean painting. But they also cater for the even littler ones, with an inside area for babies and mothers groups.
It’s also about good food!
But it’s not just all about the kids! Brendan said that “we wanted to make sure we didn’t compromise on was the quality of the food and coffee and I’m confident in saying that we are just as good as most other cafes in the area and you actually get to finish your cup of coffee! We use Five Senses Coffee and our menu includes dishes like the Nutella Ball French Toast and Quinoa Sago Porridge.”
But Hide & Seek wouldn’t be a Kid Friendly Cafe, if they didn’t also offer some lip-smacking meals for the little ones. We were impressed to hear about their good old Vegemite Toast for $2! As well as some more trendy offerings such as Blueberry and Coconut Chia Pudding (Gluten Free) and a Bento Box which can be served vegetarian. Of course, Babycinos too!
Hide & Seek Cafe was born out of one family’s desire to create a truly Kid Friendly Cafe experience for other families and their little ones. If you’re in Sydney why not check them out and let us know what you think! See below to go into a special draw for Hide and Seek Cafe!
