I am always on the hunt for kid friendly cafes in Melbourne and Nature Boy in Murrumbeena is one of the best I have come across.
You wander through the tiny front café and head out the back to discover an incredible courtyard space for kids complete with a cubby house, play kitchen and outdoor toys. The ground is covered with soft artificial grass which means even crawling babies can have a little play.
There are a few tables outside and plenty more inside with wall to ceiling glass so you can keep an eye on the little ones (and even enjoy an uninterrupted coffee or brunch if you are lucky!).
Nature Boy has a fantastic café menu with breakfast and lunch options and the barista does the most beautiful coffee art I have ever seen. It is a great place to meet with friends or just take the kids on your own for a coffee when you are having one of those ‘we need to get out of the house’ days.
Where: Nature Boy Café is located at 486 Neerim Road Murrumbeena. It is open every day until 4.30pm.
