I'm always on the lookout for a cafe that serves good food and coffee and is kid friendly. One of our favourites is Little Tommy Tucker on Centre Road in Bentleigh. The Bentleigh strip is great for food shopping and errands, but the cafe scene is still evolving and a bit lacklustre apart from a few little gems.

Little Tommy Tucker has a light and airy interior which offers a quiet refuge from the busy strip. Although its quite popular and often busy, we have always been lucky enough to get a large table with space to park the at times double pram. We like to sit down the back where my 3 year old likes to watch the hustle bustle of the kitchen through the pass.
For kids there are a few toys and books tucked away at the back of the restaurant. The kids menu is simple but so affordable and the meals are quite substantial.
The staff are friendly and attentive and the food has always been very good. I have tried a number of meals off the menu and they never disappoint. The coffees and baked treats are great too.
