In our never-ending quest to bring you the latest and greatest from around town, we got wind of a new cafe in Burwood called Twinkle Kids Cafe and made a beeline to check it out! Located in Burwood Plaza, this cafe is a kids’ HEAVEN for about a gazillion reasons.
The cafe works on an entry fee model (similar to ChouChou Bebe in Lidcombe), which if you go at the right time can be as low as $15 for 2 kids for 2 hours. Adults are $4 which can be redeemed for a free coffee or hot beverage, and children under 12 months are free.
After parking your pram, removing shoes (socks only!) and entering through the child-proof gate, the kids are free to explore! They can enjoy all kinds of activities from slides, to dress up, shops, cooking toys, puzzles, a Lego wall and much more. Our kids particularly enjoyed the multi-level enclosed play structure that runs along the side of the cafe, ending in a colourful ball pit.
Best suited for kids aged 1 – 4 years old, Twinkle Kids Cafe is somewhere parents can actually relax for a while knowing kids are just a few metres away and having a great time. Thanks to the cosy size of the venue and its floor plan, all play areas are visible from the tables so keeping an eye on the kids is easy.
Food & Drink
The cafe section of the venue offers a combination of both tables and couches, which means you can comfortably enjoy a coffee (while breastfeeding a baby as per the image below!) or order a bite to eat. Most menu items are around $10 and come in very cute mouse-shaped platters with fruit in one “ear” and sauce in the other – our kids thought it was great. The adults in our party split a beef burger, a Schnitty burger (not pictured) and enjoyed freshly squeezed juices and beautifully made coffees.
Twinkle Kids Cafe host loads of birthday parties and have a really great set up for them (see image below). To find out more, give them a call via the number below!
Burwood Plaza has a multi-level undercover car park which is free for 2 hours. On the way out we took the opportunity to do the weekly grocery shop at Woolies on the Ground Foor, seeing as the kids were now tuckered out!
