Living in Melbourne certainly has it's perks. No matter how many wonderful cafes we visit there always seem to be more around the corner. One lovely cafe that certainly works well for families is Cowderoys Dairy Cafe. Situated in the heart of St.Kilda West it's a great place to head for great coffee and breakfast. The bonus besides the lovely food and drinks is that there is a nice outdoor deck seating area as well as a playground. The interior is that from a classic milk bar and the retro lovers will have a field day here. Great old furniture and fixtures that will take you right back to the good old days. The service was lovely and hardly any wait for the food at all. The kids loved taking in all the small details in the cafe like the hanging kites in the roof, or the old toys carefully displayed on the shelves traveling along the walls.
After we had filled up with some lovely breakfast and had our fun on the playground we explored the nearby alley ways and found some more nice hang outs and parks that we definitely will have to come back to explore some more! Both kiddos are wearing outfits from the amazing new collection from Bobo Choses - Der Blaue Reiter. A blast of colour and creative patterns which is right up our alley and became instant favourites with the kids & us parents. You can find the collection over at Buckets & Spades right now in store and it will go online on January 19th. Be sure to be fast as this brand sells out very quickly and sizes are limited.
