With Christmas fast approaching and there being lots of activities and things to do in the city with the family, it’s important to know where you can keep your kids fed and happy. We have put together a little guide of all the best places to feed your kids and stop to refuel during the busy festive season.

Coco Cane might become a quick favourite for the sweet tooth in the family! After lunch you may want to leave a little room for one of Coco Cane’s indulgent bubble waffles.

Bean Bar, Perfect Cup, Fair Espresso


I think we can all agree that coffee is an essential part to any parent’s day and lucky for you, coffee is in abundant supply at Central Market Arcade! From Bean Bar to Perfect Cup or even Fair Espresso you will be sure to find someplace to stop and refuel with a latte and treat the kids with a babycino or hot chocolate.
