It's funny how life changes.
My favourite cafes used to be the ones that not only served great coffee but that also had all the daily papers. A one year old grandson changes all that. Now it is the cafes that serve great coffee and are in close proximity to a quiet park with playground equipment suitable for 1 year olds.
Top of the list at the moment is 47 Kirwan Street in Floreat which has a great park just around the corner.
Why is it great? Because it has a BOAT.
The Hobart Deli in North Perth also has a terrific (and very popular) park directly opposite it. No boat, but lots of other good interactive things.
