Johannesburg

 

1. Moyo (Zoo Lake)


Why:
The creative-art space for children, where they can play, create, learn African dance and traditional African games, and listen to stories. There is also a children’s weekend menu.

 

2. Papachinos


Why:
A jungle gym and a pizza section for children to make their own pizzas.

 

Pretoria

 

3. Afro-Boer


Why:
The kids’ menu called ‘Tots and Tantrums’, which includes different toasted sandwiches, cheese-griller hot dogs, spaghetti and meatballs, and coke floats. Kids can run around on the expansive lawns too.

 

4. Isabella’s Petite


Why:
The kids’ menu with options like cheese omelettes, French toast with bacon and syrup, toasted cheese-and-ham melts or homemade fish fingers.

 

 

Durban

 

5. Col’Cacchio (Gateway)


Why:
The hardy brown paper that covers all the tables also serves as a blank canvas for the bucket of crayons that is delivered. Kids get pizza dough, a rolling pin and biscuit cutters to play with. There is a separate menu for them with a small selection of pizzas and pastas.  

 

6. People’s Park Café 

 

 

Why: The large playground with top-quality equipment that caters for all ages, from toddlers to teens. Bring bikes, Rollerblades and skateboards and make use of the vast walkways before securing a deck table.

 

 

Cape Town

 

7. Kirstenbosch Tea Room


Why: The kids’ menu, Lego and colouring books. The rambling garden is also perfect for family picnics, whether you’re after shady trees or sunny lawns.

Supervised kids’ activities of pizza-making, and baking and decorating cupcakes, as well as the section for kids on the à la carte menu.
