Melville is a city in Perth’s south that is located along the banks of the Swan River and with lots of opportunity to hit the shops at Garden City and in Myaree’s retail precinct. It’s also a city that has lots of options for child-friendly coffee. Here are some of the best child-friendly cafes in Melville.
Little Olive Leaf Café, Willagee 7 Archibald Street, Willagee Cafe open for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea daily
Little Olive Leaf Café in Willagee is a double whammy of child-friendliness – not only does it have a great kids play area at the back of the café, surrounded by natural shade, but it is also directly opposite Carawatha Park, which has a playground. So even if the café is busy, you can order to go and let the kids run wild in the park. You can read more here.

Having the support and friendship of other mums who are living the same experience is important for the well-being of every mum. Here are 7 reasons to join a real-world mums group:
2 Greenfingers, Willagee 96 Bawden Street, Willagee Open for breakfast and lunch daily
2 Greenfingers serves a huge variety of raw and vegan food, along with great coffee in a child-friendly environment. There’s toys to keep the kids amused, and after you’ve enjoyed a hot beverage, breakfast or brunch, you can head over to Webber Reserve, which is right across the road and has a little nature playground for the kids. You can read more about the café and playground here.

Blue Water Grill, Heathcote Reserve, Applecross 58 Duncraig Road, Applecross Restaurant and kiosk open for breakfast and lunch daily
Heathcote Reserve is the home of one of the best playgrounds in Perth – the huge pirate ship playground overlooking the Swan River. The Blue Water Grill has both a formal dining area, but also a takeaway kiosk and café area just next to the toddlers’ play area.
Walter’s Café, Point Walter, Bicton Honor Avenue, Bicton Cafe and kiosk open for breakfast and lunch daily
An all-time favourite of mine, Point Walter is the site of one of the most child-friendly cafes around, with Walter’s River Café and its adjoining takeaway kiosk. Point Walter has lots of shallow areas for the kids to swim, plus two playgrounds and heaps of space to run around. For more information, read on at the Perth Mums Group website.
