Check out all our fave Kid Friendly Cafés and Restaurants with playgrounds in Singapore

Looking for the best kid friendly cafés and restaurants in Singapore where the rugrats can run wild nearby or play in the playground before your meal? We’ve already lined up all the places in Singapore where kids eat free but you’d be surprised just how many restaurants and cafés in town offer some kind of kids’ play area, whether that be access to sand, a lawn or a proper playground!
NB: Due to Covid-19, some F&B establishments have chosen not to open their playgrounds yet (we have mentioned this where possible but do note situations change so always check with your chosen restaurant first before heading down).

Many of these kid-friendly restaurants offer kids’ activity packs and great children’s meals, plus we make special mention of those offering healthier alternatives to the standard processed nuggets and chips. Our team was divided on what constituted a stroller-friendly restaurant (a lot of it depends if you are happy al fresco or not), so we only mention if a resto stands out as especially unfriendly (lots of steps) or is super great for prams. So without further ado, here’s our round-up of all the best places in Singapore to take the family for a meal — where kids are welcome and there’s something special to make it kid- or baby-friendly.

Kid Friendly Cafés in Dempsey/Tanglin

pantry at Dempsey kid friendly cafe

The Pantry 

Part of the Kids21 family and the COMO Dempsey lifestyle enclave, The Pantry is the newest family-friendly restaurant in Dempsey. The big excitement here is the playground next to Kids21 (that used to be Maggie & Rose) is now open to diners at The Pantry for free! Smaller kids and toddlers may find the treehouse-style playground too difficult to access so there’s also some play equipment right next to the alfresco seating at The Pantry where parents can keep a close eye on kids. Foodwise, look out for their woodfired pizzas and comfort food like Cottage Pie and brownies.

Shady playground at Hubers Bistro makes a great kid friendly cafe
The shady playground at Huber’s Bistro makes for a great family outing

Kid friendly restaurants with playgroundsHuber’s Bistro 

Huber’s Bistro in Dempsey has one of the loveliest shady playgrounds near a restaurant for kids (currently closed until further notice due to pandemic). The play area is right next door to Huber’s Bistro (surrounded by a safety fence) and comes complete with swings, helter-skelter slide, climbing areas and a smaller slide. The bistro offers great Swiss-German beer and food (prepared with the great product from the butchery next door). Huber’s Bistro makes the perfect location to bring the fam for a lazy weekend brunch or early dinner. Try their Charcuterie Platter of Parma, San Daniele, Salami and Mortadella ($14.80) or the 21 Day Dry-Aged Burger ($19.50). They do breakfast on the weekends like Croissant, Home Baked Ham and Coffee for $8.50 plus great sausage dishes; Weisswurst (Bavarian sausage), Pretzel, Sweet mustard and Beer for $11. There’s also some space for prams if parked al fresco.
Kids’ Menu: There’s no kids menu but you can order from the famous Sausage Menu; a pair of Wienerli and potato salad (you can swap this for fries) is a modest $7.90 or smaller child’s portion is $5. Do note, though, that Huber’s Bistro doesn’t open on a Monday and not until 11am on weekdays (9:30am weekends).

Huber’s Bistro, 22 Dempsey Road, Singapore 249679, Tel: (+65) 6737 1488, www.hubers.com.sg

Kid friendly restaurants with playgroundsBaker & Cook+Plank Sourdough Pizza

The new Baker & Cook and Plank Sourdough Pizza at the corner of Loewen Road (in the space formerly occupied by MOCA) is so popular thanks to its awesome little kids wooden playground, a first for Baker & Cook! On the playground you’ll find a bouncy swing, little treehouse, ship, and ride-ons, along with tonnes of green space perfect for running around and getting the wiggles out.

Baker & Cook and Plank Sourdough Pizza, 30C Loewen Road, Singapore 248839

Lots of colouring to occupy kiddos at Carrotsticks & Cravings

Kid friendly restaurants with playgrounds Carrotsticks and Cravings

Carrotsticks and Cravings is a healthy café and deli perched in Loewen Gardens near Dempsey. It’s a hit with preschoolers and mamas alike thanks to the wooden playground with slide and trampoline (currently closed until further notice due to pandemic). They serve Turmeric Lattés and healthy, refined sugar-free dishes. Kids’ dishes include a Sourdough toastie with ham and cheese plus berries ($10), a picnic style pack of Hummus, veg crudites, bread, cheese and popcorn ($13); smoothies; and gluten-free pancakes ($14). Only outdoor seating.

Colbar 

Colbar at Portsdown offers some old school Colonial charm – it’s a casual rustic style kopitiam café set in lush greenery and the big draw here is the abundant open space for kids to run around or kick a football about right in view of the al fresco seating.  The food is casual British pub fare with some Asian dishes thrown in, and all affordable enough to not warrant a separate kids’ meal — think chicken curry and rice ($11), Sausage Sandwiches ($7) and Omelette and chips all washed down with copious beer (for mama and papa only, obviously).

PS.Cafe @ Harding

PS.Cafe is a perennial family favourite and notorious for weekend brunch. There’s no play area as such but there is an open rolling lawn in front of the al fresco seating area so the kids can scramble into the jungle while the adults chow down on hearty salads, pasta dishes, those famous truffle fries, burgers and huge slabs of cake. No kids’ menu here and only booster chairs (as opposed to full high chairs).

P.S. Cafe @ Harding Road, 28b Harding Road, Singapore 249549, Tel: (+65) 6708 9288 www.facebook.com/PS.Cafe

Kid friendly restaurants with playgroundsTBB Safari

Oh how we love TBB Safari in Dempsey (part of the Tiong Bahru Bakery brand)! This safari-style glamping café is pitched in front of sister resto Open Farm Community. TBB Safari is open for early risers from 8am and offers Common Man Roasters coffee and amazing pastries, healthy breakfast bowls and sandwiches (though no specific kids’ menu). There is a 3,000 square foot garden of edible plants to roam through, and a sand pit with preschooler play equipment (currently closed until further notice due to pandemic). Bring mozzie spray! There’s plenty of space for strollers (al fresco but lots of blowers).

TBB Safari, 130E Minden Road,  Singapore 248819, www.tiongbahrubakery.com

Kid friendly restaurants with playgrounds Open Farm Community

Open Farm Community is set in the same lush green edible garden as TBB Safari (see above). It shares the same kid-friendly sand pit play area (currently closed until further notice due to pandemic) though it’s not visible from the seating area. Indoors is glam enough to attract the tai tai crowd (though acoustics can be noisy so watch those yelling toddlers), and there’s some seating outdoors, too. On the dedicated kids’ menu there’s not a nugget or chip in sight — instead think posh kids’ nosh (priced accordingly) like open-faced Bolognese Lasagna or Rustic Fish Pie with fresh thyme from the garden.

Peperoni Pizzeria 

Pizza in the park? This spot screams family-friendly with every kid’s fave meal after a ramble in the Botanics. Peperoni Pizzeria is part of the award-winning Les Amis Group, and has been going strong since the first Peperoni at Greenwood in 2004. Wood-fired pizzas and traditional pastas draw families here but it’s the kid-friendly atmosphere that keeps people coming back. Peperoni Pizzeria also holds pizza-making parties for kids, which sounds like a fabulous way to treat little foodies (and means no mess at home!).
Kids Menu: Peperoni Kids Meals are at $14 for a pasta or kids-sized pizza with a soft drink/juice, and scoop of ice cream. Just ask for a colouring kit for your little ones to colour in.

Peperoni @ Botanic Gardens, 1 Cluny Road, Singapore Botanic Gardens Visitor Centre, Singapore 259569, Tel: (+65) 6467 7326. Check website for details on all 7 locations in Singapore, www.peperoni.com.sg

The café is right next door to the sand play area but if you want to keep kids directly in view know that Food For Tots has a small play area best for toddlers inside the café with a book trolley and some simple games. Closed on Mondays (as is Jacob Ballas).

Rider’s Café

This casual (no air con) cafe serves brunch of eggs and pancakes as well as salads and comfort food. There is no play area on site (and note that it’s on the second level so not ideal with strollers due to the steps), but it remains popular with families on the weekend thanks to its proximity to the kids’ pony rides at the Saddle Club.

Zaffron is a fun spot for Easties looking for Indian fare where the kids can play indoors. A cute wooden wendy house (currently closed until further notice due to pandemic) awaits with kid-friendly toys (better for younger tots).

Kid-friendly events at Camp Kilo Charcoal Club

Camp Kilo Charcoal Club

Camp Kilo Charcoal Club is an all alfresco backyard-style barbecue joint specialising in roast meats. Expect picnic-style wooden tables and meaty feasts of Whole Roasted Hog ($12 per 100g), and Roasted Chicken which are shared for the table (so no kids menu). It’s only open Friday nights and weekends and they often have kids games set up on the pavement but on their special Camp Kido days there is a lot more on offer for kids — keep an eye on their Facebook for the next one.

Camp Kilo Charcoal Club, 66 Kampong Bugis, #01-01, Singapore 338987, www.kilokitchen.com/camp-kilo-charcoal-club
