field black, northcote

Something amazing happened today. Mamma went to a beautiful cafe, drank a hot coffee, got through (nearly!) a whole meal and talked to her friend… and the toddler WAS THERE!! It’s the simple dream of any parent, isn’t it?! This is why we love kid-friendly cafes so much and Field Black is a particularly gorgeous one!

The food is unique and delicious, with a kids menu featuring healthy options (and pink pancakes!) Lots of dietary friendly choices are available too. The interior is beautifully styled and there’s a sunny courtyard that leads outside from, Mamma’s favourite, a picturesque little alfresco laneway with a European feel. But the pièce de résistance is definitely the ‘field of dreams’ kids corner! Here you’ll find picture books, wooden toys and games interesting enough to keep the little ones occupied while you enjoy your smashed avo - and maybe even a brownie too!

mamma special mention: Mamma loves taking the little one for a play at Rubie Thomson Reserve, there’s a great playground and lots of pretty spots for picnics or a kick of the footy!
