Green Tambourine

A very kid friendly cafe with an ace name has opened up in Albion Street, Brunswick. Great coffee - five sense - and our very own drinking chocolate is available there as well.

I've taken these photos and review from the lovely Jolie's website - Hey Bambini. Hey Bambini reviews and rates kid friendly cafes - whic, now that my son is a little bit older, is a very good tool to use! Gus is not so good at sitting still, but very good at getting into things that are left within reach and generally creating havoc in a non-kid friendly environment!

Hey Bambini Review of Green Tambourine Cafe 

We always love finding a brand new baby friendly cafe, especially one that has just opened their doors. Green Tambourine is very much the newcomer to the cafe world in Brunswick and it was an absolute delight to visit.

As soon as l entered l was greeted by the friendly staff and as l had “number one son” screaming on my hip l was promptly told the sandpit and toys are out in the courtyard and offered a coffee straight away – what joy! The enclosed courtyard is just perfect for the wee ones. A small brightly coloured sandpit awaits filled with various digging tools and toys, and if that’s not enough to keep your toddler tamed Green Tambourine also offer a box of blocks to play with and a basket of colouring books and crayons to occupy little hands and minds.

Green Tambourine have thought of everything when it comes to kids – the toilet even has a change table complete with emergency wipes, nappies and disposable bibs – how considerate! Just the thing if you have left the house in a mad flap. There is ample room to move the pram inside and out of the cafe and there are plenty of seating options. A large communal table sits next to the open fire and for the warmer months there is loads footpath seating where even your four legged friends are welcome.

The menu caters for all tastes with hearty breakfast treats right down to gourmet ciabattas for lunch. If you just want to pop in for coffee or fresh juice than that’s fine too – why not treat yourself to one of the many homemade baked goodies and watch the kids play.

Green Tambourine doesn’t specifically have a separate children’s menu as such but they can adapt the main menu to cater for the kids if they want something special like a cheese toastie, porridge or hot cakes.

With colourful babycinos and special colourful plastic kitchen serving ware for the kids, we highly recommend a visit to Green Tambourine, and afterwards you can take the kids to the park – which is just next door.
