While many of us enjoy a boozy brunch from time to time, you can't deny that a little family time is good for the soul. With this in mind, we've scoured the city to find the best kid friendly restaurants which offer the best play areas, kids menus, magic tricks, and more, to entertain you and your little ones.
Topping our list of family eateries is Belgian beer house FRITES
, which offers a dedicated FRITES café kids area every Saturday and Sunday in its Central, Wan Chai, Causeway Bay, and Quarry Bay branches. Parents can sit back and relax with a beer and delicious food (we highly recommend the Weekend Roast)
while little ones can stretch their imaginations as they role play as customers, cashiers, dish washers, and baristas in the mini pop-up cafés. Kids can also delve into a menu of hearty pub grub with favourites like Spag Bol
and Bangers & Mash
(both $75), as well as smoothies and milkshakes. The venue also hosts children's parties at the weekend, so this is a good one to bear in mind if a special little someone has a birthday coming up.
FRITES, locations vary
Located in Causeway Bay and Tsim Sha Tsui, Jamie's Italian
serves up hearty, rustic dishes in a warm and relaxed venue which boasts an award-winning children's menu, play area, kid friendly cooking workshops, and a range of family-focused activities. The menu caters for little kids ($68 each) and big kids ($78), featuring healthy options like the Five-a-day Picnic Box
and Fantastic Fish Stew
, alongside a fresh shake-me salad and a drink of their choice. Both branches accommodate children's parties and special celebrations, and the team are happy to customise each event to suit your needs and budget, from the venue layout to the menu options. They are also located in popular shopping hubs, making this a great spot to refuel during a family day spent hitting the shops.
