Being a parent is hard in so many ways.
Bringing kids out for a meal can be extremely difficult, especially if there is no entertainment to keep them occupied. However, nothing beats having the time to bond with your loved ones over a hearty meal and to see the goofy smiles on your kids’ faces. Kids are fickle creatures and probably have the same attention span as a puppy. That said, having kid-friendly elements such as a playground or a kids menu would help family meals a lot less chaotic.
From cafes with a soft-fall playground to a mini buffet catered to kids and a dedicated reading corner to the little ones, here is our guide to 13 kid-friendly restaurants in Singapore.
Having kids is pure joy, right up until the point they start to whine, cry and cause a scene in public. That’s right, nothing sucks the living joy out of a family outing quite like a tantrum-throwing child.
Dining out is inherently difficult if you have a kid that’s easily restless but it doesn’t always have to be a problem. All you need is something that’ll keep them occupied, for instance, an iPad with cartoons playing on loop (as per the norm nowadays), or better yet, a kid-centric menu with attractive yummies or even space for them to run wild and free.
Don’t own an iPad? Well, fret not mommies and daddies because here is our list of 15 restaurants and cafes in Singapore that are great for your little ones, ensuring that you’ll be able to enjoy family time through proper bonding.
The March holidays are just around the corner and that means that the kids won’t be relying on canteen food for a whole week. We are sure that many parents out there will be fretting over what to feed their hungry, fussy kids during this one week break and we understand; it can be a pretty huge pain.
Therefore, we have consolidated this list of 7 themed cafes in Singapore (1 for every day of the week!) to help make your life a little easier. From a Harry Potter themed cafe to one dedicated to superheroes from the DC Universe, we have zero doubts that these colourful, quirky cafes will keep your hyperactive kids entertained, satisfied and full!
Our favourite Fresh Fruits Lab (FFL) is back at it again. They have opened a second cafe—Fresh Fruits Lab Z Edition—in Clementi just behind NUS.
The new outlet is nothing short of amazing. Just like their previous branch, they stick to the core of incorporating fruits into their menu as much as possible, being kid-friendly, and serving up absolutely delicious food at even more reasonable prices than before.
We already know what’s great at their first branch, so what is it about The Z Edition that makes it fantastic? A bouncy castle for kids during the weekends! And on top of that, there are some tweaks to the menu and here is everything we love.
From now until 30 Nov 2018, kids below 8 dine for free during weekends at Fresh Fruits Lab Z when you quote ‘ladyironchef’. Every order of a main course comes with a complimentary kid’s main (from the kids’ menu).
Calling all mommies: this is also the next brunch spot you must bring your kids to for a jolly good time!
Hardly anyone enjoys the idea of returning to work on Monday after an entire weekend of pure relaxation and fun. But such is life, isn’t it?
Thankfully, there are more ways than one to alleviate said Monday blues and one of the best ways we know how is to treat ourselves to a solid cafe meal. Taking into consideration the full-works, from artisanal coffees, teas to a plethora of over-the-top cafe grub, if there was ever a way to cheer us up on a dull workday, those would surely help.
Here is our guide to 19 cafes that open on Mondays for you to treat yourself on a dreadful, soul-crushing Monday.
No surprises here—Fresh Fruits Lab (FFL) is our favourite cafe in the East of Singapore. This has never changed since our first visit in 2015.
The themed cafe has seen a revamp recently and it is nothing short of amazing. Still keeping their core laboratory theme and incorporating fruits into their menu, FFL now boasts a colourful, pastel interior that is both whimsical and photogenic.
It has also become a kids-friendly dining outlet with a play corner for your little ones as well as a low-salt kids menu that is so reasonably priced.
How can a cafe make us fall in love so much? FFL always does it best. Here are some of our favourite dishes from its current menu. You need to bring your squad here for your next gathering!
Singaporeans are blessed with a strong cafe scene in this little red dot we call home. Almost every region in the city has a good handful of cafes for you to explore – all the way from Pasir Ris to Jurong. Yes, even the west!
Although the west may sound like a far away land to many of you who do not reside there, we would gladly make our way there for a good cup of coffee or simply to appreciate the unique cafe interior design. We like to think of it as taking a day trip there with our friends in search of hidden gems in Singapore.
In this guide, we share with you our updated list of 42 Cafes in the West of Singapore You Must Visit. READ ON
Raising kids in Singapore is not a cheap affair and a family meal can be costly, especially when you bring them to a good restaurant; even kids’ meals at many eateries do not come cheap.
We often see parents sharing mains with their little ones—either to save money or to “not waste food”. More often than not, it’s the former.
Fortunately, there are some restaurants in Singapore that have been generously offering free meals for children. Here are 5 Restaurants in Singapore Where Kids Dine For Free.
