We could start off by discussing the wholesome offerings on the Elemental Cafe menu or by pointing out that they make Vegan eating look super enticing but then we would probably run out of space and time because what we really want to point out is that from the M.O.M Approved perspective this venue is child-friendly oasis and we are so proud to have them in our International network of family friendly venues.
You would be forgiven for thinking you’ve stepped into an indoor play centre, because at first glance it’s hard to imagine that this child friendly zone is also a serious eatery with an impressive cosmopolitan menu and a genuine wood-fired pizza oven.
The emphasis here is on clean eating, freshly prepared, good food for young and old, a welcome respite from the junk and convenience foods usually disguised as a children’s menu…
The atmosphere is lovely, the owners Skye and Fred are attentive and friendly from the moment you walk into the restaurant.
We recommend weekend visits as the place is swarming with families of all sizes and backgrounds (booking is advised, as they do fill up quickly).I must say that the one characteristic that jumped out at me was the buzz of laughter in the air during our visit, that says a lot about a venue!
There are tables to seat larger groups and families are seated within close proximity to the secure play area – this gave me peace of mind as I didn’t feel that i had to stand guard over my 3 year old daughter.
The proprietors, obviously parents and grandparents themselves, thought of every conceivable thing that could make a family visit fun and comfortable, there are books and puzzles for older kids, yet the atmosphere is still conducive to someone wishing to read a book in peace.
Menu’s are designed to look like vintage books, that’s a nice classy touch and there is a specific menu for little one’s with freshly squeezed juices and veggie packed meals, meals so good that even the fussiest eater will be tempted to take a bite!
Prices are fair and everything is about the venue feels inviting and wholesome.
The staff are extremely friendly and mindful of children who are visiting the restaurant
Service is fast and I was most impressed to learn that the venue also caters for kiddies parties, so that’s everything under one roof!
P.S. they serve the freshest, tastiest milkshakes too, which are prepared right in front of you with high quality ingredients.
When you visit look for the M.O.M Approved sticker and tell them we sent you 🙂
