This cafe offers Thai-Western fusion food (which are also Halal) and a wide range of craft activities that will keep your children engaged. It’s a bit like a daycare-restaurant hybrid, so it costs $5 an hour (or $5 for every 2 hours on weekdays). Good thing that the art materials are pretty much unlimited.
The restaurant also has a wide range of more advanced crafts materials that parents can purchase. There’s foil art, paper puppets, DIY dolls and monsters, sock monkey kits, and a lot more.
Eat Play Love Cafe is located at the Aliwal Arts Centre. Look for the resto with the quirky vintage aesthetic.
