Kids and adults alike will love this new cafe – Go West

Scandinavian interiors. High quality offerings. Smooth coffee. Spacious table seating. Outdoor play.

The perfect combination for delicious and hassle-free brunch date for four mamas and eight kids.

Eight kids?! When did that happen? In the blink of an eye we’ve got preschool aged kids plus four prams with toddlers in them, all of us wanting somewhere easy but pretty to eat and play.

Enter Go West Tuckshop and Eatery. A hot tip from one of our mothers group friends had us heading to the new Woodlea Estate as she said it was worth the trip (thanks Alison!). She was so right!

We played. We ate. We ogled beautiful display homes with huge his and her wardrobe spaces.

All in all it was a fabulous day out.

So fabulous in fact that we were back the next day practically inhaling their cheeseburger with bloody Mary aoili and fries! Daniel ordered the ham and cheese croissant and I patiently waited for his leftovers however I only got one bite! It was heaven…that creamy bechamel sauce.The menu is well rounded with something for everyone and a kids menu as well!

Where: 27 Woodlea blvd, Rockbank
When: Open 7 days a week. For opening hours visit their website here.
What: A gorgeous family friendly cafe. It totally made me want to go home and redecorate our home to get this same Scandinavian vibe. Wonderfully friendly and professional service, we ended up dining here two days in a row!

Fun Fact: The cafe is managed and owned by those behind the esteemed Melbourne restaurants of Entrecote and Second Home. Head west next time you’re after something delicious to eat and a playground to unleash the big kid inside. More pics of the playground can be found here!
