I like rainbows and long walks on the beach.

Three Williams, five stars. It's a large industrial style cafe with a lot of soul. I didn't expect it to be kid-friendly, but it was surprisingly so.
We came for breakfast on Saturday morning in a party of 7 and were seated at the round table in the corner. It's a great spot -- roomy and comfortable. The menu is great, and they allowed me to order a couple of sides for the toddler, and even offer half-sized (and half-priced) juices and banana smoothies for the littles.
The lovely waitress who served us had a huge smile on her face and was incredibly warm. She even came over to offer me a mini fork for the one year old, and allowed a friend to order an off-the-menu item (I can't say what it is) because it was his birthday.
Coffees are great, the brioche French toast is as decadent as it sounds, and the scrambled eggs and hash brown I ordered for the one year old was delicious - I know because I ended up eating most of it.
On the back wall is a large chalkboard which is great for entertaining older kids. The walls on either side of the cafe feature some amazing art I wish I could afford.
We got there early and found a large table really easily, but the cafe got busy around 9:30. At the corner of my eye, I see a staff member gesturing at our table to someone waiting outside, but at no point did anyone make us feel like we had to leave. We ordered a last round of coffees and cleared ourselves out before we became a nuisance.
You line up at the counter in the centre of the cafe to pay, and the friendly staff wishes our friend a happy birthday and cracks a couple of jokes.
I loved the food, the service and the laid back vibe. Great first visit; I can't wait to plan the next!
The Armory Wharf Cafe is a great spot for young families. Located right between Blaxland Riverside Park (otherwise known as heaven for kids) and Parramatta River, it's a great choice for a post playtime meal. The menu is pretty extensive, and they cater for children. The cafe is equipped with high chairs, children's plates and cutlery. The food is great, but don't expect it to blow your mind.
This is cupcake heaven. There is a good range of flavours to choose from, each stunning in its own right.
The hot favourite is the red velvet, and on special occasions like Valentine's Day they do it with really beautiful rose shaped frosting.
Cupcakes come in mini sizes as well, but you'd be kicking yourself if you only got yourself a mini.
Tip: stop for traditional Breton galettes up the road at Four Frogs Creperie, then grab the $6 takeaway coffee and cupcake special from The Classic Cupcake Company.
