Let’s face it, mamas. When you’re out with your girlfriends, possibly also other mamas, your children hate it. They probably whine about going home as soon as possible, and complain how boring it is for them, making it impossible for you and your friends to enjoy good conversation over a cup of coffee. Then, everyone’s mood is simply ruined. 😅
Why not try these kids-friendly cafes in KL & Selangor next time you have a meetup with your friends? While you spend some well-deserved quality time with your friends, maybe even with your partner in tow, your little ones can engage in their own activities, which will keep them occupied for the whole time! A win-win situation for both you and your children!😄

But on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Noriter Cafes goes the extra mile for children as they offer storytelling as well as arts and crafts sessions, which you have to sign up for. If your child wants to use the playground, it costs RM 20. However, it is unclear if you spend on food there, whether you’ll be able to access the playground for free. 😊

8. Benbino (Publika, KL)
Brought to you by The Big Group, Benbino is the kid-friendly version of their other food outlets. If you’re okay with sugary treats for your little ones, then you and your kids will be delighted with the candy selection here. If not, then good luck trying to keep them away from the dazzling display. Or.. if you have babies, there’s a space for you to park your strollers. If your kids are older, they can then have fun in the playground there! Besides that, the menu is also kid-friendly with balanced meals that come in kid-sized portions. Other activities such as colouring and joining play workshops are also available there! 😀

Out of Africa is mostly outdoors anyway, so kids will be able to enjoy themselves no matter what activity they engage in. Besides that, they also have a kid-friendly menu, which has burgers, nuggets, and milkshakes to entice them. Is your child’s birthday coming up? Why not throw them a party here?
