Dining with Tweens and Teenagers in Perth

Little kids are well catered for at restaurants with play corners and playgrounds, but what happens when the kids grow out of all that?! Most restaurants and cafes in Perth offer kids’ menus for ankle bitters to the age of 12-ish. So when your tween or teen graduates to the adult’s menu – but would still like a little entertainment, where do you take them for dinner?! I have a teenager myself – eek! So now eating out mainly revolves around what we’ll actually be eating, and he doesn’t want chicken nuggets, thanks very much. Check out my big guide to dining with teenagers in Perth.


The Teen That loves Burger and Pizzas

Milky Lane, Perth

Milky Lane Perth is a great place to dine with teens, thanks to its fun and lively atmosphere and delicious menu offerings. The restaurant’s graffiti-style artwork and upbeat music create a cool and trendy vibe that is sure to appeal to teenagers. And with a menu that includes mouth-watering burgers, loaded fries, and creative milkshakes, there’s plenty of options to satisfy their cravings. Read the Buggybuddys review of Milky Lane.

    We recently took our 11 and 14yo to Palace Arcade in Vic Park. Great pizzas, retro games and pinball machines. You buy a game card which can be shared and games are only $1-$2 each. We bought a $25 card and you get $30 worth of games. Great fun
