Lark Cafe Scarborough

Lark Review

Finding the perfect coffee catch up spot, when friends and family have children of different ages, can be tricky. When I catch up with my sisters we need somewhere that is entertaining enough for my 7 year old but safe enough for my 1-year-old nephews!

The newly opened Lark cafe in Scarborough is the answer! The huge drawcard is the fully fenced and gated nature playground!

This playground is better than many public playgrounds! In the centre, there’s a fort structure that can be accessed by a wooden bridge or by climbing one of the wooden ladders or rope netting. There’s a great slide down off this structure. Under the fort, there’s also a sandpit which the little ones particularly enjoyed.

Adjoining the Fort is a flying fox platform! This is a cool flying fox with some decent speed on it. My kids were really happy! The flying fox can also be accessed by the monkey bars!

Other great features include a wooden boat with a moving steering wheel and a nest swing.

Around the edge of the playground, there are picnic tables so it’s easy to supervise whilst enjoying your coffee.

There’s a great range of food and drink options (I need to go back to try something more substantial) but on this visit, I just had a coffee and my girls had a kids chocolate milkshake each. They also shared a small grazing plate – the perfect in-between meals snack! For $4 it consisted of some veggie sticks, cheese and crackers and you can add hummus for 50c (the kids dug into this before I could get a pic haha).

All of that makes for a great cafe on its own but there’s more! Inside there’s a super cute space for smaller bubs or for a quieter catch up. In this lounge area, there are comfy couches, books and board games, a teepee and small toys. This lounge can also be booked for parent groups or book clubs etc.

There’s another bigger room with bigger games and space for kids to run around. I couldn’t get any photos of this area as there seemed to be a playgroup in there at the time, but it looked like a great air-conditioned option for a play and coffee.

We had such a fun, easy catch-up – good coffee and the kids loved the playground. Can’t wait to hear back!
