Zamia Cafe

May Drive Parkland, in Kings Park, has to be a favourite spot amongst Perth families. Also known as the “Dinosaur Park”, thanks to it’s many life-sized dino statues, it’s also home to a fantastic, family-friendly cafe. Zamia Cafe is an ideal location for a casual family breakfast or lunch.

Zamia Café is open 7 days a week, for breakfast, brunch, coffee and cake and lunch.  Indoor and alfresco dining is available, though the cafe is quite open, even when dining inside. The busy spot takes bookings, as well as walk-ins – though you may need to hop on their waitlist in peak times and you’ll receive a call when your table is ready. Waiting is not a chore at May Parklands, since the kids can burn off energy in the playground and build up an appetite. There’s plenty of high chairs too.

The café has a large range of fresh bakes and cakes, plus slices and muffins in the cabinets. Plus, very good coffee!

We stopped by for brunch, and on the menu you’ll find all the usual suspects. I enjoyed the eggs benny, on gluten free bread, with deliciously thick bacon.

The kiddos demolished the fluffy pancakes, washed down with a strawberry milkshake. 

The girls loved the pancakes, served with maple syrup and vanilla ice cream. 

There’s plenty of choice on the kids’ menu, including healthy options. 

If you would rather dine on a picnic rug in the park, the café offers a dedicated takeaway area serving coffee, drinks, snacks and easy to eat lunch selections. If you have holding a celebration in the park and don’t wish to cater yourself, a range of platters can be ordered from the café. Orders need to be placed at least 4 days in advance. And when we finished our delicious brunches, we enjoyed a wander around the parklands, while the kids explored.
