Please note that Treehouse Cafe is no longer in operation.
Yet another addition to the list of kids friendly restaurant at Turf City is Treehouse Cafe. I discovered it when I went to meet my friend for tea at Turf City on Thursday. However, MF wasn’t with me that day, so I just popped over to take some photos. There were only a few kids playing there on the weekday and the place looked really nice and cozy.
The ‘treehouse’ has two levels. On the first level, there are some magazines and books for reading, and tables and chairs for playing toys such as Lego and bead-chaser. The second level is pretty bare, only one toy rack with a few toys. Note that there are small objects like tiny lego pieces in the play area, so young toddlers need to be supervised.
There are some pretty comfortable seats that allow you a good view of the play area, so you can sit back and enjoy a drink while watching your kids play inside.
Today, I met my family at Turf City for lunch and immediately suggested coming to Treehouse Cafe. MF had so much fun playing with his cousins and the adults were able to have a peaceful meal while the 3 kids entertained themselves at the play area!
But on a weekend, the play area was pretty crowded and the toys were strewn all over and the staff did not bother trying to pack them up the whole time we were there. Oh well, think their job is more to serve the diners than to pick up toys (which would anyway be thrown all over again right after they pick them up.)
Overall, although the food wasn’t fantastic, this cafe still warrants a visit with the kids because the play area is good enough to keep them entertained for an hour or two. In addition, they are located pretty near the nursing room which makes it very convenient for nursing. And they have a diaper-changing room within the cafe!
They also offer party packages if you are looking for a venue to throw your kid’s birthday party.
