Quick, quick, hurry up. If we pack up now we can be there in 30 minutes!
This cafe is in a lovely location, right by the beautiful Baths. There are scrumptious views over the beach and the harbour, I love watching all the bobbing boats.
I’ve had a few wonderful times sitting on this cafe deck, mind you, not with the kids. When the kids come too, we only get takeaway as I can’t pry them off the beach or out of the playground.
Which is just the way it should be.
Balmoral Boatshed Cafe

Phone: 9969 6006
Open: Daily 7am–5pm
Alongside the baby and toddler-friendly Baths area of Balmoral Beach, right beside the water, is this terrific cafe.
Food can be taken away as well as eaten in the cafe, very handy for mums and dads of littlies.
Drinks, snacks and full breakfasts, lunches are served. And don’t forget the ice blocks.
A large deck overlooks the baths, it can be very crowded at times and strollers can be a problem.
The cafe can be a very hectic place on warm summer days, but the staff remain swift and cheery under pressure.
Toilets/Baby change: Yes, inside kiosk. There are toilets in the changing room, shower and toilet block at the baths.
Children’s menu: Yes
Mum’s report: When the children are a bit older you can watch them play on the beach from the cafe—luxury.
Extra: The excellent playground is close, its rubber softfall making it good for crawlers. All the joys and pleasures of Balmoral Beach.
