Such a very lovely cafe, it’s been designed to be very family-friendly and it succeeds very well.
It’s slap bang alongside a very large, fully-fenced playground, with lovely water views, in an extensive park.
No wonder Flying Fox Cafe is one of the areas best-known meccas for anyone with a young family.

A lovely spot! This cafe is right beside a wonderful playground and caters very well for families. There are some toys for the children, plenty of space for strollers.
Flying Fox Cafe has very lovely water views over peaceful Pittwater, and there is a lot of undercover and outdoor seating in which to enjoy those views. The cafe is not at all near any roads or cars, however the water is pretty close and there’s only hedging and grass between the water and the cafe, so look out if you have a bolting or wandering young child.
You can enjoy coffee and cakes, excellent breakfasts and light or full lunches. The cuisine is modern Australian.
There is a terrific kids menu with some good, healthy options— hooray, this is all too rare!
