    Default Melbourne CBD with bub

    Can anybody recommend somewhere in Melbourne's CBD that would be good for two mommies and babies (10 months) to meet during the week? We live on opposite sides of the city and don't get together very often as it's just too far, especially with her dd to pick up from school!

    Fitzroy gardens! Loads of grass to spread out on. Grab a coffee on the way and take a little picnic morning tea. At 10 months presumably the kidlets can't get too far so spread out and enjoy yourselves!

    The Children's Gallery at the Melbourne Museum is great - it's in Carlton, so just a wee bit out of the CBD so to speak but an easy walk or tram ride away.

    Are you looking for activities for the littles ones or just a place up hang out (like a shopping area)?

    There is a play centre in Docklands that is nice. Monkey Mania...not my fave meeting spot but has a baby area and their coffee is ok.


    Carlton - Birdie Num Nums is fab...lots of room, kids play area, room for prams.

    ALso one in South Melbourne that is fabulous is Cheeky Chino's...has a great play area, very kid friendly, awesome service and right near South Melbourne Markets. Prob my fave for good coffee with kids under 3 ish

    Do you both have cars? If so I would suggest going to places just out of the city for a better experience

    Not the coolest place but I find The Pancake Parlour in Melb Central to be an easy place to take kids. They don't mind if the kids get rowdy.

    Cheeky Chinos has gone from Sth Melb I think, I'm pretty sure I saw its up for lease.

    Monkey Mania is at harbour town but I wouldn't recommend parking there, it's very expensive.

    Myer in Bourke st mall have a cafe on level 3 I think it is which isn't bad. David jones have the food mall down in the basement. QV has quite a few coffee type places.

    If you want to roll the dice there is the children's garden at botanical gardens, there is also the observatory cafe so if it rained you have somewhere to go.

    Crown has a few cafés and the movies if you could do a mums and bubs session if they have them.

    I'll keep thinking.
