Hardware Cafe Bunnings Chatwood has to be one of the best-kept secrets of the lower north shore for kid friendly dining. The best part about the cafe is the free gated soft play area.
The menu is simple and everything is served in disposable cups and plates. Choose from a wide variety of sandwiches, quiches, fresh fruit, pies, muffins, cakes and cookies. Sit and enjoy the smooth coffee and a treat whilst the kids play in the soft play area which is securely gated. There is also a selection of kids play houses to explore.
Bunnings café is the perfect venue for a mothers group catch with plenty of rooms for prams and change facilities just nearby. If you visit on a Saturday, it is full of young children and they offer free face painting and kids DIY craft activities upstairs between 11am-2pm.
