The Cove Dining Co

The space is large with plenty of room for prams, the secluded lawn at the back is perfect for toddlers and the food and coffee is amazing

The Cove Dining Co is located in a leafy residential area of Abbotsford in a charming heritage listed 1910 building called ‘The Pavillion’. It used to be the community hall of the Abbotsford Nestle factory site. Alfresco dining is offered on the front and back verandahs or there is plenty of seating in side and room for prams. The back verandah opens onto the lawn and gardens, which are perfect for toddlers. The head chef is Brock Coffrey (formerly of Rockpool) so the food is superb with a south American influence.

The owners are very welcoming of children and the vibe is positive and inviting. The space is large enough to accommodate mothers groups with prams. When we visited during the week, the place was full of mothers with prams and toddlers. The children’s breakfast menu consists of boiled egg and toast, pancakes or bacon and eggs. All excellent quality at reasonable prices! The same goes with lunch – the children menu items are diverse and well priced! This is great for those with younger children who don’t want to spend $15 on lunch when only half will be eaten. Choose from a cheese jaffle, pasta and cheese, spaghetti meatballs, burger or fish and chips. The owners have children and have obviously put lots of thought into a healthy, diverse and well priced children’s menu.

Most items on the menu are made in house and apparently they don’t even own a microwave so you know you are getting fresh, quality ingredients. I ordered the muesli which is made in house with almonds, oats, sesame seeds and preserved fruit – not only was it tasty but healthy without the sugary taste I get from most muesli. Breakfast specialties include the Applewood smoked bacon sandwich and House Smoked Trout with fried egg, potato hash and herbs on toast.
