Hidden within Plant Bug Garden Centre is a gorgeous little cafe serving breakfast, lunch and high tea. Ladybird Cafe is welcoming to everyone, from parents with prams to seniors. What you will find is a relaxed environment, friendly staff and plenty to keep the little ones occupied.
Entry to the cafe is through the nursery and gift shop and I highly recommend using the nursery entrance with prams and active toddlers. The seating area is not large, so the cafe always suggests that you book for larger groups of high tea. Ladybird is very popular for high tea, which is served to adults and little ones. For $25, adults receive finger sandwiches, scones and sweet treats with a coffee or tea.
Little ones can join in for $10 and they receive nuggets or finger sandwiches with mixed fruit, cupcake and milkshake. What a fun idea for a special morning or afternoon outing. The main menu consists of sweet treats, all day breakfast, sandwiches and light meals. With most items under $10, meals are very affordable.
There are two boxes of toys to keep little ones occupied. We could have spent hours perusing the garden centre and gift shop. Plant Bug really does have a charm about it with a strong community feel. It is this relaxed atmosphere that makes it perfect for a eating out with little ones.
