TOFWD* Prahran

A perfect pit stop for a refuel and a rest for tired kiddies after using the park, tennis courts and playground. Also a great store and café for local residents. Love the quality healthy and organic options.

TOFWD is geared towards both littlies and grown ups – the take home dinners include Thomas the Tank Engine pasta with bolognese sauce, their organic deli range includes baby food for tiny diners who have entered the world of solids and babycino’s and organic gingerbread people are a menu staple, to name but a few of the kiddie-pleasing options. For adults there are some delicious looking salads and healthy quiches and baked goodies that everyone will enjoy including muffins, slices and cookies. There’s even organic doggie bone biscuits for your four legged companions!

For the little ones, there is baby-change in the toilets, plenty of colourful kids plastic tumblers and plates, two well-stocked toy boxes as well as some mini tables and chairs for the kids to sit at whilst they eat and play. So this café certainly caters for children in a big way. Combined with its position next to the tennis courts, its location within the park and its close proximity to the safe fenced in playground – this is a parents haven!

And while TOFWD has lifted the game of the humble old Orrong Kiosk – the basics are still covered. I reckon the coffee is now even better and you can still pick up the morning papers!

Please note that occasionally an enthusiastic dog will enter the seating space – there is no way to stop dogs visiting as this is a dog off leash park, so just be mindful of this with your little ones.
