Carnevale Coffee Roasters – Clarence Park and now Eastwood
If you are anything like most parents and carers of young kids I know then you probably enjoy 3 things:
- happy kids playing independently,
- going somewhere (yep, out of the house) where you don’t have to keep your child confined to a high chair the whole time for fear of them getting lost or hurt,
Roll on Carnevale Coffee Roasters, a consistent favourite of ours here at Kids in Adelaide since they opened a few years ago in Clarence Park. Lucky for us we are only a 10 min drive from there so our kids have been visiting regularly since they were born! With quite a big space, a huge blackboard running along an entire wall, high chairs, couches, change table, toys, amazing tasty snacks and baby cinos, Carnevale is a great place to go with kids. At times (but not always) they have their outdoor area out the back open and the kids can play out on the grass while I catchup with my friends over coffee in the sun.
Well, I was even more excited to hear that they have recently opened another, smaller Carnevale store on Glen Osmond Road in Eastwood. We have visited a couple of times now and am happy to say the coffee, food and people are just as lovely as the Clarence Park location. With onstreet parking, and even better easy off-street parking ($1/hour) directly behind café it’s easy to get to. It’s got a very relaxed atmosphere, is smaller in size, and isn’t the ‘kid hub’ that the Clarence Park location but is a lovely place. While they do have a small basket of ‘kid stuff’ this is the place you’d be better off going if you’re after a ‘nice mum and daughter coffee and cake date’ (or if you manage to score a half hour alone for a great coffee in peace!). As always, the coffee is awesome, there are some great food options (like delicious bagels and salads) and the people are cool. Both locations also sell bags of coffee beans to make your own at home too 🙂
No matter the reason for visiting, be sure to check Carnevale Coffee Roasters out – with or without the kids – they are certainly a fave in our household!
