Governor's Cafe is a cozy little cafe on George St in the student end of town that has been around since 1977 and has always been popular among the students. However don't let that put you off taking the kids. They have a kids playroom upstairs which is awesome and they have the coolest Fluffies that are FREE! This cafe is the perfect location for catching up with friends with kids. They serve Orb coffee and their yummy food is made to order and they happily cater for any dietary requirements. Most menu food is also available in kid's sizes.

We met up with Benji and Tilly's mate Alba one afternoon for a coffee and catch up with her mum and little brother. The three toddlers had such a great time playing in the playroom that we lost track of time and stayed past closing time! 

One of us had a pushchair with us at the cafe. There wasn't much room for storing it in the cafe but the staff were more than happy to have it sitting under the stairs while we enjoyed our coffee upstairs. Something to keep in mind for future visits if wanting to take prams.

The staff were very friendly and accomodating during our visit and made us feel welcome. Upstairs next to the playroom they have a change table located in the toilet that is even equipped with baby wipes! 

This cafe definitely ticks all the boxes for a child friendly cafe. We have already been back since with some other friends and will be frequent visitors here!
