For family gatherings, playdates or an afternoon when you’ve been tasked to babysit your niece or nephew, these kid-friendly restaurants have it all sorted so that you can savour your meal in absolute peace.
Let’s be honest, bringing little ones out for meals can be a daunting task. It requires careful research and planning, and the reasons are simple: It is difficult for kids to sit down for hours on end if they aren’t occupied with activities; sometimes restaurants can be too noisy or dimly lit and that scares the younger ones; or perhaps, more importantly, not all restaurants have kid-friendly food options.
So, if you’re hunting for a place to visit with the family over the weekend or planning for a playdate, here are our picks for kid-friendly restaurants that serve up scrumptious meals with a side of fun for kids.

Why you should visit The Pantry:
- Has a massive outdoor playground
- Menu features healthy alternatives with plenty of vegetable options
Just a stone’s throw away from the main Orchard Road belt is where you will find The Pantry. While it offers a menu decked out with healthy alternatives and plenty of vegetable options, the main draw of this place has to be its massive outdoor playground. Fashioned like a treehouse of your child’s wildest dreams, it’s fully equipped with bridges, swings, fireman’s pole and even a mini obstacle course for hours of climbing fun.
For those aged five or below, there’s an indoor soft play area complete with a slide and a stage. This smaller play area is conveniently nestled within the restaurant’s dining space, the better for you to keep your children within sight.
Note: In keeping with safe distancing guidelines, The Pantry has imposed a limit to the number of children allowed at the playground at any one time. To ensure that the little ones get some playtime, we recommend that you make a playground reservation for them prior to visiting.

Oh, and did we mention that they are also a pet-friendly restaurant? You’re welcome.

Why you should visit Tiong Bahru Bakery Safari:
- Safari-themed restaurant with an outdoor playground
- Healthier food options disguised as colourful dishes
How does a croissant, kouign amann and maybe a warm cuppa Joe on a Saturday afternoon sound like to you? Well, you can savour all of that while the little one goes off to explore the large outdoor playground and greenery (think 3,000 square feet of edible plant garden) surrounding Tiong Bahru Bakery Safari. Unlike most of the restaurants on this list, there isn’t a specific kids menu here. However, with the wide range of sandwiches, viennoiseries, oat jars and cakes available, we doubt that you’ll face any trouble finding something delicious that your child will enjoy as well.

A bouncy castle, colouring sheets and a large open space to run about, what’s not to love about Café Melba? Its kids set menu features eight different options that range from breakfast favourites to burgers, pastas and even pan-seared fish and chips. For adults, they serve up classic brunch fare, light bites, sandwiches, burgers, stews, pizzas, calzones and a wide range of freshly baked cakes.

Why you should visit Morganfield’s:
- Kids meals are priced at S$9.90 for a main dish, French fries and apple juice
- On weekends and public holidays, kids below eight enjoy a free meal with every main course ordered (maximum two redemptions per table).
If meat is what you’re craving for, especially pork ribs, then you’ll want to pay a visit to Morganfield’s. No fuss and no frills, this is your all-American diner that offers perfectly slow-cooked and smoked meats in generous amounts.
They may be known for their pork ribs, but you won’t find them on the kids menu as Morganfield’s tries to offer easy-to-eat boneless options like hotdogs, grilled chicken tenders and fish fingers. So, if you’re intending to let the little one try their famous pork ribs, we suggest that you either order a full slab to share, or a sharing platter that will comfortably feed up to three people.

There isn’t a dedicated kids menu here, but with the many delicious, kid-friendly choices available, you and your children likely won’t need one. Besides, they’re probably going to be more interested in the large playground on the premises, and life-sized cow models that also serve as a fun visual guide to where the different cuts of beef come from.
