Green Genes Wellness Centre – Craighall Park

This is the perfect spot for moms on the go! If you are looking to have a little time to yourself, make a stop at the Green Genes Wellness Centre. You can socialise over a cup of coffee at the café and catch up with friends, get some work done and check your emails, take a gym class or even attend a workshop while the kids play safely in the play area nearby. And you don’t need to keep your eye on them constantly as there are professional childminders on hand at all times.

The Oak Leaf  Sandhurst

For a break away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, find tranquillity at this country-like spot in Sandhurst. While you socialise with the ladies, kids can play in the supervised play area with a full-time childminder. There’s lots for the kids to do to blow off some steam, from jumping on the jumping castle to climbing the jungle gym and racing round the race track!

Yeesh!  Bryanston

Sometimes parents need a time-out to relax, rejuvenate and hang out with other grownups. Yeesh! is the perfect spot to keep the little ones busy while you catch up on the latest gossip over a slice of cake and a cup of coffee. The coffee bar has freshly ground coffee and a great range of teas to choose from. There are also freshly baked cakes, muffins and scones, and snacks if you’re feeling a bit peckish.

Silver Birch Restaurant – Randpark Ridge

This is one of my favourite places to have a relaxing afternoon with a book and a good cup of tea. Parents can spend some quality time together over lunch while the kids head down to the kids’ play area. They also have a children’s menu to choose from in order to get the kids fed and pizza making to keep them entertained while you sip on a cup of coffee in peace.

Charlie Brown’s  Fourways

Take in the spring weather and tranquillity out at Charlie Brown’s. Escape the rush of the city and take advantage of their outdoor pool area as you take a well-deserved break from being mom. Pick an item from their delicious menu while the kids play outside in the supervised play area. There are many activities to keep them entertained, from jumping castles and the bike track to the jungle gyms and trampolines.

Junipa’s – Sandton

Sweet treats and great coffee, this is the perfect stop if you are looking for a break from your busy day. And for the kids, let them bring out their inner chef and creativity by letting them create their own pizzas from a selection of different toppings which will be baked in the oven. Fun and fed in one activity!

Villa San Giovanni  Pretoria

Why not arrange a lunch out with friends at Villa San Giovanni? They have a wonderful selection of Italian food to tuck into while catching up on the latest news and gossip. And, while the mommies talk, kids can play in the play area, the games room or head to the mini pizzeria where they can make their own pizzas.

Col’Cacchio  Fairlands

Looking for a great spot to have lunch with family and friends? Col’Cacchio offers the best pizzas I have ever tasted, and best of all, the kids will be kept busy in the play area supervised by childminders. And, they offer weekend activities such as face painting, a magician and a jumping castle.
