What better way than to enjoy a Sunday morning than with a beach view, coffee and a play with the kids. Cafe De la Plage is located at Casuarina Beach right near the Surf life saving club area (Darribah Road, Brinkin).  Such a casual relaxed set up with loads of tables, hammocks, seating and rugs available to use plus its right beach side but also on the shady lawns.

This Sunday morning it was quite busy as the kids surf life saving groups were training and obviously lots of parents and families come down. to watch along with lots of weekend diners enjoying our beautiful dry season weather.

The Cafe De la plage is a relaxed cafe that is very family friendly (and dog friendly too!). Out on the lawns and beach front are bean bags and rugs spread out under shade for families and diners to enjoy. There are also tables and chairs scattered around too.

We enjoyed the scenery and the kids burnt some energy running along the beach and making sandcastles. Why not head out this afternoon or this week and enjoy Darwin’s weather plus their great family friendly cafe. Plus right next to the cafe area is a big grassy lawns area to picnic or BBQ in, plus a small kids playground.

If you are looking for other family friendly dining options check out the Foreshore Cafe in Nightcliff, Eva’s Cafe in the Darwin Botanic Gardens or any of the places in our Kids Eat Free blog.
