Best kids eats in Perth City
When heading into the city with the kids, most people think they have to resort to fast food or food halls, but if you look around there are plenty of options with a wide range of cuisines. Here’s my Top 10 places to eat with kids in Perth.
When I talk to parents, Jamie’s Italian is the most frequently recommended family friendly restaurant.
With 3D versions of each kid’s meal on the view finders, little ones will have fun picking what they want to eat.
With options like a Picnic Box, Chicken Lollipops and Mini Spaghetti & Meatballs (with 7 hidden veggies in the sauce!) everyone will be happy.
Location: 140 William St, Perth
Ribs and Burgers
As the name suggests, this is one for the meat lovers. Get messy at Ribs and Burgers with the junior pork riblets, a generous serve of ribs with chips.
Not a rib lover? The kids menu also features a choice of beef or chicken sliders.
Location: 24/140 William St, Perth
Northbridge Brewing Co
Traditional ‘pub grub’ for the kids can be found at Northbridge Brewing Company, next to the Northbridge Piazza. Fish and chips, steak and chips, spaghetti and pizza are some of the options on the kids menu. They also have kids activity packs to keep young ones happy while waiting for the food.
Location: 44 Lake St, Northbridge
If you have older kids, they will love heading down the alleyway to Toastface Grillah.
Located in Grand Lane, most people walk past the small lane entrance off the Murray Street Mall, but this hidden gem is well worth a visit.
My kids love the Get Yo’ Veg (vegemite and cheese) and the Ham and Cheese.
Location: Grand Lane, Perth
Located in Travelodge Perth and only one block from the Perth Mint, Armada
Kids get an activity pack on arrival and have choices like Sizzling Sausages, Funky Fish and Pizza Party. There is lots of room if you have a pram and the free Red Cat bus stops right in front of the restaurant.
Location: 417 Hay Street, Perth
There are three locations for Jaws Sushi trains around the city for those with little sushi lovers. The best thing about sushi trains?
No waiting around for food to be cooked! It is all ready and waiting for you to pick off the train!
Locations: Equus Arcade, 580 Hay St, Perth & 726 Hay St, Perth & 323 Hay St, East Perth
Pancakes at Carillon
I remember going to Pancakes at Carillon when I was little, and now I take my kids.
There are breakfast and lunch options with crepes, burgers, nuggets and of course, pancakes!
We love a Strawberry Volcano after seeing a show at Perth Arena, before jumping back on the train to go home.
Location: Level 3 Carillon City, Hay Street Mall, Perth

Though there isn’t a kids menu here, it’s still a great experience to have with the kids.
They can watch through the window as the noodles are made fresh each day, then head inside and enjoy those noodles.
It’s a very small location in the Equus Retail Arcade with no room for prams or highchairs, but my three year old cannot get enough of those noodles! Crispy Chicken Noodles minus the spicy sauce is his pick.
Location: Equus Arcade, 580 Hay St, Perth
Grill’d Burgers in Shafto Lane is our dinner choice when heading to Perth Arena or His Majesty’s Theatre for a show.
Kids packs come with a choice of a beef or chicken burger, chips, water or juice and a puzzle. There is also a Grill’d in Brookfield Place.
Location: Shafto Lane, 401 Murray St, Perth
I also reached out to my mummy blogger community for their favourite family-friendly spots:
Adelphi Grill is the place to go for Mummy Motivation:
“Adelphi Grill is often our go-to restaurant in the city when heading out with the kids. Having three fidgety little boys, we tend to always get the ‘oh no, they have kids’ look when we walk into fancier restaurants. At Adelphi’s, we can enjoy a nice night out and not feel like an imposition.
Apart from a special kids menu, which has seriously delicious chicken tenders, they offer a number of tapas options which are great for small eaters.
So if you are looking for fancy night out to celebrate but can’t get a babysitter, AdelphiGrill is definitely the place to go.”
Hog’s Breath Cafe is where The Brooks Girls Adventures head:
“We don’t go out a lot but when we do, we usually go to Hog’s Breath. The food is great, it’s affordable and it’s a great family restaurant.”
@marleypaige88 Annalakshmi is the best spot with kids:
“When my partner and I take our three and a half year old into the city, we dine at Annalaskshmi in Barrack Square. This restaurant operates on a ‘pay as you feel’ principle, which is a unique all-you-can-eat buffet.
Great for families on a budget, the food is a delicious vegetarian cuisine.
There’s a ferry close by on Barrack St Jetty, so after a meal it’s a nice novelty to have a short cruise across the river where a playground awaits.”
