I recently discovered this place last week while searching the internet for new places to take the kids for lunch.

Behold I find this amazing coffee bar thinking it's brand new because I haven't heard about it before. Well, I was wrong... it has been open for four years!
It's run by and located behind the Victory Church via a side entrance at 5 Maxwell Road, Pooraka, just a hop skip and a jump from Mawson Lakes.
Apart from having a FREE playground that's the equivalent size to a play cafe, the food is awesome.
It's modern, fresh and open with the playground being in its own separate room. With a well priced menu, they offer all day premium breakfasts and goodies such as bruschetta, focaccias, waffles, in-house daily made muffins and wagu beef burgers, which are welcomed to break up the monotonous norm of nuggets and chips.
In saying that though, the girls decided to order their 'norm' of a hot dog and chips. WOW! They are huge! And they aren't the red skinned franks nor the brown Wendy's dog, they're premium smallgoods with fresh bakery rolls. I ordered the turkey, cranberry and swiss cheese toasted focaccia which was fresh, soft and of course, healthy.
The only downside is that it's only open Monday -Saturday 9am-3pm, which means no after school treats, but if you have a little one or want a Saturday breakfast/brunch/lunch, it's perfect. They also offer children's parties.
Here are those details again:
