Weekends means family time! 

After a week of hard work and school, you and your kids just want to take it easy and bond with the family over some activities or a meal together. 

If you have little ones, you would probably want to have a few kid-friendly restaurants or cafes in mind so that the kids would be adequately occupied and entertained as you enjoy your meal. These eateries commonly have a wholesome children’s menu and attractive kid-friendly facilities. 

Here’s a list of kid-friendly cafes and restaurants in Singapore that we think are pretty awesome.
