Mumma Review 

The Beach Restaurant in Blackmans Bay, is located right across from the beach, the promenade, and just down from the park, so it's ideally located to allow the kids to burn off any excess energy before having to sit still for a minute while mumma enjoys a coffee.  Their coffee is really good too, and is definitely the pick of the take-away options in the vicinity if you're on the run, or off for a stroll.

The Beach has a family friendly vibe, and ticks all the boxes for child friendly features.  There were lots of families having brunch on the Saturday morning that we were there.  I'm told its also a good family option for the early dinner session, however it is a cafe, restaurant, and bar all in one, so it's also a bit of a drinking spot as the evening falls.

The staff were accommodating, and happily swapped our highchair when the first had a broken strap, and helped to set it up.  They also brought out colouring in books and pencils on request, although the 'amazing word find' was a little beyond my 18 month olds capabilities :)

Our food was great, a very satisfying big breakfast for me (well I am eating for two now!).  Hubby enjoyed his regular breakfast favourite from the beach, the breakfast pizza, while my mum and nan each enjoyed the blueberry pancakes and waffles.  My 85 year old nan managed to munch her way through the entire thing.  I've never seen her eat that much in one day, let alone one sitting, so it must have been good!

The Beach could also be a good mum's group option on a quiet afternoon, with a bit of rearranging of tables for the larger group.  For a smaller group the couch area is a comfy option.  

All in all, The Beach Restaurant is certainly a good family friendly option in Blackmans Bay.

  4. Well I do know one mumma who had a beautiful wedding at The Beach... there is a lovely view of the beach and bay from the upstairs function room. Not sure that we managed to spot Pamela Anderson though! :) Kel.


We would love to hear your thoughts :) Love Mumma Al & Mumma Kel xx
