Eventually, watching our darling children run around the playground loses its lustre. Pick one of these playgrounds with good coffee close by to stay awake.

Matchstick Coffee & Robson Park

This popular local spot it regularly voted one of the best coffee places in the city. This location has a playground around the corner in Robson Park with good swings.

Blow the cobwebs out between your ears with one of their wicked-strong espressos, and vibrate gently while your kids run up and down the hill in Hinge Park.

Platform 7 Coffee & Pandora Park

The impressive interior makes you feel as if you’re in a train station, except that the coffee is startlingly good, plus many gluten-free baked goods. Pandora Park is a short walk away.

Renzo’s Cafe & Grandview Park

Good Italian coffee here, and steps from the awesome playground at Grandview Park. Staff sometimes focused more on looking cool than making coffee quickly.
