Kim and Karla's Best Bites...

Kim Sia and Karla Barrett

Local mums Kim and Karla love cafés and restaurants with good food, coffee, ambience and most importantly a kid-friendly atmosphere. 

Some of their favourites include Ora for great coffee, Kuche for delicious selection of food (both in Kew East), District Pho (Deepdene) for a quick Vietnamese pho, Our Little Secret (Camberwell) for weekend get-togethers, and Centonove (Kew) for a special night out.

We love to go to places within walking distance from home or school and luckily there are several to choose from. We also like to try new places in neighbouring suburbs, said Kim.
