Flinderz Hillarys – Flinderz is a suburban gem and if you’re not a local, chances are you’ve never heard of it. Flinderz is in Hillarys, but it isn’t found at the Boat Harbour. The modern café is located at the leafy Hillary’s Shopping Centre on Finders Avenue.
Flinderz is a light and bright café, with seating inside and also in the shady alfresco area, where we always like to dine.
The inviting café is a good spot for a family brunch or mothers group get together. There’s good coffee, tasty food, which includes a well-priced kids menu and entertainment for the kids – in the form of a kids corner and a few mini iPads too!
The kid’s play corner is fenced and gated and is fantastic for keeping busy toddlers and pre-schoolers busy. There’s loads of toys and a big play kitchen and dollhouse too.
There’s a good choice of drinks – coffee, tea, smoothies and more. We’ve always found them to have quality coffee. Little Chef ordered his brunch favourite – a babycino.
Since I last visited there’s been some interesting new additions to the Flinderz brunch menu. I really liked the sound of their house smoked Atlantic salmon and the French toast, but opted for my favourite House made granola, $17. When the food arrived it looked really delicious and my granola tasted great too – the honeyed oats and seeds are toasted and served with dried fruits with a whibbly wobbly yogurt panna cotta sitting in the middle of the bowl, along with a fruit coulis. I drown this pretty brekkie in milk, it’s just as tasty as I remember.
Chef really enjoyed his eggs Benedict, $19. A fluffy house made English muffin is topped with honey baked ham, spinach and perfectly poached eggs, all coated in creamy hollandaise.
The kids meals are incredibly good value at $6 each. For brekkie there’s French toast, scrambled eggs on toast, ham and cheese toasty and pancakes. For lunch there’s kid’s steak, fish n chips, lightly fried chicken and chips and a burger. Little Chef said his fluffy pancakes were really yummy and loved them being served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream too.
Flinderz has high chairs available. The toilets are located outside the café, next to Coles (being at a shopping centre) and they are very clean and have baby changing facilities. Most areas of the café are easily navigated with a pram too.
Flinderz Hillarys is open for breakfast, brunch, lunch and coffee n cake. It’s a good spot for a catch up with little kids in tow.
If you’re looking for something else to do in the area with kids there is a great playground at Mawson Park which is also on Flinders Avenue.
