Kid Friendly Bakery : Bordertown : South Australia

We had a very quick and brief visit to Bordertown a few weeks back. It wasn't penciled into our jam packed itinerary, but neither was driving from Adelaide to Melbourne at 2pm in the afternoon.

Yes l have two words for you ladies and gents.

Ash cloud.

Yep we were among the hundreds stranded at the airport and we had to make other arrangements to get back to good old Melbourne town. As always we like to see the bright side of things, at least we got to see some more of our beautiful country.

We planned to drive straight through - kids demeanor pending. l don't know if you've ever done it (it's our second time) but it's a long drive filled with overtaking trucks, endless highway and small country towns.

All this considering the kids were great, well better than great. We only had to stop twice. Once for petrol and the second stop was in the small country town of Bordertown. The cafe gods must have been smiling down on us, as the chance place we happened to stop at had all the FUN Hey Bambini Features we LOVE!

The Morning Loaf is a bakery cum cafe situated right in the heart of Bordertown which sits right next to a little park complete with swings and slides for the kids. It's the perfect spot to stretch those car legs and to burn off extra energy. The cafe was a basic country bakery filled with a jumble of vintage furniture and knick knacks while serving all your bakery favourites. Homemade pies, sausage rolls, cakes and buns were on offer. We didn't grab any hot drinks but they did do coffee and other hot beverages.

For tiny bottoms they had a change table, highchair and of course a great little kids corner complete with mini chairs and table and an array of toys for little ones. My Mr 8 months really enjoying stretching out of the "soft fall" mats and have a quick play before we hit the road again.

Listen it probably wasn't the BEST bakery cafe I've been in but the kids had fun with the toys and in the park, which in that case they could of served me cardboard, as long as my kids are happy and they won’t be complaining in the car, l'm happy.

It's a good little bakery cafe to lock away in the memory bank next time you're headed that way. The kids will love it most of all!
