Slate Cafe Bennett Springs is an amazing family friendly cafe in our beautiful Swan Valley, that is all kids of awesomenss with two kids play areas, lots of grassed area to run around and a Sunday session vibe you can enjoy all week long.
While Slate Cafe is an amazing place to enjoy while in the Swan Valley during the warmer months, you can also see how it will be great during winter too. It's mostly built with re-purposed sea containers and the openings are all set up with awnings so they can be enclosed in winter. This includes the container which houses the kids "indoor play area".
Inside the play area are role play toys, a black board, ride on toys that can be taken out onto the lawn and kids can also slide down from the play area onto the grass and run back up the ramp for some more play time too. This is a great way for kids to enjoy some play time out of the sun but still get fresh air all year round - we absolutely love this set up!
Outside there is a big grassed area and a nature play area
And if you are a fur family there is a fenced dog playground (please note: the dog playground was mulched after we visited and they plan to install nicer seating and shade in the dog playground in the near future). Dogs must be kept on the lead at all times except when in the fenced do playground.
The food is excpetional and you can enjoy anything from a large meal to just a coffee and cake. You can find the menu on their facebook (link below) and there is always lots to choose from in the front display cabinet. The menu includes kids meals with three options, nuggest and chips, fish and chips and chicken wings and coleslaw - all $8 each.

You will love dining out on the deck overlooking the grassed area. They have music playing in the background which adds to the Sunday session vibe this place has. We love the little touches too like the sunscreen hanging up around the place, shows that the family that have put Slate Cafe together have really thought of everything.
Slate Cafe is open daily from 7am-4pm during the week and 8am-4pm on the weekends and is a must if you are in the Swan Valley whether it be for somewhere to eat or just to grab a coffee, with kids, without kids, or with the family dog - we are sure you will love it and be back again and again.
