Botany | Family Staycation for City Holiday

Botany | Family Staycation

There’s so much to love at this riverside cafe.

Firstly, the menu, which is 95 per cent MSG- and preservative-free and which offers the best of East and West — so grandma can have her congee while the teen chows down on avocado toast.

In addition, there are two kids play areas, one indoors and one outdoors, to keep younger ones occupied.

Bring Baby too; space is stroller (and wheelchair-friendly) and the staff will set up the diaper changing table if you need it.
