133 Oxford Street,
(Just behind Green Grass Home and Body on the corner facing the park)
If you are looking to fill some time on a gorgeous sunny day these school holidays, you should check out Park Bench Espresso Bar at Bulimba. Very cool and casual, and a perfect child friendly stop either before or after a play at the fab park on the trendy Bulimba strip.
After that, we ducked into Green Grass (a divine home and body gift store - same owner as Park Bench), which was a bit tricky with kids in tow. But if you only have one child with you or you have a morning to yourself, it is worth a browse. I bought gorgeous stripey red drinking straws for Christmas parties (144 straws for $9.95 - bargain!), spotted cupcake wrappers (24 for $5 - also cheap), and little ice cream cups with cute spoons, great for kids desserts for events such as the neighbourhood Christmas party (the less washing up the better). The Christmas decorations in there were adorable and I could have spent so much more time and money in there, without the children. So I will be doing a trip back there soon.
Highly recommend Park Bench Espresso and the Bulimba park on Oxford Street as a child friendly outing these school holidays.
