KID friendly is the best way to describe Picnic on Toorak Rd in South Yarra. Kids everywhere, fussed over by staff, sipping baby chinos and being adored by parents and friends.
Yes, to meet the mum with a toddler, Picnic is the place. They supply cute little wooden chairs that sit over a regular chair so you can strap the munchkin in and safely tuck into a latte.
Brekky is good. Quality, moist bircher was served with a miniature bottle of milk. Very cute.
Eggs benedict with roasted tomato was deemed decent. They didn't overdo the hollandaise sauce which is a plus, according to my husband, who reckons he's an eggs benedict connoisseur.
Our dining partners, locals on first name terms with the owners, ordered their favourite, Tuscan eggs. It's like bruschetta with poached eggs, avocado and tomato and onion salsa heaped on top. Looks healthy and tastes sublime, my dining partner and the mum of the group said.
Staff are kid friendly, happily chatting in baby talk and patting little heads as they whirl past.
And you heard it here first, Picnic is expanding with another opening in Blessington St Kilda and doing it for the kids bayside. St Kilda mums will be happy.
Be warned, if you're sick of babies, don't come here.
Breakfast, baby friendly (maybe too much so).
