You know it must be a great cafe when you have trouble deciding what to order as everything sounds so yummy. And from my experience today, the food tastes as delicious as it sounds! The new Bells Road Social cafe officially opened 6th December but we got a special sneak peak!
The new cafe is filled with natural light and has a view out to Fred Robertson Reserve. The decor is a lovely blend of new and old, with rustic and chic elements. And if your kids aren’t in the mood for sitting, you can order, grab a picnic rug and your food will be brought over to you in the playground. Now that is some serious family friendliness right there!
But the winning feature is definitely the food! My Chicken and Chorizo Salad and my friends Lamb Kofta were so delicious and full of flavour.
They have a kids breakfast and lunch menu. Unfortunately our kids went with a bowl of hot chips rather than trying something off their menu – but the chips were yummy. I look forward to working my way through the menu!
Owners Melissa and Dan were behind the very successful Long Shot cafe in Beecroft (right near the fab train playground) and are now bringing their fresh style, friendly service and yummy food to Oatlands….yay for us!
There is a mix of seating styles from stools to tables and there is also a waiting bench for take away coffees. My favourite spot is the little balcony area on the side, overlooking the park.
There are high chairs as well as colouring pencils and paper for the kids. Plus room for prams, but it would be a bit tight when busy. And there are two toilets.
Fingers crossed, you will soon also find a street library installed out the front…watch this space!

Finding the Bells Road Social Cafe
You will find this great new cafe at 1 Bells Road in Oatlands. And the beauty of being located in the leafy suburb of Oatlands is that it is peaceful.
The Bells Road Social is on the corner of a strip of shops and across a small lane from the playground at Fred Robertson Reserve. There is street parking or it is short walk from a bus stop on Kissing Point Road.
