Cuto Kids Cafe, in Marina Square at Wentworth Point, joins a growing list of boutique indoor play centres now in Sydney called Kids Cafes. While they are each similar in a lot of ways, there are also key differences in terms of the customer service, space and specific play items. Of course location will also influence which one you are more likely to visit.
In the lead up to Cuto Kids Cafe opening, they invited us along for a play test and we’re happy to share our initial thoughts with you here. We will update our review once we’ve been back again after their official opening.
SPECIAL: Cuto Kids Cafe are inviting you to play test their new place for FREE this Thursday, Friday and Saturday for 90mins! The ticketed sessions booked out within minutes. But there are a number of walk-in sessions available.
We’ve played at all the kids cafes in Sydney, except the ones in Hurstville. While my kids are 6 and 7yrs, so on the upper end of who they are for, they both really love playing at the kids cafes still. And they’ve decided that Cuto Kids Cafe is their new favourite!
The ice cream van was a BIG hit as well as the ball pit with target games on the wall, trampoline, construction room and tent.
I love the natural light and openness (thanks to the wrap around windows), the high number of tables, fenced off area for babies/ toddlers, cute interactive wall boards and the lights.
But what struck me the most was the strong desire of the owners to connect with, and build a sense of, community and the time and love they’ve invested into making Cuto. Plus there keenness for feedback and to improve what they’re offering. Well done Gibson, Nicole, Michael and Kelly and your team.
There’s a good mix of the usual favourites on the menu at Cuto.
Keep in mind that they don’t have a dedicated full kitchen like some of the other kids cafes, due to space limitations.
There are no dedicated party rooms at Cuto. Instead, you can hire the whole venue or the special party table.
There are no toilets within Cuto, but there are nice ones just outside in the Marina Square Shopping Centre. There is though a hand washing station. At the entrance, there’s pram parking and shelves to store your shoes.
Entry Fees and Opening Hours
Cuto Kids Cafe will be open on daily. On Monday to Thursday, they’ll be open from 9am to 6pm and then on Friday to Sunday from 9am to 7pm.
Here are the entry fees from Sunday 29th November, remembering that there’s free entry for their opening from 26th to 28th November. We really like that the starting entry is for 90mins – an hour just never seems long enough!
Finding Cuto Kids Cafe
You’ll find Cuto in the Marina Square Shopping Centre at Wentworth Point. It’s on the ground level at the Footbridge Boulvard entrance, just opposite the Wentworth Point Library. There is LOTS of on-site parking, which is free for the first three hours. Cuto is also a very short walk from the Sydney Olympic Park ferry wharf and a short bus trip or walk over Bennelong Bridge from Rhodes.
