Last week as I was driving back from a play centre, with two very cranky and hungry children in my backseat, I decided to check out Funkateers Pizzeria in Chermside West. I had heard along the Mum grapevine that it was an awesome place to go with families, and turns out the grapevine was well and truly right.
Located on a quiet suburban street in Chermside West, I was greeted with my two young children by a very friendly staff member and quickly taken upstairs to the completely child friendly space.
With a fully fenced play area and a very quirky and fun decor, I felt right at home. Especially when we were also presented with a gift pack with crayons and some colouring paper and activities.
The play area has a tunnel slide, soft bottom, play kitchen and fort. And it is situated right next to all the tables, so you can relax and have a drink and some food in peace while your children play.
Funkateers is fully licensed and have truly epic pizzas. Ours was a huge family sized supreme, and probably one of the best I have ever had. Our children shared a kids pizza which they were really happy with. And because it is fully licensed, my husband and I got to each have a wine/beer and feel like actual adults. The menu also offers a huge range of kids food, pizza, salad and special dietary requirement options. We only had pizza, but I would try their entrees next time as they looked really good.
There was nothing but families upstairs so we felt really comfortable. It has a very ‘groovy’ vibe with lots of colour and plastic chairs and cutlery, as well as plenty of high chair. Downstairs has more seating, baby change facilities and they also serve some very impressive looking gelato.
I would highly recommend Funkateers if you want a peaceful dinner with your family, or even as a great place to meet friends who also have children! There were so many babies/kids running around, you wouldn’t feel like you had to keep them quiet at the table like so many other places.
