Mr Pilgrim, as always a crowded noisy café with bundles of yummy sweet treats and good coffee.
Not sure about kids friendly or not, but they do have an outside area where you can sit with the prams plus fresh air, in case, actually, in fact, kids mostly are not a fan of staying inside the venue.
Honestly, Mr Pilgrim is quite a busy environment and kiddos always find hard to settle in this type of vibe.
It is definitely not a place for little ones to wander around with too many sharp corners and narrow spaces between the seating.
Therefore, I would recommend you to do take away if you aren’t sure how much time you got till the next tantrum.
However, it is always one of my usual spots to get take away coffee when I’m in Chadstone, or if I want to sit in for a bit of sweets. If just by myself or with my friends, get their little baked cheesecake, tart or meringues is my signature move. They do have a quite attractive menu with a pretty fancy price tag, I have not tried them all but at least I can say you will get the price match quantity if not the quality. And their big breakfast and burger for lunch are worth trying.
Anyway, this is my thought so far today, and hope it can entertain you for a bit in all your busy day.
