I honestly can’t remember a time when I have been more impressed with a kids' menu. Passionate about pizza, fresh SA produce, and delivering a quality value offering and experience to families, we couldn’t rave more about our meal with the kids at Doughballs, Moseley Square Glenelg.

Set smack bang in the heart of the square, we were toasty warm upstairs on the balcony, which was heated and enclosed for winter. I can only imagine that this prime position will be a popular breezy, balmy delight in summer. The views set the perfect backdrop, although I must admit the kids were torn and drawn to the bright and colourful ‘beach hut style’ booths in the restaurant. Doughballs also has downstairs alfresco seating, (complete with heater and blankets, or umbrellas for the sunnier months), a great option if you have strollers or kids that like some time on their feet when you are out and about.

Like many parents, owners Catriona and Lincoln felt they could rarely find a meal out that properly catered for the family market, and let me tell you, they certainly have nailed a casual dining experience that has some amazing offerings for kids all at a really affordable price. Example; they currently have a kids three-course deal with a drink and a babyccino for just ten bucks. The kicker? It includes fresh healthy food options + pizza + your kids are going to LOVE the doughballs and well dessert, goes without saying.

Beyond the awesome kid's menu, we enjoyed fabulous pizzas for the adults and must have eaten our weight in ALL of the doughballs. My favourite was the signature dessert with vanilla, salted caramel, and Nutella, but I also loved the warm doughballs with a pesto dipping bowl starter. See, we really did eat ALL the balls.

The dessert menu is extensive and lavish and there is a notable quality beer and wine offering too.

You can visit for brunch, lunch, or dinner, Friday to Sunday currently.

Doughballs also has an extensive takeaway menu available and we will try that next time for sure. What a spot to wander over to for a bite to eat after a day at the beach or a play on the foreshore playground!
