Today we spent a rainy cold Saturday frolicking at one of our favorite family friendly (and very hip) cafes in New York City, Moomah. I wanted to give you a peak back to last summer, and one of our outings to this magical space. It is a cafe designed for families, where good food is served in a stylish family atmosphere, and you can do crafts with your kids while you eat, or just take in the amazing space.  It is located in the neighborhood of Tribeca, an old industrial neighborhood of lower Manhattan, most of the buildings have been turned into fancy shops and condos now,  getting there is half the fun walking around the old streets.

The minute you enter Moomah there is so much to look at, 

The space is calming, serene, and the art on the walls is beautiful and inspiring, 

These are some of the craft projects that you can pick from to make together (my kids made the place mats), 

Or just coloring on their beautiful coloring pages is fun too,

The large back room is an interactive video installation for the kids, with pillows all around, sometimes they offer kids yoga classes in this room. It is a video forest that the children can help "water" and watch it grow up the walls as it moves with them. Sort of hard to describe but totally amazing and perfect for a rainy day, where the kids can run around!

I'm even in love with the chair in the bathroom at Moomah, isn't that coral fabric stunning!? This place is not to be missed if you are visiting New York with kids!
Happy Weekending to you!

I know, NYC is really cool Rebekah! Always something to do at every turn, sometimes it can be a little too much, but it is always exciting!!

Wow what a great place! Your blog is fantastic and when I read it it takes me out of little old Adelaide (Australia) to NY for just a moment. Thank you for sharing - it adds a bit of sparkle to my day! Would love to take my son to Moomah - he would love the back room!

what an amazing and inspiring place! Such a great idea to have so much creative inspiration and arty things to do whilst eating out. I wish they had something like that here in London (or at least if they do, I don't know about it!) I am hoping to come to New York and will put this down as a place to visit :) Thanks.
