Burnedale, a lovely child friendly spot for coffee, a meal or a browse

Burnedale Burnedale under 5 play area Burnedale play area

9 times out of 10 when I love a restaurant it is because it has an outdoor eating area.  On a beautiful day it seems sacrilegious to be cooped up indoors.   Malls and restaurants which overlook a parking lot do nothing for me.   My children are always with me which makes a good play area very appealing.  Last week while visiting my family in Umdloti my Sister In Law suggested a visit to Burnedale with my Mum and our children.   We enjoyed our lunch in the shade (in my case a naughty waffle) then browsed the tasteful shops.

Burnedale pottery

I did some serious coveting at the pottery shop,  the hand painted pottery is expensive, for example a dinner plate is R185 but a piece would make a special gift for someone.  It is a great place to look for a 9th anniversary gift (that gift theme is pottery).  If any friends or family are reading this my birthday is 1st July and I particularly loved the Dragonfly coffee mugs 🙂

A few days later when meeting my Dad for coffee we returned to Burnedale, high praise to visit the same place twice during an all too short week.

Notes :  Burnedale is in Umhlali, very close to Ballito and Salt Rock.  Children under 5 have a separate supervised play area which costs R10 for unlimited time on the day.
