Especially For the Kids…..
The highlight for my two children was exploring the gardens and outside beach area. They loved first walking through the winding cafe then discovering the wider gardens and space. They went searching for all the different fruits and veggies they could see growing on the numerous plants and trees. They also enjoyed looking at the superyachts and climbing on the large anchors in the gardens. It really is a lovely spot for adults and kids.
Individual kids menu with breakfast and lunch options. See photo gallery.
Wait there’s more
Kokomo is definitely kid friendly but it is also pet friendly, so if you are looking for a cafe destination with your fur baby, look no further.

First I want to apologise if my boating terminology is incorrect!
We were catching up with friends and decided at the last moment to meet up at a local cafe for a late breakfast. We were in transit so I pulled over and referred to trusty Google to search Cafes near me. When I did, Kokomo Kitchen + Bar came up. I had heard mention of Kokomo from some other local Mum’s as a place to visit with or without the kids. Our destination was chosen.
Now, even with the assistance of Google Maps, I found it difficult to find Kokomo within The Boatworks Coomera. It really is a hidden gem and also because I second guessed Google when it told me to turn towards the water where many boats were dry docked and standing tall on stands. Well, as usual I shouldn’t have second guessed the mighty Google as Kokomo’s car park is set among these very boats. If it helps they are located in the North yard adjacent to the Superyacht basin (J -Arm).
It is a beautiful spot with a secluded tropical feel. There are many usual features that will fascinate the children including a trawler style boat on one side of the main dining area, being surrounded by lush greenery and gardens at every table, the grassy spot with the Kokomo sign and beach area overlooking the Superyacht Basin along the Coomera River.
The children loved exploring the gardens and trying to find the growing fruits and vegetables, playing in the sand, and climbing on the large anchors overlooking the superyachts.
The breakfast menu had lots of options and there is also a separate kids menu. The whole table was happy with their chosen meals and we had a lovely group breakfast.
On our next visit, I would consider bringing a picnic blanket and sand toys so I could enjoy a coffee in the sunshine whilst the kids play.
