Papachinos probably has one of the best play areas for kiddies. They have now opened their playgrounds, so you can take the kids this weekend for a delicious meal and some fun playtime. They have assured customers that very strict hygiene protocols are being put in place to keep little ones safe. Another cute safety measure they have put in place is hula hoops on the ground in the play areas to ensure kids understand social distancing.
Entrance is free
