Why a Weekly Coffee Date With Friends Is Good for a Stay At Home Parent

Perth has a strong claim to being Australia’s coffee capital. We enjoy few indulgences more than settling into a comfy chair at our favourite coffee shop to take a half-hour break.

For stay-at-home parents, grabbing coffee with a friend at Geláre is about more than a caffeinated pick-me-up.

So if you’re thinking of meeting a friend at your favourite Perth breakfast place, we wholeheartedly support the idea for several reasons.

Overcome isolation

Research suggests that social isolation affects stay-at-home parents at the best of times. Unfortunately, two years of lockdowns and social distancing have only added to the potential for parents to feel disconnected from their adult friends.

Spending a little quality time at a Perth coffee shop can help parents de-stress and feel socially supported.

Play date for the kids

Coffee dates with friends are also an excellent opportunity for kids to meet, play and expend some of their seemingly endless energy.

After meeting for breakfast in South Perth, take the kids down to the foreshore. The area is great for kids, dogs and parents to get some exercise and enjoy the sunshine.

And don’t worry about fussy eaters. Geláre has plenty of breakfast options for kids, plus delicious coffee options for parents.

Catch up in a COVID-safe environment

We understand that parents might be nervous about venturing out into Perth’s busy breakfast places.

So if you’re not ready to sit down for breakfast, grab a takeaway coffee (and ice cream) and take a walk in the sunshine.

Fresh air, exercise, and specialty Melbourne-roasted coffee from one of Perth’s best coffee shops is the ultimate combination for a refreshing catch-up.

Take a well-earned break

Stay at home parenting is one of the most demanding jobs anyone can do. It’s also incredibly rewarding, but nobody will argue that you need to give yourself a break every now and then.

Visiting a Perth coffee shop with a friend is a great way to switch off just for a moment. Our convenient South Perth location means you can easily meet someone from the other side of the river and run errands while you’re in the area.

Or you can just take a break.

Kick back, order your favourite waffles and catch up with an old friend.

We’ve spent a long time developing our coffee blend, and we want you to spend a long time enjoying it.

Relax and recharge at Geláre, Perth’s iconic coffee and ice cream shop

Geláre has been a favourite South Perth breakfast place for years.

Bring the kids or pop in after dropping them at daycare to enjoy our breakfast options, delicious barista-made coffee and Perth’s favourite ice cream.

There is no better place to catch up with friends, family or yourself.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you the next time you need to relax, recharge and rediscover the joys of taking a well-earned coffee break.
