Footscray's Happy River Cafe
is just wonderful. The place itself is quite small, so you could crowd in there in inclement weather. Dunno - never tried. I've only been there on sunny days when you get your patch of lawn, or a rug, and a 1ft cube or three to eat from. Lots of families. Lots of bikes. Great food and coffee.
It's just off Maribyrnong trail, within spitting distance (well, almost) of Shepherd's Bridge.
Also, St Ali North is due to open in the next few weeks, according to the FB chatter.The List
