I don’t know what to love most about Peace + Riot: the decor, the menu, the fact it becomes a restaurant at night or the childcare (and let’s be real, it’s obviously the childcare).
Yellow Warbler doesn’t claim to be a play cafe – it’s simply a lovely coffee shop that just so happens to have a kids’ area.
This month, meet Paddington Bear at the British Library, ride dodgems at Somerset House and scribble all over the floor at Tate Modern.
Bella Boos is the only soft play I’ve ever been to that’s reminded me of going clubbing.
I have a (probably fairly unhealthy) fixation with play cafes and am always embarrassingly pumped when I hear about a new one popping up somewhere useful.
I’ve never quite managed to find a public soft-play centre in London that doesn’t make me want to kill myself… until now.
This month, absorb some Christmassy magic with festive theatre, spellbinding light installations, seasonal markets and Father Christmas-infused fun.
The Moustache has a distinctly grown-up feel – it just happens to cater to grown ups who have children. And frankly, that’s the best kind of cafe I can think of.
This could so easily have been just another generic soft-play centre, but the owners have clearly put a lot of thought into making it stand out from the crowd.
I always feel slightly uncomfortable about members’ clubs and their keeping-out-the-riffraff vibes, so this felt like a nice, inclusive alternative.
