Your Front Room Just got Bigger....
We wanted a place where the children could be children and that's why you won't find any unaccompanied adults here.
We wanted a place where the children ate well, that's why all of our ingredients are locally sourced, then freshly prepared to order… no pre-packaged foods here, the only thing in our freezer is the ice cream.
We wanted a place where the children could play in a safe and stimulating environment… that's why you won't find any plastic toys in our space, but plenty of dressing up and books to encourage creative play.
We wanted a place that was as welcoming for the adults as it was for the children. That's why there are no garish primary colours or easy-clean formica surfaces.
We have thought of everything from bibs and bottle warmers to homemade babyblend and mini-portions for under twos.
COME, RELAX and ENJOY .....
That Place on the Corner is a fantastic getaway! My kids love it here and whilst the selection of toys is well loved the welcome and friendly atmosphere is fab! We've been cafe users for nearly 3 years attending great classes now and love it. As for dangerous toys I've never seen any but I did hand in a toy another child had broken and it was swiftly disposed of. They have just been gorgeously repainted and the place looks great. If you want a fantastic cup of coffee in a relaxed and happy atmosphere where your child can dress up as a mermaid or pretend to be an octonaut without getting odd looks this is the place to go. Oh and the bacon sandwiches are to die for!!
This is such a great idea, and the coffee is good etc but I and lots of mums I know, don't go here because some of the toys are so busted they're dangerous looking (metal spikes sticking out of a broken chime toy for example), and the nappy change is rank. It's such a shame, because it's a much needed resource, a fab idea, which needs better execution, and then it would be overrun with us fussy mums.
