There are two locations – Stoke Newington and Clerkenwell. The kids menu is healthy, with meals that they won’t turn their nose up at, such as Salmon Fishfingers, Roast Vegetable Pasta and Fried Chicken with a Healthy Green Slaw. And, if they’ve behaved especially well there is a kid’s cocktail menu that includes both healthy and slightly more indulgent treats. However if they aren’t being little angels, there is also a great cocktail list for the adults too!

They offer activities for the children (including a play area) and delicious home-made food. It’s slightly more expensive than most cafes, but that is to be expected in its West London location. If you’re in the area, check it out.
