Coffee Shop
$$
“Really cool atmosphere, and is perfect for brunch or lunch, with a separate playroom at the back for kids. Have a coffee with the knowledge that your little ones have plenty to amuse themselves with, plus there are good baby changing facilities. There is also a small garden/courtyard out the back with some tables.”
