It is completely for the comfort of families so you don’t have to worry about annoying the other patrons and it is also an educating experience for your children. The toys are cleaned and sanitised regularly and are changed up routinely.
The menu has also been prepared to cater to children of all ages. They use local and fresh ingredients and ethically traded coffee for the adults. They offer baby led weaning options as well so it is a welcome break from packing a lunch box. The food is traditional cafe style with baked goods and ‘tapas’ style food for the kids. They also provide high chairs, bumbos and bouncers so it makes eating for you a little bit easier as well.
Apple Tree is opposite Brockwell Park so is also the perfect place to either stay and play or pick up a takeaway coffee or food and sit on a blanket in the sunshine in the park. When it doesn’t rain of course!

Just take note that Apple Tree is really popular and can get quite busy at peak periods. Like a lot of play cafes it can get loud but as Mums we have to be tolerant of that.
