London Cafes with Play Areas or Entertainment

by Sally Foster (follow)
Because sometimes you just want to have a coffee in peace while your children play

I love to meet up with a friend at a cafe to have a catch up and a coffee. This was so much easier when my little boy was a baby. He slept peacefully in the pushchair or craddled lovingly in my arms.

Now, as a busy toddler, keeping him occupied is not as simple, and no matter how many colouring sheets, activity books or electronic devices I'm armed with, the inevitable is that after 20 minutes he's going to get bored, fidget and cause mischief!

So wouldn't it be awesome to have more cafes that have prepared for this very real problem and equipped their establishment with suitable kids entertainment or play areas?

With that in mind, here are London's Cafes with Play Areas or entertainment, perfect for any mummy catch up.
