There’s a chill in the air, woollen hats and scarves are aplenty, the gumboots have come out of storage and the kettle is constantly being boiled so the teapot is always full and never cool. Yes it’s winter and although it’s cold outside its still fun to rug up and go on a café adventure with your little babes.

Warm frosty little faces by the open fire.
Nothing screams winter like an open fire. Of course a heated courtyard is just as lovely too. These cafes will keep little hands warm and tiny tummies full.

I say what’s the soup of the day?
If you can’t be bothered making your own soup for lunch or the thought of eating from a can is just too much to handle then why not let someone do all the hard work for you? These cafes are cosy and serve up a mean soup of the day with crusty bread.

Who’s been eating my porridge!
Warm bowls of rolled oat goodness topped with honey, poached fruits or just plain brown sugar make me and my wee ones happy. These cafes serve up hearty hot bowls of porridge for you and your little peeps.
