  • positive review  We hosted my daughter’s 4th birthday party at Coffee & Crayons this weekend. It was our first experience of hiring a venue for a child’s party and we are so glad that we chose Coffee & Crayons. We have actually been visiting C&C for quite a few months and wonderful play cafe with our children both during the week and at weekends. The atmosphere is always so friendly and welcoming. It is definitely my ‘go-to’ place. Organising the party was very easy. The booking was straightforward and all our queries were promptly answered. Everything was set up when we arrived and the decorations were brilliant. The kids loved the soft play and it was the perfect space. My daughter really liked that fact that she was familiar with C&C and to her it felt like a home from home. Thank you all at Coffee & Crayons for helping us celebrate! We will be back very soon.. Actually tomorrow morning!

    5 star review  We celebrated my son's 2nd Birthday at Coffee & Crayons Cafe on 14th April 2019 and we were very happy with the staff and the service we received. Tia and Jonathan were both great and very helpful right from the beginning in answering all our queries with useful suggestions and advice with regards to planning our party. On the day, Tia, Jonathan and all the staff members provided a very friendly and courteous service to our guests and were very quick in serving drinks to everyone, considering we were such a large group. The food for kids and adults was delicious and plentiful. We would not hesitate to recommend this venue to friends and family for birthday parties or any function/workshops.... Besides, this is a great cafe for play dates with a lovely kids play area as Mum's can easily chat and catch up whilst kids are busy playing. The cafe offers lots of different weekly classes for babies and toddlers including soft play on certain days as well as organises various events for children like Easter party etc which is wonderful...I was wishing for a local child friendly cafe and was very happy when this opened! Wishing Coffee & Crayons lots more success!

    positive review  Absolutely love this place for so many reasons! A lovely relaxed vibe where children of all ages are welcome and can play, great vegan options and healthy snacks, friendly and helpful staff, clean and comfortable space. I have been here many times for coffee and also held an event in the gorgeous light and airy room upstairs, which was perfect for my event for mums. Tia and Jonathan were so helpful from start to finish and on hand for any help I needed. Would highly recommend Coffee & Crayons Café - whether it’s for a little outing with your new baby, coffee with a friend while your little ones play or if you are looking to hold a class, business event or party <3

    positive review  Coffee and Crayons is excellent! My 5 year old son and 7 year old daughter love their collection of children books, games, the soft play area and other weekly activities they hold in the function room upstairs. I highly recommend coffee and crayons for parents with young children to have a drink while kids play. My kids never want to leave and are always excited to visit!
