A great place to entertain your kids. My daughter spent 2 hours creating her bunny. The young lady who looked after us was very jolly and attentive. Highly recommended.

Alex Bayley-Kaye

A nice creative place for kids to engage and enjoy. Lovely owners, take care of every fine detail. Good for birthday parties too.

Surya Behara

Great place to take the kids. Friendly, patient and warm place. Nice way to spend an afternoon. Café does enough to keep a dad happy despite the chaos of crafting!1
