Cafe’s & Restaurants with FREE Play Areas in Cardiff
It’s important to keep socializing even when you’ve got kids. I know when I first had my son it was a little overwhelming, but I still found it quite easy to eat out with a newborn as luckily, he tended to sleep through meals. Now he’s crawling and trying to walk, he’s a bundle of energy and not particularly keen on sitting still whilst I have a cup of coffee and a natter. I’ve been doing some research and looking for cafe’s or restaurants that also have a small play area that kids can enjoy. Cardiff does have lots of soft play options, but I’ll be compiling those another day. These are FREE areas that are safe for kids to play in whilst you grab a cup of tea or a bite to eat! I know that I don’t want to be forking out an average of £3-5 for my son to spend 15 minutes crawling around, although a couple of the soft plays offer free or reduced entry for non-walkers, a lot don’t. When you have babies and young toddlers, soft play often isn’t worth it and you can spend that money on a tasty snack instead! A cafe or restaurant also makes an ideal place to meet up with friends or family, whereas it’s hard to invite your friends out for an instant coffee in the soft play cafe (well, unless they too have young children, in which case that might be perfect!) evening meal at Cedar Tree Farm, but William was too young to enjoy the play area at the time.
