A new cafe opened locally to me in Bromley, and no it isn't a fourth Starbucks! The Lavender House Cafe...
This one is full of sweet homemade cupcakes, wholesome soups and man-size sandwiches, there's also a welsh dressers full of cute gifts, wooden toys and cookbooks such as the hummingbird bakery - which I recommend by the way!
They also sell local produce such as delicious kent apple juice and french breads.
The window area boasts a mini table for little ones and a toy corner, you can chose to sit in the main area, the conservatory or if it's dry - the garden - very large garden for children to play in!
The front entrance is a little steep for buggies but it can be done! alternatively you can use the side entrance, there is space to park your buggy, high chairs and baby change facilities - however the baby change is a very tight fit! There's a choice of organic baby foods and they sell single nappy change packs too if you get caught short!
Whilst there isn't a private area for breastfeeding, I was comfortable using a cover and feeding in the cafe as most of the other customers seemed to be mums. There's also bottle warming facilities too.
Depending on Baby/Laptop compatibility - there is a free wifi network in the cafe for customers to use.
Great for lunch or tea & cake, child and baby friendly, good place to meet friends, inspiration for small gifts.
A cupcake costs about £1.60
Lunch for about £5
