Great asset to the Vineyards in Great Baddow. Serving lovely fresh sandwiches and cooked lunches. Kids will love the freak cakes in the kilner jars!

Visited this morning with my 11 month old and her 8 month old cousin. Its the perfect place to chill and chat over a cuppa whilst the little ones explore the soft play. Staffed by volunteers its super friendly and welcoming and very reasonably priced....More

My friend suggested this place for a coffee/catch up and a play date for our boys. The staff were really friendly, drinks tasty and the soft play perfect for younger children. Will definitely return.
