“Welcoming & fun for kids!”

Jollytots & Cookies
Ranked #1 of 1 Dessert in Uddingston
Certificate of Excellence
Description: Jollytots & Cookies is a wonderful unique Family Cafe and Party venue in Uddingston. Very different from typical soft play venues, Jollytots & Cookies provides a fun environment for little children with its range of wooden play structures from Pirate Ship to Fire Station. Adults can enjoy a lovely coffee with their cake or enjoy a hearty lunch from the trendy menu. Not a chip in sight! The emphasis is on decent quality fare at affordable prices. One customer complimented the owner on bringing "The West End of Glasgow to Lanarkshire!"

“Welcoming & fun for kids!”
Reviewed 26 August 2014 via mobile

Had been meaning to visit for some time and was glad to have waited several weeks after opening to do so. I had been hesitant due to other reviews regarding spaces for buggies etc but this wasn't an issue at all for us even though we had a double buggy. We went early morning so there was plenty of time to have a coffee as well as play along with the children who were aged 5 months and 16 months. It was great to have an area our youngest could experience as well as plenty of traditional toys and attractions for our older child. Really would recommend people have a visit, make up your own mind about the place because it's different to other "play zones/soft play" and we are looking forward to returning! All toys and play areas are clean and well stocked which is a huge plus for us. Received a very warm and friendly welcome which helped us to feel comfortable.

“Very original, good food and great play areas”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

We have been looking to go here for a while after becoming aware of Jollytots& Cookies on Facebook and having came across the owner before at a gymboree franchise. It was easy to get to from East Kilbride, located just round the corner from the famous Tunnocks bakery. The cafe is split into 2 areas, with the main cafe and serving area at the front. It's a good size play area for toddlers which also has a table and sofa. In the cafe area unfortunately space is limited, mainly because there are a few lounge sofas and large tables meaning some customers are restricted to a small table or have to share with other customers. Not uncommon in some coffee shops but as there's more families here a bit limiting. Food wise there's a good choice of tasty sandwiches , soups and a decent selection of cakes. We got a chocolate cake and the slice was massive. The food is priced reasonably and although I was initially put off at having to pay a fiver for the play area it's just slightly above soft play prices and the foods better. One minor niggle, the signs up telling you to pay before your sit down etc are slightly narky and don't reflect the generally friendly atmosphere. Overall recommended for a change for the kids and parents looking sit something a wee bit different

“Lovely new play cafe.”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

Visited today with a few mummy friends and mix of 1,2 and 4 year olds. All the kids loved it and played happily for 1.5 hours. Younger ones enjoyed the sensory room and the older ones playing at firemen. The food was nice. Good coffee. Nice soup, sandwiches etc for the adults and kids and wee nibbles of fruit etc so plenty of healthy options. We'll be back!

“Something different.”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Have now been to Jollytots and cookies twice and I am sure I will be back. It is a nice change from regular soft play and really kept my wee one amused for ages. The different areas are great and he didn't know what to be up to. He especially liked the sensory room and slide in the fire station. Think he went down about 100 times in a row.

I do have one suggestion and it's not a complaint but in the arts and crafts area I feel there are a few things lying around which aren't child friendly and also the door to the staff area was left open. As my wee one is a typical explorer I had to pull him back from a few things which is my only down side but this will be improved I'm sure.

Looking forward to seeing the place improve although I already think it is excellent.

“Lovely place & lovely atmosphere!”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

I visited today with my 3 year old daughter and niece. We booked into the cupcake making & fruit & veg tasting class! The children' got to try lots of fruits, make their own sandwich and then get tucked into a lovely cupcake after they decorated it themselves. There was lots of singing and interaction with the kids as well. My daughter and niece were delighted.

Afterwards the girls played for a solid hour and a half in the play area. Both girls absolutely loved all the dress up, and different parts to the area. They would have easily stayed there all day! Normally at soft play the kids are running back and forward...not today...they were to mesmerised by all the different toys and areas.

Lovely atmosphere for a coffee and great play areas to get the kids imagination going.
