Taste Perthshire is a great stop on the A9 whether you are looking for some food, for a cuppa, or to meet some friendly highland cows.
Easy dinners at IKEA are the way forward. The kids love it, and now there are plant based & eco-friendly options for everyone!
The Crafty Play Cafe at Three Sisters Bake is the perfect place to eat out with young kids. You don’t have to worry about them getting bored because there’s lots for them to do in a safe space. And you can eat your delicious food as slowly as you’d like. I mean, what an absolutely brilliant idea this is. I cannot rate it highly enough!
If you love cats and don’t have any of your own to pat (or even if you do) then this is the place for you. The food is probably a bit more expensive than I’d like to have paid for it, but the cake was really delicious. The joy that the little lady got from meeting all the lovely cats was totally worth it.
I don’t often take the kids out for ice cream in the middle of winter. But when I do, I make sure I get a churro out of it!
The Big Feed is a brilliant place to eat out is a casual, family friendly setting. There’s lots going, lots of background noise, and it’s no problem if you have a roamer child like we do. The food is also casual, but really yummy.
We’ve only ever been to Bread Meats Breads as a couple before; on those nights we’re out without children, living it up in the city… But I was having a look at the new Bread Meats Bread on Great Western Road and noticed that they have booths, much more space than the restaurant in town, …
We’ve been to Gusto & Relish cafe in Shawlands quite a few times now. Partly because they do my husbands favourite breakfast – baked eggs, but also because they’re so child & family friendly.
We went back to our old Monday haunt in the Mitchell Library this morning: Bounce & Rhyme. Great little group & there are loads all over Glasgow. (See here for a post I did a while ago about Bounce & Rhyme.) We had lunch in the Mitchell Cafe afterwards – they do yummy soups, sandwiches, …
The No. 1 Chocolate Factory in Glasgow’s Charing Cross has always been the go-to place for my mummy & baby friends. Less so now because the babies are all toddlers and hating sitting still for more than 15 seconds at a time. But we still pop in on occasion to meet someone or grab some grub. …
We were out with family last week for a little celebration dinner. It wasn’t really in aid of anything, but who needs a reason to celebrate? We were meeting in town, and decided to wander along to George Square, to Browns. We’ve been to Browns a few times with the little lady, including once when …
A friend was out in Uddingston the other day, and went to Jollytots and Cookies with her daughter. She very kindly wrote a great review for the page. Thank you so much Aileen! Here it is! Cost It costs £3 for an hour and a half play time. Pretty standard for soft play but there’s not as …
I love Montgomery’s Cafe. In the pre-child lives of my husband and I, it was our little local. Breakfast, lunch, cake, whatever.
I took the little lady today for lunch, and as usual, the food was delicious. Their soup is always amazing. Today we had carrot, ginger & lime, and it certainly hit the right spot with the little lady; she finished an entire bowl (a bowl the size of her head). With bread of course. I’m a fan of a good bit of homemade bread, and Montgomery’s make all theirs in house in the morning. You can tell. Because it’s seriously tasty.
They do really yummy sandwiches, hot meals and it’s a really nice place to breakfast (eggs benedict = winner). Their specials board is worth checking out, and they have a small children’s menu with a couples of toasties, sandwiches & kids soup bowl. I never noticed the kids soup option, hence the gigantic bowl.
Their ice cream is damn delicious too. And it’s most definitely worth going just for a cuppa and one of their cakes. Super yum!
The staff are really nice. One even played peek-a-boo with the little lady for a while.
There isn’t a huge amount of space for prams, especially when it’s busy (which is quite frequently). And they don’t have that many high chairs; I only saw 2, but perhaps there were more somewhere.
The food is delicious. The homemade bread is amazing & their cakes are divine. The grub is reasonably priced too. The cafe isn’t gigantic, so I might leave the pram at home. But as long as you beat the lunch rush you’ll be grand.
Montgomery’s Cafe is at 9 Radnor St, Glasgow, G3 7UA
If you’re ever in need of a place to feed your little one in town, Debenhams Cafe is a good shout. They have a microwave, bottle warmer & plenty of high chairs. Next to the microwave & bottle warmer, they also have little tubs with lids for baby’s food containing a spoon, a disposable bib and a …
We checked out the People’s Palace & Winter Gardens a few days ago.
Apart from being a place to run around in, the museum itself doesn’t really cater for young kids. There isn’t much for them to do & we didn’t come across any interactive exhibits or anything at all aimed at young kids.
However since stomping around on her own little mission is my little lady’s favourite thing in the world, it didn’t really matter.
Her favourite thing in the museum was the giant Clyde mascot which she attempted to climb a pillar to get to, and had a tantrum when she was unsuccessful.
The Winter Gardens & Cafe
The Winter Gardens are really nice. It’s warm, there are a lot of plants for a toddler to sniff and there’s a good bit of space to run around in.
The Winter Gardens are my new favourite place to meet up with mummy friends & their babies/toddlers. It’s reasonably central; there’s so much space (plenty space for a bunch of prams), loads of high chairs; and loud toddler voices get lost in the vastness of the giant greenhouse!
The food is decent & they have a nice selection of cakes. And their scones are pretty damn good.
If anyone’s looking for a place with pram space to meet up in town, Once Upon A Tart is pretty good. They don’t have a huge number of high chairs, but they have good big tables & it’s pretty spacious. Really nice grub too. Oh, and they do AMAZING cakes.
We had a meal out at Darcy’s Glasgow this evening to celebrate my birthday. (33! I can’t believe it – I genuinely still think of myself as a 20 year old). Anyway, Darcy’s is a great place to dine with kids. The staff are super friendly, the grub is lovely and they have a good …
We breakfasted at The butterfly and The Pig this morning (after a bit of ‘late night’…) It’s not the most baby friendly place ever – it was bit of a squeeze to get a (gigantic – not ikea) highchair in at our table, and it was really quiet (my child is rather noisy, so I …
We spent this afternoon at the Waverley Tearooms in Shawlands with some lovely mummies & babies. It is a great place to go with kids. The grub is nice, they have a decent kids menu & a little soft play area for a post-meal steam-let-off. They also have little baskets in the toilet in case you …
We went out for some food today in The Loft. I’ve never eaten there before; only drank there, quite a bit actually… But anyway, I was so pleasantly surprised. I can’t believe I didn’t know just how child friendly The Loft is. There are toys for kids to play with, a balloon man who made us an extra …
