Look After Yourselves

In challenging times, our mental health can take a bit of a battering. Whilst we all have work to do and kids to look after and we’re all worried about our families in this time, it’s still important to take the time to look after yourselves.

Until: The New Installation At Tramway

This latest installation at Tramway is truly fantastic. It’s a full on sensory experience; for everyone. Just be aware with young kids that it’s no touching!

Crafty Play Cafe at Three Sisters Bake – CLOSED

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!

Children’s Exhibition at Tramway

The kids had such good fun at the Children’s Exhibition at Tramway. It isn’t massive, but we spent about an hour there and could easily have been there longer. The exhibits are fully interactive and the plasticine in particular gives a perpetually changing landscape to play with and mould, which both my kids really enjoyed. It’s free as well, which is always a bonus during the school holidays!


The inflatables at Badminton For You make a great change from soft play. All the climbing and bouncing around exhausts the little lady (and me when I join in). We really enjoy it.

Lunching at the No. 1 Chocolate Factory – NOW CLOSED

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. …

A Lunch Date in Montgomery’s – CLOSED

I love Montgomery’s Cafe. In the pre-child lives of my husband and I, it was our little local. Breakfast, lunch, cake, whatever.

The Cafe

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 Verdict

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

Jungle In The City – CLOSED

We had a spare hour the other day and decided to pop into Jungle In The City soft play in Glasgow West End. It’s in Partick, and it’s so close to us that I can’t believe I’ve never been before! The Play Area The play area is in a few parts: there’s a play frame, a big …

Gambado Glasgow – CLOSED

We’ve been meaning to go along for a while to Gambado soft play at Braehead, as we’d heard lots of great things. So we went to try it out at the weekend. The play area It was smaller than I expected (especially for the price). Toddler area was good (and gated) – it had a …

Debenhams Cafe – CLOSED

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 …

Waverley Tearooms – CLOSED

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 …

A Cake & a Cuppa in Penny Black Glasgow – CLOSED

We took a trip with some mummy & baby friends to Penny Black Glasgow this morning – the new cafe/post office/card shop on Great Western Rd. The Verdict Good tea, delish cake, friendly staff, amazing cards… Lovely place! Highly recommended.
