Apple Tree Children's Cafe - Children's Cafe & Playroom in Herne Hill

Apple Tree is an independent Children's cafe and playroom in Herne Hill, South London. Founded in February of 2018, Apple Tree is the latest and greatest addition to Herne Hill's burgeoning independent business community.

All parents and carers know that children are fairly hard to please for a consistent period of time... The rapid growth rate of their brains and bodies demand an ever increasing range and depth of stimuli, from exciting foods (ever encouraged your baby to suck on a lemon slice? Try it...) to intriguing textures and most significantly; to multi-sensory environments.

There's something about things that look, feel, sound and taste fun that have children captivated. Finding these environments has always been tricky; rain can dash hopes of a trip to the park; museums might be lost on your 2 year old and, believe it or not, there's only so much fun you can have indoors with a cardboard box.

This is why Emily, a primary school teacher of seven years with two little ones of her own, decided to open the Apple Tree Cafe; a space so intriguing that your children will be captivated for hours, yet not so big that you constantly have to chase after them to keep them safe. A place where they can role-play with others of the same age at cooking, theatre and good old fashioned mums and dads. A place to learn through play and do so without constant, constraining supervision. 

Come and check out the space for yourself and treat yourself to a quality coffee and pastry while you're at it; this may well be your new favourite hangout.
