Love this place! A lot of the time you feel really judged bringing toddlers to cafes when they spend 99% of the time... screaming. Linnhe doesn't bat an eyelid when my little ones have a meltdown. The gated areas mean they can't escape and I can enjoy a drink. We love the milkshakes & cakes and of course the beautiful clothes you can buy!😍(Bea wearing trousers from Mini eden)read more

Wonderful shop and a friendly, supportive atmosphere. Good selection of drinks and treats for adults and children as... well as free fruit on a Friday for the kids. Really lovely clothes and toys for sale and there are even gift vouchers available to buy if you can’t decide on a gift. Linnhe is very relaxed and friendly with her customers and very helpful too. I really like going there and my son does too - don’t know what we’d do without mini Eden! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️read more
Met here for a coffee and catch up with a friend last week with our kids. It was the most relaxed coffee catch up... I’ve ever had as the kids could just play with the toys whilst we nattered. Not stressful at all, will definitely be back.read more
This was an unexpected find as cyclists we were looking for coffee and a cake and stumbled on this gem. The coffee was... excellent, the chocolate brownie yummy, and the owner was really lovely. We would recommend to everyone and are hoping to call in on Friday before we return home.read more
What a lovely experience! We walked in not knowing what to expect, and spent quite some time inside: our little girls... explored, played the piano, coloured, while we browsed and had a chat. No stress at all. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the neighbourhood!read more

Popped in to buy a couple of cheap tops for my 7 and 2 year old, and left with a big bag full of jeans, jumpers and... coats as well. Huge choice, great quality, and my two girls were entertained for an hour by the dolls house. Really lovely business.read more
