Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

The nursery rhyme name, the fairytale wooden cutouts on the walls, the well-stocked play area, the Thursday puppet shows… it’s clear who this café is aimed at and its loyal customer base of under-5s love it. Food is healthy and nutritious –no chicken nuggets here – but they’ll bend over backwards to accommodate children’s requirements with treats such as Nutella on toast and Ella’s Kitchen smoothie pouches. Grown-ups have a fine time too.

There are traditional cakes (carrot, lemon drizzle, jam sponge, earl grey tea loaf), a board of soups and specials, and when it says something comes ‘with salad’ (in our case a nice pea and shallot frittata) they mean five salads: potato, minty carrot, chilli courgette, couscous, houmous, plus a little dish of own-made cucumber pickle. Make it a pitstop if you are following the Green Chain Walk past One Tree Hill (an oasis in this otherwise residential area), or pick up a picnic and head for nearby Peckham Rye.
