Butterflies Café
Tom, dad to a three-year-old boy, recommends that Butterflies Café is perfect to keep your pre-schoolers entertained during dinner time. Butterflies Cafe is a wonderful venue for parents of pre-schoolers. Open only during weekdays, there is a large play area with plenty of toys for active play and great menu selections for the kids, ranging from a “puddle” of soup with breadsticks and dip to mini muffin pizzas.”

Joseph Pearce’s

Reservations recommended!”
