At Acorn, we love to find new local activities that mums and dads can do with their kids, and we built an entire platform with thousands of fun and exciting things to do (check us out at www.getacorn.com).

However we also know that parents need to find places where they can have a great coffee while their kids are having fun.

Here is a short selection of interesting cafes in the trendy neighborhood of Stoke Newington in East London.

The Green Room has been around for quite a long time in Stokey and it’s almost an institution. The entrance is a little bit small (it’s hidden behind a flower shop) but the garden is accessible through a ramp which makes it a good fit for new mums and dads. There is plenty of space in the garden for your kids to play around and the cakes are very tasty (more).

Lizzy’s on the Green in Newington Green

Nested in the middle of the Newington Green roundabout right next to the playground, Lizzy’s is the place to be when you want to let your kids have fun while you are enjoying a delicious cappuccino sitting on the terrasse.

Slightly off the beaten track, this little gem is a paradise for kids. With plenty of toys, books and delicious cakes your little ones won’t see the time passing by. Which leaves you plenty of time to relax, chat with other parents or just read a good old book while sipping a delicious latte (more).

Fink’s Salt and Sweet on Mountgrove Road

The Finks is perhaps one of the best places to have a brunch on week ends so you can expect it to be busy. However during the week you’ll get the place for yourself so you can enjoy some delicious food and a tasty cappuccino. The place is large enough to get kids around and it closes around 7pm which allows you to wait there if your little ones are doing activities in the area (more).
