Hidden in Gill's nursery Cheltenham, is a very cute little place called Il Giardino café. The magical element of this café is the cute cubby house displays that have been set up allowing children to run and play while parents sit and eat. The cubby houses are perfect for little ones encouraging safe climbing, imaginary play and incidental learning. The space is easily visible from all outdoor seating and has a cute menu for adults and children. (Children need to be supervised at all times). The menu includes an all day breakfast which gets a big tick from me. After having some lunch and a play, you can walk through the beautifully designed nursery for some home landscaping inspiration. This is one of our favourite places to go at the moment. My daughter loves to smell the flowers and we talk about all the different coloured petals there are. If your a local, it's definitely worth having a look.
The cafe is open 7 days a week from 8.30am-4pm.
