We serve a range of delicious toasties, sarnies, salads and most importantly cake
AND there's a good chance you'll have a free hand to eat with whilst your little is happily enjoying something from our kid's menu...bonus!
For the diddy ones we have a special menu with recipes and portion sizes to suit their age/weaning stage.
Drinks-wise, we serve amazing Round Hill Roastery coffee from just up the road, Leafy Tea Company teas, and the yummiest hot chocolate, plus smoothies (including a banging lactation blend), tempting milkshakes, and a range of other refreshing cold drinks.
Babycinos and mini hot chocolates for the mini people plus a nutrient rich smoothie every day means they (hopefully!) won't want to steal any of yours!
We've carefully designed every aspect of our space to ensure it works for parents (and grandparents and nannies and anybody else who looks after any aged kiddiwinkles all day).
We have clean and organised WC facilities including a large baby changing area and family loo seats to suit little bottoms as well as adult ones.
There are nursing pillows available so that breastfeeding Mamas can feed without their back hurting...even if your little will only ever feed in that bloomin' rugby ball position, and lots of little touches to just make things that bit easier!
We have lots of highchairs and booster seats which are kept clean and maintained at all times.
And most of all, we have a lovely friendly welcome awaiting you.
Head through to our awesome new soft play space and you'll find an exciting array of equipment to climb and bounce all of that energy out on, PLUS some lovely age appropriate toys to enjoy.
Head to our bookings page to guarantee a slot, or pop by as we will always have some space set aside for walk ins depending on availability.
Just want a cuppa in the cafe and the chance to drink it hot? Or want to amuse those tiny hands whilst waiting for your lunch to arrive? We will have a small selection of toys available in the cafe to choose from & play with at your table. Yay!
A little bit about me...
Hi. My name is Flis, and I'm the owner of Fox & Kit.
I live in the beautiful city of Bath with my lovely husband Gavin, our two little girls, a Jack Russell pupper called Renly, and Pearl the cat (whom outdates everyone else and has the attitude to match).
Since my first baby arrived in May 2016 I've been trekking around the streets of Bath (mostly to get her to sleep) in search of a place I could comfortably be with her, whilst indulging my need for caffeine and/or cake. I found there was a void of places I could visit with my new set of requirements - buggy access, good (and clean!) baby changing facilities, a comfy enough chair to breastfeed in without feeling like my bottom had gone into a coma after 5minutes... being a new parent is super tough and I just wanted a place of solace where I could feel comfy & welcome, and adequately (de)caffeinated after yet another sleepless night.
Fast forward over 3 & a half years and I was still struggling to find somewhere suitable, and adding the joys (?!) of a fast moving wriggly toddler whom most definitely did not want to sit still on my lap or in a highchair until I ate my inevitably now cold panini. After chatting to lots of other parents & caregivers of different aged children it seemed I was very much not alone in my struggle.
So, this is what I set out to build. A little place of solace where people who happen to spend most of their waking hours (and many of those they wish weren't awake for!) with children can come and hang out, drink coffee and enjoy a delicious bite to eat, whilst their little ones play with lovely age appropriate toys in a safe and fun environment.
Somewhere all needs are met- from drinking your latte before it's gone stone cold (I feel your pain folks!), being able to put your baby down somewhere clean and safe to give your arms a bit of a rest, to having space for toddlers to toddle without risking running into the street and being caught up in a passing group of tourists, keeping your older offspring amused and fed whilst juggling general life, to dealing with a poo-nami, poo-mageddon, poo-splosion situation in a lovely tidy well designed changing area. I wanted to create this for all parents in our brilliant city to feel welcome and looked after.
After 15 years in the hospitality industry working in bars, cafes, pubs and restaurants, from tiny independents to huge multinational chains, I'm so happy to have started my own business doing what I love. I have a passion for delivering great service and a fantastic product, and I can't wait to welcome you and your babes (whether they are 3 weeks, 3 years or 30 years old!).
