Whilst these top 5 lists are not in any particular order, these child friendly spots are some firm favourites of Foozie and we think them deserving of a shout out! If you are looking for inspiration for your next family outing then have a scroll…


Swoon Gelato

Address: 31 College Green, Bristol BS2


OK, so we understand that Gelato is probably a treat you use to entice a little one into eating all of their dinner but with good reason, Swoon is the best in the city. It’s a great spot to bring the little ones for some delicious tasting dessert. Let them try the array of gorgeous flavours, before allowing them to choose and sit in the spacious restaurant to watch the smiles on faces as they enjoy.

St. Werburgh’s City Farm Cafe

Address: Watercress Road, Bristol BS2


This lovely community cafe in the heart of St. Werburgh’s is a hub of ethical, organic delicious food teamed with a lovely garden, play area and farmyard. It’s an inspiring and enlightening place to visit with children as not only is it fun for them to explore, they can also learn about local food and how it ends up being on their plate. The food is also wonderful.



Address: Wapping Wharf, Bristol


Take your little people out for a Sunday stroll around Cargo and the possibilities are numerous when looking for a pit-stop to enjoy something to eat. Casual crates such as Pigsty, Squeezed (who offer a mini burger for children) and Bertha’s (who do mini pizzas) are all family friendly and being on the waterfront means you can walk off the calories afterwards and hopefully tire their little legs before bedtime.

Pizzarova makes eating slices fun at their Gloucester Road restaurant. The space is big and spacious, with more than enough room for prams and also they offer colouring books and pencils to keep the family entertained. You order your pizzas by choosing which toppings you’d like, so this is a fun way to get the kids involved too.

With plenty of space, Bocabar is a perfect hangout for Mum’s meeting for coffee (and Dad’s too!) as it’s comfortable and casual. Lots of sofa’s make the cafe and bar feel really cosy, without feeling like you are sitting on top of others. There are freshly made pizzas, sandwiches and salads on offer from the deli bar to choose from and Bocabar has space for prams and highchairs.
