Cafe in New Hampshire Run by Parents for Parents, but Kids Love It Too
When you are with your kids, sometimes it feels like you never get to be an adult. There's a cafe in Londonderry, New Hampshire, that lets you be a grown-up and your kids be kids.
What is this magical place where you can be a grown-up and your kids can have fun too?
It's the Nest Family Cafe in Londonderry, New Hampshire. It was started by a couple with three kids who used to love grabbing a cup of coffee before kids. They also realized that doing that with kids isn't much fun. The pair determined that if they ever wanted to have a fun coffee and cafe experience, they were gonna have to make it themselves. So they did.
Does it actually work?
It works incredibly well. This is Ryan and Jamie Getchell, owners of The Nest Family Cafe. They live in Londonderry, New Hampshire, with their three kiddos – Norah, Piper, and Wyatt. They believe that life doesn’t have to stop when you become a parent.
They have somehow been able to create a place where you can enjoy a cup of coffee and a little bite while your kids have fun and are safe. It sure beats being stared at when your kid gets fussy and there's not a changing table in sight.
Wait. The play space is free for the kids?
Yes! That might be the best part, and a huge motivator for Ryan and Jamie. Paying 20 bucks a kid to play can get expensive. There's a playing area, reading area, and huge chalk wall too! They even make the food fun for kids, while still being nutritious!
This is the Piggly Wiggly with all-natural honey ham, pickles, apples, pretzels, American cheese, and honey mustard. It's one of the most popular snacks.
I love that this couple wanted something but couldn't find it, so they built it. It's a loved destination!
