The dishwasher is on, nappies are thrown quickly into the nappy bag and the kids are in the car faster than you can say “Where’s the coffee?”

Whether it’s because it stops the moaning or your house being torn apart,  most mornings parents everywhere just want to get the kids out of the house.

For parents with tiny tots, minimising the number of times you have to get the kids out of the car is also a priority. There’s only so many combos of car-seat to Baby Bjorn to pram and trolley and ‘HOLD MY HAND!’ a mum can take!

That’s why playgrounds with coffee RIGHT THERE are a mum’s best friend. We’ve put together a list of playgrounds where coffee is convenient (no more than a minute walk away).
