“If you want to hear babble of life and eat freshly prepared food, seek out this cafe.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2011

This is a parents' dream, as it is informally laid out to make life easy for families with young ones. We arrived with babe-in-pram at 12.45 to find we had to join the queue out the door. [Try to be there at noon.] We were soon seated at a huge table near a toddler-toting family and a solo father and his pre-school daughter, who amicably doodled on a slate as they ate. Two business women and a senior couple sat nearby; it's not exclusively for the two younger generations. There are also small tables and nooks in this caring oasis. I ordered fresh orange/ grapefruit juice, whilst my daughter-i-law had her favourite decaffed coffee. Then our light meals arrived; a generous rocket and tomato salad and an interesting egg, mash, bacon and sprouts baguette.
The owner is also the waitress, so has her finger on the pulse with regards to what her guests ["guests" because that's the Little Nest's ambiance] love or don't, and the quality of what her staff put on the plates.
This is an eating model worth copying; why aren't there more?

Kids, especially the little ones will love it here. Lots of toys, room to play in, good food for parents and kids alike.
