It's a shame as this is a nice soft play, good size for toddlers and has a lot to offer. I have visited with my two year old many times over the last couple of years but there's one thing I can't get over every time I visit.....how smelly the loo's are! The bins need to be emptied more regularly-... More

I've been to Shakees Cafe on several occasions with my great-niece and nephew and have found it to be excellent. They offer a wide selection of panini's, sandwiches, cakes, drinks etc and as the children are happy playing, you actually get to speak to each other. Do go if you've got small children under 4 in tow.

Went her with a friend earlier in the year, have nothing bad to say about the place. My little one loved it there and thoroughly enjoyed herself. I also had a coffee and a sausage bap which was ample. Would return

We visit Shakees quite often on a Saturday morning. Lovely hot coffee and great bacon rolls - they are happy to provide very crispy bacon....yippee. Lets my niece have some fun while I enjoy a much needed coffee.
