Sick of Softplay?

For almost as long as we’ve had our Quarriers Village café we have been wracking our brains to think of ways to make it easier for parents and grandparents to enjoy a more relaxing lunch or coffee and cake with wee ones in tow. Under 5’s are not known for their long attention spans, (or love of sitting in highchairs while we drink coffee and chat!), but surely having kids shouldn’t mean you never get to enjoy the experience of eating out, or that you spend your life crawling around on church hall floors or confined to the chaos of softplay?? We also know that grandparents are increasingly spending more time with their grandkids during the week and also want to be able to enjoy a nice scone or coffee while doing so!

And so, after much brainstorming, the concept of “Crafty Play Café” was born! Launching initially at our Quarriers Village café on a Tuesday, Crafty Play Café will transform the raised mezzanine area of the cafe into a play café complete with soft matting; a mini circus tent for den building, dressing up clothes, books, games, jigsaws and age appropriate toys for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers. High chairs, a bouncer and a play gym will also be available for babies.

Arts & Crafts

For older toddlers and pre-schoolers, colouring in will be provided on each table. For little ones with an interest in arts & crafts, craft materials will also be available for a small fee of  £2 per child, allowing parents and grandparents to spend time having creative fun with their wee ones.

Safety & Service

A stair gate will separate the play café area from the rest of the café – which will still function as usual for the rest of our customers – ensuring families in the play café area can relax while their children play without worrying about disturbing other guests or their child escaping! To ensure maximum safety for little crawlers and babies, counter service will operate in the play café with hot drinks served in compostable take away cups to prevent any hot spillages. Customers will collect food from a designated table within the play area to prevent unnecessary footfall by our team of waiting staff.

Book a Table Online

Tables in the Crafty Play Café will be bookable, either online by clicking here or by calling the café, for sessions from 10am-midday; midday-2pm; 2pm-4pm. Walk-in customers will be warmly welcomed at any time although as we anticipate Crafty Play Café tables being in high demand, booking is advisable to secure a table as children seated outwith the play area will not be permitted to play in the play section without parental supervision.

Large Bookings (over 4 people)

Although the maximum booking size we can accept online is 4 people, we can accept bookings of up to 20 people by calling the cafe on 0333 344 7344.

School Holidays

Although the toys and activities in our Crafty Play Area are be aimed at babies to pre schoolers, school age children will be welcomed during school holidays. We would ask parents to be mindful of the fact that the area is primarily for younger children and to ensure older children do not run around or behave in a way which may alarm younger children.




Summer Cycle Challenge

Sustrans N75 Cycle Path
National Route 75 of the National Cycle Network connects Leith in east Edinburgh with Portavadie on the Cowall Peninsula in Argyll, via Glasgow and using the ferry between Gourock and Dunoon. The section of the path which passes Quarriers Village was once railway line and is completely traffic free from Paisley Canal Train Station to Gourock, other than a short section through Elderslie.

The path to Quarriers Village can be accessed between Bridge of Weir and Kilmacolm, both of which are well signposted along the route.

Travelling to the N75 Cycle Path by Car or Train

If you do not live in one of the villages which the path passes through and would like to drive or get the train to a point where you could begin a cycle, here are a list of a few local access points, some of which have car parks close by. Look out for the blue cycle path signposts in each village. Follow signs towards Bridge of Weir or Kilmacolm (Quarriers Village is signposted when you get to these places). When you pass Bridge of Weir keep an eye out after about one mile for a path off to the left which will be marked Quarriers Village (or off to the right if coming from Kilmacolm/ Port Glasgow/ Greenock direction).

Kilmacolm – Access to the cycle path is behind Carriages Pub in the centre of the village, there is also a free public carpark in the village centre.

Driving to Quarriers to start a cycle
To alleviate congestion in the village, we would encourage anyone driving to start a bike ride at the café to use the overflow parking facilities at the old Carsemeadow nursery building situated just off the main road in the village (the entrance is opposite Faith Avenue).

Quarriers Village Play Park
Why not make a day of it and spend time in the play park? Quarriers Village has a lovely play park very close to the cafe, situated just behind the Mount Zion church building in the heart of the village. The park is adjacent to large playing fields and accesses a lovely river walk. There is a kids cycle path located beside the playpark also, perfect for learner cyclists or little scooters!



Our Cookbook!

Three Sisters_front coverSML

*To buy our book online, click here!*

Back in November 2012, we received an amazing and life changing phone call from Kate Pollard at Hardie Grant Publishing in London asking us if we would be interested in writing a cookbook. Having our own book published was a HUUUGE ambition for us, but we just imagined it was a completely unrealistic pipe dream, or at best something that might happen in ten years time!

Fast forward 15 months and we received the advance copy of ‘Three Sisters Bake: Delectable Recipes for Every Day’, full of amazing, mouth watering recipes and some equally amazing food shots thanks to our fantastic photographer Helen Cathcart. We still don’t know how she managed to make our creations look so good but we just hope you like it as much as we do!!

The book is now available for purchase from Three Sisters Bake cafes, via our online shop as well as bookshops across the UK.
