The new play café for little ones and their grown-ups.

Hello, my name is Lara and I can’t wait to welcome you here at Skyboat Cafe. As a local mum of three kids aged 6 and under, I wanted to create a space in Bristol that was equally about the kids and the grown-ups. A place where I would want to go for coffee and meet with friends and where I know my kids can play and have a great time. Having studied at the Royal College of Art I have used my background to create a design-led environment to where little one’s imaginations can run wild.

Lara met Stef, also a mum of three little ones, at a children’s birthday party. They quickly realised they shared the same creative vision and together they co-founded Skyboat. Stef has brought her experience of the catering industry and her background working Michelin starred restaurants to deliver a top cafe experience, where parents and carers can enjoy delicious food, beautiful coffee and teas, in a relaxed and informal setting. 

Skyboat Café is a community hub for young families in Redland and surrounding areas; a place for parents and kids to meet people and make friends and a support network for new mums. Skyboat Café is proud to be part of a fiercely independent local high street on Coldharbour Road and has a collaborative relationship with local businesses.
