I completely disagree with last review! My partner and I take our 2 and 5 year old regularly and they enjoy every minute here. The cozy friendly atmosphere and staff make us feel very welcome every time we go. The menu is simple and great ideas for kids. It's actually foods kids eat for a change and for less than £2.50 for a little meal with drink! We always get food here as its as cheap as eating at home. And having the 2 hours for £3.00 is fantastic. All the other places charge you for going over your hour, which of your eating you always do! But here they are so relaxed they have a standard £3.00 to pay and we never feel pressured to leave even when this time is up. We have 2 hours out, food, drinks and entrance normally for under £20.00. That's unheard of anywhere these days. The kids love it and we love the fact they can play safely where we can see them at all times. We will continue spending plenty of time at Logan's Den along with many of our friends who say exactly the same as us. Amazing value for money, very clean, safe and friendly, thank you Logan's Den. A real asset to Baldock!!
At time of writing Logan's Den has been open 1 month. It is a 'soft play kids cafe'.
I visited on a Monday morning at approx 11.30am and was the only person there, although we were joined a bit later by two other mums and their children.
The soft play is split into 2 sections one for under 2s and the other for 2-9 years. You pay £3 for 2 hours play. When investigating this I though this sounded a great deal a nice wee cuppa for me while my 2.5 year old son had a play.
In reality the softplay area is miniscule by far the smallest I have ever seen! I really grudged paying £3 and though an absolute maximum would have been £2.
For over 2s there is little to provide any stimulation. The soft play comprises Ground Level a series of 'punch bags' that lead to a dead end(!) and small ball pool which has the exit of the slide. Level 1 big birthing ball type things to dodge round and entrance to a circular slide. The slide area is very very dark and my son could not be persuaded to try it. Indeed the owner said her own son thought it was too dark.
The under 2s section has a small free standing slide, 'small' ball pool, rocking horse, play mat and selection of books and games.
My son is only 2.5 and I can't ever imagine him wanting to spend 2 hours playing here. My daughter is 8 and wouldn't even consider taking her.
In terms of the cafe there is a small selection of made to order sandwiches, toasties etc but nothing that made me think 'wow, that looks/sounds tasty'. They could do with a muck better selection of homemade cakes etc. Kids meals consist of foods that kids actual eat and at great prices too so this was one real plus.
All in all I wanted to be able to say that I really liked this place because the idea is great and just want the area needs. However I can't. It was okay but nothing more and could be done so much better.
