Children's Cafe for Brockley Cross

The Tea Factory is getting a new occupant. Tea Dance for Little People is a cafe designed for children, opening in the building's long-vacant corner unit this summer.

The ambitious business is the brain child of Brockley resident Sally-Anne Donaldson, who moved in this week and is working with Tea Leaf Arts and Green Tea Architects to create the space.

The site says:

Donaldson decided to combine her profession as a dancer with her love of coffee and create a space where you can jump on the sofas. This is a café with a difference. Enjoy good food and drink whilst specialist dancers, musicians and artists encourage physical and creative development with your little ones through play, exploration and interaction.

BC has been arguing for a couple of years that it was only a matter of time before a family-friendly cafe opened in Brockley to cater for the growing army of young families in the area although this is a considerably more elaborate proposition than we envisaged.
