Thank you for your understanding.


Offering a pleasant atmosphere to parents with children and grandparents with grandchildren, the Babycafé is open every Friday from 9 a.m. until noon. A hostess is always available to welcome you. The Babycafé is an opportunity for you to meet other mothers, fathers, grandmothers or grandfathers with their child or grandchild. Toys, play mats, biscuits and fruit are available for the children.
