It’s no secret, I do love a good cup of proper coffee (a skinny latte with sugar free caramel syrup is my absolute fave if you’re interested) and whenever I get the chance I do love to pop into my favourite coffee shop for a cheeky Costa.
I’m delighted to have heard the news that for the third successive year, Costa has won Best Family Friendly Café at the Tommy’s Awards which were announced last week at the Landmark Hotel in London. The Tommy’s Awards acknowledge and recognise the best family-friendly companies that help make parents lives that little bit easier. As a busy mum, I know the struggles of being able to take a well deserved half an hour off enjoying some peace and quiet (even if you do have to take the little one asleep in the pushchair) or take advantage of the local drive through (a huge hurrah from parents with sleepy children in car seats!)
Jane Brewin, CEO of Tommy’s stated “We believe it is important to express our gratitude to those companies who go the extra mile. Being a mum-to be or parents is tough enough and all the companies, both the shortlist and winners do that.”
Costa is my go-to favourite coffee shop with its family friendly facilities. I love the relaxed atmosphere and I know that I can take Olly in there for one of my favourite drinks, sit on the cosy sofas and we can both relax and enjoy some time out of the house to meet with friends, catch up with family or just enjoy a different view for half an hour. It’s brilliant that they have been recognised as Best Family Friendly Café as it’s a nod to parents that they can take their children in without worry.
Congratulations Costa, a very well deserved award that is sure to be popular with families in and around the UK.
