Established in 2005, award-winning café Homemade is located in the Forest Recreation Ground park, close to the city centre. Take in the peaceful surroundings of this cosy, licensed café, which serves an extensive brunch menu alongside lunch, delicious homemade cakes and locally roasted coffee. Sandwiches and cakes are also available to take away if you wish to enjoy them in the park. Booking is advised at weekends as this popular spot quickly fills up.
Opening hours are extended in the summer, and guests can enjoy their food and drink on the sunny terrace. Homemade is very child-friendly, with highchairs, board games and plenty of colouring books, as well as an adventure play park next to the café. The café is also dog-friendly, so it’s a great pit-stop after a dog walk in the park. Free parking is accessible from the Mansfield Road entrance to the park, making this a convenient oasis in which you can escape the bustle of the city without having to travel far. Homemade is available to hire for special occasions and private functions, and the team pulls out all the stops to ensure that your event is memorable for all the right reasons.
