Sugarlumps provides an escape for those who fancy a lovely cuppa a slice of cake, either with or without the children. The inviting tea shop has tables and chairs in the front room where you can sit and watch the world go by, and comfy armchairs in the back room to sit and watch the kids have fun with the toys and books provided. Displayed around the walls of the 2 rooms are gifts and treats handmade by Rocket + Fairydust, perfect for browsing while the kids play and you enjoy a cuppa!
Sugarlumps, in conjunction with Rocket + Fairydust offers tea, coffee cake and gifts, as well as shopping evenings and a venue for birthday parties. Conveniently, Sugarlumps has street parking and outside seating for sunny days.
The brains behind Sugarlumps and Rocket + Fairydust are good friends Steph and Kirstin. They are local mums of young children and this all-encompassing layout comes as a solution to a dilemma that many new parents face.
“Merstham has a distinct lack of friendly meeting places, and we were inspired to join forces and create Sugarlumps after a friend of ours mentioned that they had to drive 3 miles to get a decent cuppa. I think I’m one of many parents looking for an inviting space where not only my kids will have fun, but I will too,” says Steph.
We are both creative people,” says Kirstin “Our background and strengths complement each other well and have helped us create the best possible space for grown-ups and kids alike.”
Sugarlumps serves coffee and tea along with delicious Danish pastries, cakes, cookies and healthy drinks and snacks for the kids. Rocket + Fairydust’s resident artist Kirstin has an onsite workshop where she creates hand-painted gifts for children and grown-ups! Much of her work is on show around Sugarlumps and can be ordered directly from Kirstin.
Sugarlumps & Rocket + Fairydust opens during the week from 9.00 till 3.00 and on Saturday mornings from 10.00 till 1.00. Birthday parties can be booked during these hours and additionally on Saturday afternoons. Please take a look at their Facebook pages for details of Shopping Evenings in the run-up to Christmas.
