Sling Snack Café Meets

We are launching a brand new event; we will be meeting regularly in one of the many cafés around Oxford for an informal chat about anything you like. Many of us face similar parenting situations and meeting up with other people can really help with getting out the house and enjoying some friendly company. Bring your babies, toddlers, buggies, slings and perhaps something to keep your child entertained.


The location of our meets will change each month so keep an eye on our website and Facebook pages for more details. Our first Sling Snack Café Meet is on Tuesday 16th February at Pastiche Deli, 148 Cowley Road, 11am-12.30pm.

Bus stops near the East Oxford Community Centre.
Parking is behind Tesco. The turning into the carpark is opposite Pastiche Deli.

Pastiche Deli
Organic Persian-Italian-Greek-twist deli with traditional counter-style display. Offering homemade and healthy organic salads, cakes, jams, olives, herbal teas, dried fruits, and more.
Gluten Free available.
