that fulfils the following criteria:
- it's within 10-15 minutes' walk of the station (so - Hills Road / Mill Road area);
- i won't get kicked out / glared at for taking my friendly but occasionally noisy 2-year-old daughter there.
all the cafés I can think of are either greasy spoons or full of uptight neurotic academic types. so far, the winning option is to get food from M&S and sit in the communal gardens on Devonshire Road.
