Family-friendly Coffee Shop
We are a family-run and family-friendly coffee shop, based in the heart of Stansted Mountfitchet village.
Our delicious food is made fresh on site. Our ingredients are sourced from local farmers, coffee roasters, bread and cake makers.
Our newly-renovated, modern coffee shop provides the prefect backdrop for you and your family to relax.
Our Montessori-style play area ensures that you can enjoy our delicious food whilst your children happily play.
Here’s what some of our lovely customers have to say about us:
we attended a Baptism afternoon tea today the venue was beautiful. lovely open space with simple decor but made it perfect, my son loved the kids play area stocked with lots of tous for different ages. the staff were really friendly and attentive. the food (sandwiches and cakes) was lovey. beautiful fluffy bread and well filled sandwiches. highly recommend for an event.

We recently had my little boy's 3rd birthday party at Bear and Eden and it was perfect. We hired the venue for a few hours on Sunday morning so we had the whole place to ourselves. The staff were brilliant and the kids picnic boxes and ice cream were a hit. Gemma was my contact and she managed all the details for me as well as putting up the balloons I had bought. The beautiful themed cake was made by the lovely Laura who works there too. All the kids had an amazing time as well as the parents who could relax and drink coffee... I did get my own entertainment SOUND RIGHT PHONICS which also kept the kids entertained for an hour. Definitely recommend to anyone with young children. It took the pressure off completely and I could enjoy it too. Big thank you to all the team there who made my little boys party so special x

I recently came to Bear & Eden with my 8 month old as I like to check out play cafes and I wasn’t disappointed! Due to not seeing a message (thanks 3yr old!) I ended up there on my own but felt completely welcomed by the staff and looked after. The toy area was lovely with tables near so you can keep an eye on the little ones, the food was yummy with a great selection for adult & kids. I even took some carrot cake home with me.. wow it was amazing! I’ll definitely be back again soon x

As parents we’ve struggled to find places to go to that served both quality food and provided a place for our boys to play. It has been our dream to run our own coffee shop for years. So when the opportunity arose in Stansted Mountfitchet we jumped at the chance.
We named Bear & Eden after our two little boys Teddy and Rex. Teddy’s nickname is Bear and Rex’s middle name is Eden.
