But then, all of a sudden, the Kinder Café closed down. To say I was disappointed is an understatement. Trust me, having my toddler and preschooler run amok in a busy Tim Hortons while the elderly patrons cluck their tongues at me DOES NOT have the same appeal as the Kinder Café. And might I mention that Tim Hortons doesn’t have a bouncy castle? And might I ALSO mention that moms need coffee the way a car needs gasoline? No coffee/gasoline – NO FUNCTION. What was I going to do?
But then suddenly one day, while I scrolled through my Facebook feed, I saw a chat string on a local baby swap site saying that a new version of the Kinder Café had opened practically in my back yard! To say I was excited is an understatement – on my next day off, I packed up the littles and off we went to this new play café – called Fiona’s Playdate Cafe, located at 104 -6820 188th Street in the Clayton area of Surrey.
Admission is reasonable - $5.50 per child, and crawling babies are free. The also offer the following:
• a baby play area, library nook, chalk wall and climbing structures
• a very reasonably priced food menu, including Panini’s, kids meals, salads and specialty coffees
• Private event options for birthday parties, baby showers and other special events
• Registered programs such as mom and baby yoga, stroller fit, family story time and parenting ____classes from Miss Behaviour, a local parenting coach and consultant.
• Plus much more!
My littles and I spent about 2 hours at Fiona’s Playdate café, upon which I was able to have some fun with my girls in a safe and interactive environment, as well as enjoy a hot cup of coffee and read some of my book. In my mothering opinion, that is a successful day!
I’d highly recommend visiting Fiona’s Playdate Café, and I only anticipate it’s going to get busier as the colder months roll in.Visit www.fionasplaydatecafe.ca or call 604-372-3364 for more information.
