You moms all know this, Winnipeg needs a kid friendly coffee shop, and that is what Chris of Lil' Crickets is trying to do!!
It will be a totally family friendly coffee shop, with a play area for the kids, playhouse, train set, craft table - the works!! Play area at the back, and mommies and daddies relaxing in the front drinking coffee (and keeping an eye on the kids, of course!!) It's geared for kids 6 and under....sounds like a dream to me!!! And all toddler friendly!!! There will be yummy coffees and teas for the parents, and for the kids fruit cups, bagels etc!! I can picture it in my head already, and can't wait for it to open!!
They were hoping to open in January, but are still in the fundraising stage (final, i hope!) and here's where we can all help...they are actually doing snow removal in Transcona to raise money for the opening, so if you, or anyone you know needs snow removal anywhere in that area, contact Chris at 918-1500 and mention the blog and save 10%!!! Pass this info on, and hopefully by next summer we can all meet at Lil' Crickets, chitchat, drink some coffee and not have to worry about the kids getting burned by coffee,running into tables, and the many other embarassments of trying to relax at a coffee shop with a toddler.
