While kids and teenagers on the ground floor whirl around the self-serve candy bar, minutes away from a sugar coma, upstairs is a bright, pastel haven where you and your little ones can sit in giant life-sized cupcake booths (excellent privacy for nursing mothers) and chug down sweet candy-themed cocktails from the bar. Savoury food is limited to pizza and build-your-own deluxe peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (add-ins include things like rice krispie treats, so this isn’t your typical sandwich). Their speciality is, of course, desserts, so be prepared for a sugar-high pretty much as soon as you walk in the door.
Stroller storage: No – but there is plenty of room for strollers to wheel around or sit at your table with you.
Easy access: Yes – an elevator to the 2nd floor where the cafe is housed.
Change tables: Yes.
Kids’ menu: No – but most older kids will eat pretty much anything on the menu. Ice-cream – hello?
Kid-friendly rating: ♥♥♥♥♥
