#10 – Snakes & Lattes

Snakes & Lattes is a board game cafe here in Toronto.  It’s been super popular since opening a couple years ago, and is even the basis for a new sitcom.   For whatever reason, I was sort of dreading this one; I didn’t expect it to be very baby friendly (all the ways I was wrong about that below), and we aren’t really board game people.  It’s not that we don’t enjoy certain games, it’s just that both of us are so unbelievably competitive that the resulting conflict is never worth it.

But on the list it went, and so off we went this morning to knock it off (let’s take a moment to marvel that I’m posting about it hours afterwards, rather than weeks/months; I’m certainly patting myself on the back quite smugly right now).

The space was much more spacious than it looks like outside; the coffees were good, and the game selection was  overwhelming.  Since we had Henry in tow, we stuck with the children’s section and played Hungry Hungry Hippos, Trouble and Jolly Octopus (which unfortunately didn’t work).  Henry loved Hungry Hippos, and got bored during Trouble (fair enough).   The cafe was much more baby-friendly than I expected; they have highchairs; large, accessible, all gender washrooms with change tables and baby/kid friendly menu items.  While Henry was definitely too young to really get into the games, there were a number of families there with young children.

Overall a really fun experience and we would go back!
