I feel like every mom with a baby deserves to have a baby-friendly hangout to spend time with other mommas and their babes while on mat leave. My favourite little restaurant/playplace for wee ones that I spent time at while on mat leave with Andrew unfortunately closed, leaving me with no go-to.
Fortunately for me, I was introduced to Cupcake Goodness by another lovely momma and fellow blogger. She hosted weekly mommy meet-ups at Cupcake Goodness, and I quickly realized why. It is a cute and cozy little shop with comfy chairs and delicious food. What really makes this little shop a gem is the owner Carla. She encourages customers to come in with their kids and spend time there, and even has play mats and toys to entertain the toddlers and preschoolers while we are there. When I have gone in on a quiet day, she has even set up a chair behind the counter so Andrew could sit and watch tv when he wanted to take a play break and munch on his cupcake.
Tuesday quickly became my favourite day of the week. Why, you ask? Because it’s Toonie Tuesday at Cupcake Goodness! All the cupcakes are $2 (even gluten-free)! If you’re not a cupcake fan (if you’re not, I’ll be honest and say that we probably won’t ever be friends), there are tons of other baked goods, such as cake pops, tarts, loaves…and they are all equally delicious. There are tons of hot and cold drink options (my favourite is the vanilla latte – Carla makes all the syrups for the drinks!). The cupcakes are all ah-maz-ing, and she has a standard list of flavours that are available all the time, as well as seasonal flavours:
- Luscious Vanilla
- Deep Dark Chocolate
- Cookies & Cream
- Chocolate Cookies & Cream
- Vanilla Salted Caramel (my personal favourite!)
- Chocolate Salted Caramel
- Birthday Cake
- Lemon Drop
- Red Velvet
- Chocolate Coconut
- Chocolate Peanut Butter
- Extreme Vanilla Bean
- Vanilla Cherry Chip
