Smock Cafe and Wonder Workshop
The end of school doesn’t mean the end of your beloved adult time and morning coffee run. It’s about to get even better.
Introducing Roncesvalles’ latest addition: Smock Cafe and Wonder Workshop. This family-friendly cafe is all kid with a side of parent.
Hanging paper airplanes made of maps, an apothecary-inspired craft area with enough supplies to make any artist swoon, a wooden marble run that will have you taking turns with the kids, and a comfy reading nook for those in need of a little downtime all make this a creative oasis not to be missed.
Grab a latte and select from the mouth-watering menu of sandwiches and baked goods made from organic, locally-grown ingredients. Need some uninterrupted time to yourself? No problem. Send the kids to the craft corner where they can learn new skills and adorn creations with the help of an in-house instructor (for just $8).
And yes, there’s more. Smock Cafe offers a variety of summer courses for kids ages 4 to 11, including Foodie Fun, ShutterBugs, Campanimation and much more. They also do birthday parties, complete with crafts, drinks, snacks, balloons and of course an abundance of creativity!
It’s a beautiful mess with no clean up required.
Let them make a mess at one of these 7 Creative Spaces in Toronto.
