A new, kid-friendly café comes to the Annex
Red Fish Blue Fish Creative Café caters to the mom, dad and tot crowd, giving parents with squirmy preschoolers a spot to sip lattes without eliciting cut-eye from the laptop-toting coffeehouse contingent. For kids, there’s a big arts-and-crafts table, bookshelves crammed with rainbow-coloured pipe cleaners and glitter glue, and a menu of healthy snacks, including oatmeal, applesauce and carrot sticks with hummus. Baked goods from Desmond and Beatrice and light lunch options, like cucumber soup, make the place adult-friendly too, as does the sunny back patio. An upstairs event space hosts family yoga and other community programs.
