We’d like to introduce ourselves, we are Amy and Zoe. We both met in York just over two years ago when a mutual friend introduced us and we went on a sort of blind date at York Cocoa House and immediately hit it off. It was during that first meet up whilst trying to entertain Amy’s 3 year old, post chocolate rush, that we spoke about the need for a children’s play cafe in the centre of York. A place carers of young children could go to enjoy quality time with their kids, meet other parents all whilst enjoying fabulous food and drink – especially coffee and cake!
A seed was sown and the rest as they say is history. Zoe is now also a mum and has a day job in event management while Amy has had baby number two and has an alter ego as an Early Years Teacher. Together we have been beavering away on the idea through the fug of taking care of a baby and a toddler for nearly a year and very proudly launched Dinosaurs Love Fairy Cakes at the end of April 2018.
This is just the start of our Roarsome play cafe in the centre of York, but until we find a regular location for our (and we hope your) dream play cafe we have been hosting some wonderful events, including the very popular Craft’o’Saurus Creative hour during the Burning Duck comedy festival; which naturally included Dinosaur life drawing!
New Breakfast Club
On Tuesday 17th July we’re starting a brand new event aimed at anyone in the first year of parenthood and their babies! The Babes In Arms Breakfast Club will run from 9am – 11am at Spark* York on Piccadilly.
For the ticket price of £5 we will give you a total winning start to your day by serving up some excellent breakfast treats, helping you meet other people who are brilliant (yet tired and covered in unidentified stains) and we’ll be doing things, and inviting guests which can teach and inspire you in things that are both fun and useful for you and your baby. We promise we will never invite anyone along to run a session who will try to sell you their stuff, because who needs that after no sleep!? Amy has also created lots of gorgeous treasure baskets for your little one to play with and discover the world whilst you relax, eat, drink and get to know one another.
You can get your tickets for the breakfast club on the eventbrite link HERE.
If you’d like to follow us on this adventure and keep an eye out for more events, pop up cafes and news, (we’ve lots planned!) you can find us on Facebook and Instagram under Dinosaurs Love Fairy Cakes and Twitter @cakeOsaur. You can also request to join our mailing list by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope to meet lots of you very soon. Until then we wish you all lots of Roars and Sprinkles!
