The infamous Babycino, whether you have to pay $1.50 for one or you get it for free, there seems to be something magical about a bit of milk froth a sprinkle of chocolate…..kids love them!
If it brings a smile to my daughter’s face and gives me 10 minutes of peace to drink my cappuccino I am all for them! A big pat on the back to the cafe owner who invented them!
The trouble is, not all people seem to have the same opinion as me on these special kiddy drinks.
Whilst enjoying my usual morning coffee I had these two women sitting near me start complaining loudly about the concept of a Babycino (or were they speaking directly about me?)!
I had to do a double take to ensure I heard correctly, yep……they had some very heated opinions of a toddler drinking a Babycino!
“Oh those stupid Babycinos are just instilling a cafe culture into these kids! By the time they are 10 years old they’ll be wanting a ‘grande double shot, skim, mochachino!’ ”
Ummmmm didn’t these women get the memo about Babycinos being a little bit of milk and some chocolate?
Seriously, a cafe culture?
Even if it was true, would there really be any harm? There are surely worse things for kids to get involved in, drugs, alcohol, crime! Will we be heard to say in years to come “Oh no, I found out my kid hangs at the local cafe…maybe he is having a macchiato!!!”
Since caffeine is a drug, and maybe these women need to lay off it. Heaven forbid if these women got wind of the fact that in Double Bay, ‘Puppycinos‘ are all the rage!
Long live the Babycino, keeping mums and bubs happy for years to come!
Do you order a Babycino for your kids when you’re having a coffee? Do you think the women I overheard had a point?
