    Lucy in the Sky Cafe

    Looking for a  vegetarian choice for your kids? Hidden amongst the many vendors and restaurants on busy Wilson Street is a multicolored art cafe with a complete vegetarian menu. The owners of the cafe initially wanted a small space to display their little art pieces; only after collecting more years of experience did they have the confidence to open the cafe. We are very thankful that they made this decision.

Jose came up with the name ‘Puzzle’, the perfect description for a cozy escape brimming with love for people of all types and abilities. Kids, regardless of condition, can enjoy the delicious food stacked by Jose himself, while they view the arts and crafts designed by artists with autism.

    Genki Sushi

    What makes dining at a Japanese restaurant so satisfying is the colour, taste, and variety in their food.

Have your kids select from the touchscreen some quick and delicious sushi, then follow it up with some rice bowls. Guide your kids through the ordering process as it can get really confusing!
