Why Parents should have all the fun!!! Especially when parents take their kids for shopping in a mall and they have nothing to do other then wait and get bored or otherwise either of the parent has to take care of the kids and other goes for shopping. Being a father of two daughters I face this kind of situation very often.
Kids get dragged in all this shopping spree. But now it has a solution where kids can enjoy their activity while either of the parent can relax, keep a watch while sipping a coffee or fresh juice. This sounds so good plan!
212 All day cafe has come up with ‘212 Junior’ with a concept, We were invited for the launch of 212 Junior along with my Daughters Samia (10 yes old) and Syna (4.5yrs old) For further details read ahead:
The kid-friendly café with a seating capacity of 40 guests, is located at the atrium of Lower Ground floor and doubles up as a haven for parents and an entertainment zone for their juniors. It’s the ideal spot for a quick meal after a family shopping session or a full-of- drama movie.
HOW WAS 212 JUNIOR CONCEPTUALIZED?
Talking about the concept, Romil Ratra, Group Director says, “A café with an in-built kids area is a concept that is quite popular in the west and is slowly picking up momentum in Asian countries as well. When it comes to India, this segment is still being explored. After a careful study of the footfalls in the mall and an in-depth market research, we conceptualized this one-of-its kind space in Pune which is not only appreciated by the adults but also by kids. The philosophy is simple: Treat kids as adults. Give them their space and let them enjoy while you enjoy solitude. The best part is, you don’t have to break a sweat running behind your kid.”
Gone are the days when kids used to let parents dictate their food preferences. In an era where Nickelodeon is replaced by PlayStation, the little ones like to have control over what they’re eating. Chef Paul Kinny has curated a menu that will appeal to not just the little one but also adults. The food at 212 Junior goes hand in hand with the philosophy as well as space – simple yet vibrant & colorful.
The menu features cookies, croissants and donuts right out of the bakery. Yes, you can expect the addictive fragrance of freshly baked items! Chef Paul has also added a Choco-Berry Cronut – An innovative combination that came into the world when a donut married a croissant. The savory section features cheesy pizza squares, stuffed croissants, loaded hot dogs and more. One of it deserves a special mention and that’s the Pokemon Burger made using a chicken patty, lettuce, tomatoes and cheese. It’s shaped like your kid’s favorite Pokemon – Pikachu. 212 Junior completely gets every ones love for the sugar rush and that is evident by their dessert menu which includes S’mores Sandwich – two gooey choco cookies filled with marshmallows and almonds, a colorful Rainbow Cake, an éclair with a tiramisu center and much more.
BEVERAGES AT 212 Junior
From healthy smoothies to indulgent milkshakes, 212 Junior has it all. Going to a restaurant with a kid is not everyone’s cup of tea but at 212 Junior it can be your cup of tea as well as your cup of coffee. Now parents can sit and enjoy their cup of solitude while their kids are occupied with some brain-stimulating games and puzzles in the kid section made especially for them.
WHAT CAN ONE EXPECT AT 212 JUNIOR?
212 Junior understands the importance of family time. Staying true to the brand’s philosophy, the venue will organize events which does not only cater to kids but also to adults. Now while your kid is making best out of waste you can learn origami. While your kid attends an Enid Blyton book reading, you can simultaneously attend a book reading of well-known Indian authors. 212 Junior will also be organizing events where both the parents and the kids can participate together; Cook with your dad, 212 quiz contest etc.
My Daughters experience with the overall concept of 212 Junior:
Samia says that it was fun filled experience right from moment we entered, we started with our Hair Braiding, and then the most enjoyable activity was the Canvas Painting. We like the food as well, as it was yummy and served in an attractive way”. Syna liked her drawings and as well some finger licking Donuts. She had a good time while getting herself a nice Tattoo very similar to her mom.
Overall it was a chilled out time for the father and daughters.
Thank you #carpediempune for the invite.
