How glad am I that Bean Sprouts Cafe is finally open? I love that Seattle finally has a place totally food-minded for our little two-legged friends. (Yes, we’ve had doggie bakeries for years, but I think this is the first of its kind solely for kids!) As we watched it being built I wasn’t sure what to expect:
But on Bumbershoot weekend we heard a little gong-sound in Seattle Center and toodled over to see. It was open!!! I really wanted my guys to try the turkey flower shaped sandwich, and they didn’t have the piano-shaped sunflower butter sandwich that day, but Leelee had his heart set on a wazzle: A cheese-y pizza made with a waffle and I couldn’t sway him. It came with a choice of sides: fruit or hummus or couscous or something. It wasn’t really up to me- Leelee sauntered up to the child-sized counter and pointed out what he wanted from the colorful picture menu. And he was so proud.
We had a sample of chocolate hummus and rang some-kind of gong thing for trying a new food. It’s a little gimmicky but I love how this place celebrates healthy eating, being adventurous and helping kids become independent. And apparently they’re even making a play cafe in the Children’s Museum so the kids can pretend they’re making Beansprouts food. So now I have way too many options when I eat at Seattle Center and so do the guys. Beansprouts, I wish you best of luck! (Again, why couldn’t this have been around when the duo was in its baby stage. I saw they even have baby food on their menu. So cool. Baby mommas rejoice!)
