Who’s The Best? The Company That Made These Coffee Lids, That’s Who!

I got to spend some Daddy time with the kids this week and we decided to go to our favourite local coffee shop, the Sippy Cup Cafe, to hang out. This particular shop is cool because one half is a fancier coffee shop and the other is a children’s play area. The kids love it and the staff and owner are great, so it’s a win-win for us.

This week, there was something different about the coffee cup lids. The employees had handwritten different positive messages on every single coffee lid and while it took me a few minutes to fully appreciate it, I really liked the small touch and good vibe it added to my day. As you can see above, my cup was obviously a “meant to be” situation.

It’s tough for small shops like this to differentiate themselves, but these guys impressed me on this day by offering something that the others don’t; a personal touch. It just goes to show that you don’t always have to break the bank to impress people. Sometimes, just adding a laugh to someone’s day is enough.

Keep Up The Great Work, Sippy Cup Cafe!

Cheers!

    Sounds cool. I like the play area idea. It would be nice if some shops around here were like that instead of dedicating just a single corner with some children’s books and one kid’s chair.

      This place is great. They have a whole pirate ship structure, a reading area and they also hire characters to come and do storybook readings. Very cool idea.

    That’s such a great idea! I love supporting small business, and especially small business that involves me leaving with my drug of choice coursing through my veins.

    And no joke, I wanted to open a cafe just like that, once upon a time. And then I had three kids. And now I’m a writer. The end. (That sounded a lot more sad than I meant it, honest.)

    OBVIOUSLY they kept that lid just for you. Mine would have said “Know what you’re going to do? Spill this all over your car and then swear a lot, that what.”

      Oh man, I forgot to put in the best part of the story!! I think I’ll do up a new post for that one but thanks for reminding me! PS – I totally agree about supporting local and small businesses. There’s such a great community of owners out there, just waiting to impress us.

    I would LOVE to have a cafe around here with a kids’ area! It would be so awesome not to have to grab a coffee through the drive-thru only.

    The hand written messages are a fantastic touch.
