Cafe 118 Restaurant with the Kids

I decided to take the kids to Cafe 118 this week as a treat, seeing how I had a nice $25 off coupon from  (Thanks Patience!)   I've only taken the kids to have a smoothie, not a sit down meal, so they were excited about it.

I let the kids pick what they what they wanted but the rule was we had to be under $50.  So here's what we got to share between the three of us:

Spiced Macadamia Hummus
Sundried Tomato and herb flax Crackers

Mexican Chopped Salad
Spinach, Sweet Corn, Avocado, Corn Chips, Cherry Tomato, and "Queso Blanco" crumbles

Pad Thai
Zucchini and Carrot "noodles", tossed in Pad Thai Sauce, Drizzled with Sesame Cashew Glaze

 Cinnamon graham cracker with a cashew creme filling topped with cocoa sauce

The only thing they enjoyed was the hummus and the salad. Everything else was either "too spicy" or "didn't taste right". The Pad Thai was way spicier than what I like so of course it was too spicy for them. I should have asked about that, but now I know.   I also forgot to ask for the dressing on the salad to be on the side- it was too much oil.  Well seeing how we don't use oil at home, anything with oil in it is too much.

If you have tried Cafe 118 with your kids, what menu items did they like?  Post in the comments below!

I bet they had fun even though they didn't like everything. Sometimes it's the experience. :)

Yes, they enjoyed eating somewhere "fancy" and sitting outside in the nice weather :)
