A Celebration of Friendship at Snakes and Lattes Board Game Cafe

Julie and I met in a line-up (at this event), clicked over shared interests, kept in touch on-line and became friends. That meeting was three years ago, so last week we went out for our friendiversary!

At her suggestion we went to the Snakes and Lattes Board Game Cafe, located at 489 College Street at Markham. If you know the area, it's where Andy Poolhall used to be.

There, for a flat rate of $5 each, we had unlimited access to pretty well any board game we'd ever heard of, plus a whole bunch that we hadn't.

In addition to the games, they had an appealing list of snacks and drinks. We shared a platter of pita triangles with a variety of toppings and a cheese plate. To drink I had Cider and Julie, being pregnant and due to have a baby boy soon, had sparkling water and a hot chocolate. The service was friendly and the food delicious.


We ended up playing three different games - the first called Sixes that the resident Gamemaster recommended, the second the word game Boggle, and the third the dice game Yahtzee.

As you can see from these photos, the place is huge. Even so, it was quite packed on this Thursday evening -- not so crowded that you had to wait for a table but crowded enough to see that the idea to get friends together for a board game or two is very popular indeed.

We were so into the games that we completely lost track of time, and when we finally checked it was well past time to head home. We had a blast!

Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you have a great weekend!
