Has this ever happened to you? You are trying to make brunch plans with a friend. Every place she suggests leaves you agonizing over the following; will there be space for your stroller? will you get anything but dirty looks from the other patrons? will there be a change table in the bathroom? will the establishment have high chairs? will there be anything on the menu that your child will eat that isn't deep fried? how off-put will your friend be if you just suggest coffee at your place like always? If any of this is familiar than you might very well appreciate what's coming next: a restaurant with a healthy menu available in both adult and kids sizes and where all of the conveniences a parent could desire are met. And that includes a play area.

Welcome to the blog for JJ Kai's. It's a restaurant. Well, it's not a restaurant yet, but IT WILL BE!

A friend and myself were talking about the need for a restaurant where adults could sit and relax and have a decent, healthy meal while their children played nearby or ate comfortably. A place where there were no dirty looks. A place, in short, that doesn't really exist. So we've decided to stop just talking about it and open this place. Join us on our journey!

A little about us. Davina has two children, Avon and Jazmyn and a husband Donovan. She hails most recently from Vancouver, BC (where many of these types of restaurants exist, by the way). Tera has a son named Kai and a partner, Duff (yes, like the beer on the Simpsons).

We are just at the beginning of this adventure. Right now we need a business plan, a bunch of loans, a location (we're looking around Dundas and Dufferin and if anyone has any ideas, we'd appreciate them!) and a prayer.

Follow us and see how this all unfolds.
