There are a range of activities throughout the Aroma Coffee and Chocolate Festival.
BABYCCINOS KIDS CAFÉ
Whilst adults enjoy the many coffee offerings at the Festival, there’s still plenty of activities for the kids to do as well. The Babyccinos Kid’s Cafe is a dedicated space for kids to relax, make friends and enjoy a variety of games. This year we have a new activity where kids will be able to colour their own keepsake Aroma coffee cup.
This year Maitland Aroma will feature the wonderful new addition of The Brownie Bar, hosted by The Cunning Culinarian.
As part of the Babyccino’s Cafe, kid’s and adults will have the opportunity to personalise one of the Cunning Culinarian’s brownies for just a gold coin donation. There will be lots of treats to choose from including marshmallows, popcorn, lollies and sprinkles.
