It’s time for another Aloha Friday, the day that you take it easy and look forward to the weekend, in Hawaii and blog land anyway. As you should know by now, over at An Island Life, Kailani decided that on Fridays she would take it easy on posting and ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link at An Island Life’s blog. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

So my friend Stephanie has a business idea – and she’s looking for opinions and advice, being new to the world of business – I thought this would be the perfect chance to help her out and get some opinions from her target audience – you (most likely)! Anyway here’s her idea, in her words, edited slightly for clarity…

“Do you think a “mom and me cafe” would take off as a business? It’s a cafe where moms and dads can take their kids to have a cup of coffee with other moms and dads and their kids can play in a safe environment. There would be parent only events at night such as scrap booking nights- and family nights as well… during the day, one day a week, there could be a play group, etc.”

    I think it sounds like a fabulous idea! I know that I would have loved somewhere like that when I had young children.

    Your friend would have to hire babysitters and baristas but it sounds great! 😉

    These types of places already exist in some areas of the country already. I have seen them on television programs on TLC. I think they are a great idea. Research on your area, where to advertise, a good location are all going to be crucial. I know I love the idea. Best of luck to your friend.

    I think it sounds like a great idea. I don’t drink coffee but I used to love going to places where my little ones could play & I could enjoy some adult company.

    I wish her well in this endeavor.

    I don’t have little ones anymore so I feel like I’m not current enough to know what parents will and won’t do these days.

    Target audience is important. You may want to widen it since kids are that small for a short time. Just my opinion.
    Have a great Friday!

    I’m not the target audience since I don’t have kids but I think it sounds like a great idea! If I did have kids, I would definitely love a place like that!

    Sounds awesome to me! Anyplace where hubs and I could go and the kids be watched on site is a good idea to me. 🙂
