(work in progress)

Should you be in the area, its always important to know where to get a good babychino.

The quality of a babychino (according to my 3 year old) is based on three elements:

  1. Foam to Milk Ratio – the more foam the better the chino is scored.
  2. Sprinkles – either cocoa, cinnamon or actual sprinkles (naturally a combination of the two scores extremely highly)
  3. marshmellows – no marshies means low score

We have tried hundreds of chinos but the quality of the chino and whether it makes this list is based on:

  • if it scores highly against my son’s criteria;
  • if  they are accommodating to kids; and
  • if there is something I will have too.

This list under each category is alphabetical and will be updated as we go along on our adventures.
