Haley Cakes & Cookies - A Hip Bakery With Instagram Worthy Yumminess

Haley Cakes & Cookies - A Hip Bakery With Instagram Worthy Yumminess

I went to Snooze for lunch with my kiddos and if you have not been to Snooze I highly recommend.    As you wait for a table a Snooze (and waits can be long) there is a new bakery next door called Haley Cakes and Cookies.   This bakery sells coffees, teas, cupcakes and cookies.  We grabbed a few and sat down and tired these delicious treats.  


This one was a must we tried the cookie dough cupcake and yes that is cookie dough as icing.


My little one wanted a Hula Girl sugar cookie. 

 Haley Cakes make cookies, cakes and cupcakes for any occasion.  They will match or customize any invitation or design can think of.   So go try them today or custom order some for you next event.  You will not be disappointed.

Epic Fun has opened in South West Austin.  It is a local family owned business and man are there a lot of things to do.

You can have birthday Parties there.  We have already been to one of them.  They have private party rooms and yummy pizza and house made gourmet sticky buns.   Check out there menu here.  Did I mention you order drink wine and good draft beer there too.   What other kids indoor party and play place has that. 


At Epic Climb they have a set of very cool and challenging climbing walls. 


 

My little one loves these ride on car rides.   There is a giant arcade you can load money onto a card and play video and interactive games like skee ball, basket ball, video games and air hockey.   Some games win "virtual" tickets which can be used to get prizes from the prize wall.  Epic Time Freak is a simon says electronic game. 


There are 4 lanes of mini bowling.  


Epic Fun Factory is a multi level playground with balls and slides.   This was definitely my kids favorite activity they spent hours in this thing.  There are couches next to it where you can see your kids and enjoy some snacks while your kids play.  Epic Fun Factory requires socks and they can be purchased at the front desk but try and remember to bring your own. 

 

The Sky Trails kids and adults can clip in an ropes course over the arcade area.   Note: Epic Sky Trails requires closed toe shoes and has a height requirement of 48”


Epic Spin has these fun spinning bumper cars. 

Epic Combat - the laser tag area was not yet open when we went but I am sure we will be back to check out that area once completed.
