Loving Dad Plays Food Critic to Baby Daughter’s Play Kitchen, Supports Local Black Business

Christopher Kyle just wanted to put up a funny, cute Instagram post about his daughter’s restaurant. He didn’t know the internet would explode with enthusiasm for his and his daughter’s creativity. You might be confused, but we’ll try to explain it a little bit better. You see, his daughter didn’t open a real restaurant. In fact, she didn’t open a restaurant at all because she’s only 18 months old. Kyle posted an adorable photo of his daughter standing beside a play kitchen, adorned in an apron and chef hat while he sat in a comically small chair at an equally comically tiny table with a jokingly bored look on his face.

Why did he look bored? Well, he says it all in the very honest review below the photo. “So I tried to support another Black Owned Business for lunch today,” he begins. “It’s called Ava’s Kitchen, just opened end of April. It’s a very clean establishment, but whewww let me tell you about this owner.”

So I tried to support another Black Owned Business for lunch today. It’s called Ava’s Kitchen, just opened end of April. It’s a very clean establishment, but whewww let me tell you about this owner. First off, I asked why there are balloons on my chair, and it’s not my birthday? She talm’bout, mind yah business; those are Mommy’s. I been waiting on my order to get done for 45 minutes, and I’m the only customer here. She was making good progress at first, then she stopped for 20 minutes to go watch Paw Patrol. Overall the customer service could be better, but the cook is a cutie; so I’ll give her another chance. Let’s not give up on Black businesses so fast after one mistake. 💕

Oh boy, if this was a Yelp review, this wouldn’t look for good for the owner of this so-called Ava’s Kitchen. Luckily, it’s just a dad having fun with his daughter. He continues: “First off, I asked why there are balloons on my chair, and it’s not my birthday?” This is when the pint-sized owned told him to mind his business as they belonged to mommy and not him. Ouch.

But, things got worse for the hungry patron. He adds, “I been waiting on my order to get done for 45 minutes, and I’m the only customer here. She was making good progress at first, then she stopped for 20 minutes to go watch Paw Patrol.” We’re not in the hospitality industry, but that’s not how we’d run our business.

Don’t worry, it wasn’t all bad for Ava’s Kitchen. “Overall, the customer service could be better, but the cook is a cutie; so I’ll give her another chance. Let’s not give up on Black businesses so fast after one mistake,” the proud papa said.
