Fantastic, Baby! provides sanitizer and masks and diligently disinfects. There is no outdoor seating.
Fantastic, Baby! is your one-stop shop for all things K-beauty, K-pop and birthday.
You can make a bee line through the store grabbing a card, gift, mini cake and candles all in one sweep, plus reward yourself with a coffee for being so efficient.
The shop is as whimsical as its name, pastel-coloured with a small seating area at the back.
You're immediately greeted by Mochichi, a stuffed mascot of Fantastic, Baby!'s own design.
This table is flanked by the K-beauty section, stocked with all kinds of different adorable products the staff as well as printout info will be happy to inform you about.
LOHN coconut wax candles cost a pretty penny, over $20 even for smaller sizes, but they're locally made, look sleek and smell amazing.
Yellow Owl Workshop and Halifax Paper Hearts also make gift cards stocked here. The Yellow Owl ones ($12) even come with pins, so they're like a card and gift in one.
Mochichi isn't the only stuffed animal in here: there are also Gudetama backpacks ($45) and teddy bears ($30.35).
A shelf stocked with K-pop looks like it's filled with books at first glance, the packaging is so luxe and elaborate. K-pop is playing in the store, and the staff especially recommend group NCT 127.
Japanese tableware of varying price points includes chopstick rests, sauce bowls and Kutani ware.
Artisanal pastries ($6.95) made on site using organic eggs, flour and cream include the Sentimental: apple mousse, apple jam and apple cake with walnuts, a crispy caramel layer and caramel glaze.
The bear-shaped Me and You is particularly Insta-worthy, a black forest mousse cake of chocolate mousse, cherry, raspberry and chocolate cake.
The Mochichi layers white chocolate and strawberry mousse with a strawberry gelee and sponge base for a punchy but creamy creation.
Mini cakes ($20) include a sublime chocolate cake with a caramel layer and mascarpone icing.
Coffee is provided by local roaster Propeller, but drinks don't stop at ordinary lattes ($4.25).
Strawberry milk bubble tea ($6) is all natural, made without any powders using house strawberry puree for lots of pure berry flavour, organic milk and boba mixed with house brown sugar syrup made using Taiwanese brown sugar.
A Dalgona coffee ($5) isn't the whipped Internet trend variety, but rather is topped with house dalgona candy.
A pantry section stocks snacks and cup noodles.
