SOCKS ARE REQUIRED in the playspace (both parents and kids). If you forget, we sell them in our cafe for $2.

Little Beans is an indoor playspace for kids and family café offering an imaginative playspace for all ages. Our Little Beans Playspace includes an imaginative village and age-appropriate toys great for kids 0-6 years. Our café boasts a delicious assortment of specialty coffee drinks, sandwiches, and snacks where parents can enjoy the ambiance of our comfortable café with their tiny tots. At Little Beans, kids have the freedom to play, learn, imagine and create in our custom indoor playgrounds. Open play, camps, classes, events, parties, and workshops are all offered at both Little Beans locations with fun for both kids and adults. We are truly a destination that is fun for the whole family.

Little Beans isn’t just another place to play, it’s an indoor playspace place your kids will beg you to stay. Please note that parents must stay on the premises while the kids are in the playspace and that socks are required and will be sold at our coffee bar should you forget.
