Little Beans Café and Big Beans Family Activity Center is an imaginative playspace and recreational center for kids 0-12 years. We offer open drop-in play for kids 0-5 years in Little Beans and for kids 4-12 years in Big Beans.
We offer drop-in play, preschool, classes, events, camps, birthday parties and more. The Little Beans Café is a warm space for families to gather and enjoy delicious yet healthy food and drink options. At Little Beans, kids have the freedom to play, learn, imagine and create in our custom interactive indoor playgrounds. While children enjoy the kid’s indoor playground and parents enjoy a coffee or drink, Little Beans Cafe truly proves to be a destination that is fun for the whole family!
Please note that parents must stay on the premises while the kids are in the playspace and socks are required and will be sold at our coffee bar in case you forget to bring them.
Little Beans Café was founded in 2010 as a family destination for kids and parents/caregivers to play. Our goal is to provide a safe and fun environment for the kids and a comfortable place for adults to hang out with other parent friends and have a good cup of coffee and meal.
After having kids of my own in Chicago, I wanted to create a place where I would want to go to enjoy my time as much as my kids. With so many options for kids, we wanted Little Beans to be a community destination with play, food, events, classes, camp and workshops that would be fun for kids AND the parents/caregivers alike. We always try and keep the adult's enjoyment in mind with creating our programming and the look and feel of our facilities. As a brother-sister team, we truly enjoy seeing so many amazing families play together and we love being part of the Chicago family community.
