Where are we going today?

Café O’Play combines the best of a traditional coffeehouse with an indoor playground specifically designed for children up to 6 years of age.

Separated from the indoor playground, Café O’Play’s traditional coffeehouse offers a relaxing experience for all patrons. Sit near the fireplace and enjoy a fresh cup of Caps Coffee.

In the Indoor Playground, children have access to a safe, secure and clean environment that includes just under 1,000 square feet of play area. Guardians are able to enjoy fresh, healthy, local and organic foods and beverages while supervising their children as they play.

Café O’Play is proud to be the only coffeehouse providing patrons with Caps Coffee. Caps is a locally roasted, fair trade organic coffee.

We are also pleased to offer fresh baked goods and quality foods such as soups, sandwiches and dips. We proudly serve organic and locally grown foods whenever possible.

    The first time I had been here, it was a Saturday morning in the winter and alright save for the bullies against my then 14 month old daughter. 2nd time: This was a good place for a playdate since we live in Stony and our friends live in Sherwood Park. We got there at 10am on Saturday. There were plenty of parents and kids entering the building... but when we got in, we were quickly asked if we were invited to someone's birthday (no) and told that in that case they were closed. Their hours are only meant for stay at home moms, since they're only...Read More

    I have taken my son here around 4 times now and each time I keep saying “it will get better”. Well it has not. Worst experiences ever. Its not the children’s fault at all. Let me clarify this 1st. Children are only products of their parents and I believe the parents that call this place home are the issue.

    Each time I go, kids are pushing each other and being mean, while the inattentive mom updates her status on Facebook, stairs into oblivion and takes selfies of herself at hash tag“isuckasaparent”. Grab your child and teach them not...Read More

    Went today and will never go again. Unfortunately this is supposed to be a place for little kids, but it ends up being where everyone takes their kids when they are sick or skipping school or something. My 1 year old was going to get demolished by kids running up slides, ramming into one another with cars, etc. It's like a horror moving staring small children.

    My daughter always leaves happy and tired. I am a regular at Cafe O'Play because of the great food and the environment. Definitely not a tacky plastic hell. My daughter loves those play structures. Place is super clean and the staff are always so accommodating. Worth more than the $5/kid, which is much lower than their counterparts in other cities. An Edmonton gem!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    To be honest I cannot write a good review of the cafe as a whole as I have not been able to get in! I have tried 3 times now, and at various times of the day DURING THE WEEK and it is always at capacity!
    I am opening the same concept of a kid friendly cafe, and I can tell you there will be no cover to get in for children to play and no waiting list. You can come in find a table if there are any available ( and there will be) and let your children play in various areas of the cafe. Cafe O play i s always busy and at capacity because if a parent is...Read More

Their hours are only meant for stay at home moms, since they're only open banking hours Mon-Fri. They also don't let any food or drink into their establishment because of "allergies", and then charge you an arm and a leg for the exact same things that they ban on the other side of the door. Never going back even if I could (but darn! I'm a working mom, so I guess that's an impossibility anyway).

If its not the crazy kids raised by parents who pay more attention to their goldfish. It’s the “I bring my sick child to infect other kids parent” you will have to deal with here. Let me start by saying I am not a germ a fob by all means but wow, how carless can parents be. At Café O Play I guarantee you will encounter at least one parent that loves to inflict biological warfare on fellow parents. I was there just last night and one parent sat there on her phone while her child coughed all over every train, ball and slide in the place. Spewing infectious germs into other children’s faces while his mom sat there seeing what her friend from junior high school has been up to for the past 14 years.

It amazes me how terrible people tend to gravitate to each other, so if you are a good parent that cares about your child and other children this place is not for you. But for the parents that enjoy FB over there kids first step, love providing suffering by spreading illness just like the Spanish did to the Mayans or just deep down inside you know your priorities lie with your spray tanning life style and not your child, this place is for you.

Good riddance.

You can come in find a table if there are any available ( and there will be) and let your children play in various areas of the cafe. Cafe O play i s always busy and at capacity because if a parent is going to pay, they are going to stay to get their money out of it. AND it is geared at little tykes, what about children over the age of 6 that dont want to play on "baby" toys? Maybe an area with age approperiate books, t.v., video games etc, they like to go out with their parents too.
This place is a joke and we will never try again to get in. Chuck E Cheese, or Kidz Quarters has a better chance at getting people to come in! Good Luck!
