My 2 year old really loves to go here. It currently costs a little over $8 for one child so be prepared to stay for a while to get your money's worth. You will find a large train table, bouncy house, ball house, slide, books, push cars and much more to entertain your toddler. Two negatives: 1) they don't allow any outside food or drink. 2) You must pay for 'crawling' babies. It seems pretty unreasonable to pay for any child under 1. Great place for a rainy day!

Today was our second time here and we will not come back. Our comments are mostly about the ownership and not about the playground and staff. Owner of this place is a rude and very unwelcoming individual who does not care about anything other than making a quick buck. Understandable when you run a business but some customer service would be nice. We were told "no outside food, especially nuts" which we understood but didn't think that giving our two year old some cereal would cause a scene and ultimately drive us out the door. Owner was rude and...Read More

Looooove!!!! This is by far our favorite place to play. PD Cafe is amazingly clean and bright. The food is all very healthy and unique to the experience! (No gooey pizza and fries here!) Most of all, I love the staff. Everyone of them is clearly hand picked for their smiles, kindness and love of kids.

Our daughter loves the preschool at Playdate Café and their enrichment classes. Where else can you learn about artists and make gooey creations while at school when your 4? We love Playdate Café!! P.S. They have great multi visit passes that make great gifts.

Owner of this place is a rude and very unwelcoming individual who does not care about anything other than making a quick buck. Understandable when you run a business but some customer service would be nice. We were told "no outside food, especially nuts" which we understood but didn't think that giving our two year old some cereal would cause a scene and ultimately drive us out the door. Owner was rude and very combative when she saw us giving our 2 year old daughter some cereal. She yelled saying "THIS IS MY HOUSE. I DON'T COME TO YOUR HOUSE SMOKING CIGARETTES!!!". When I told her we didn't smoke, trying to defuse the situation, she continued on stating how she could lose her business blah blah. How smart can somebody be to compare adult cigarette smoking to kids eating cereal? I don't know, but doubt it's somebody concerned about your child's wellbeing if cigarette analogy is the first one that comes to her mind. Health department could care less but that's the story she goes by, claiming it's for the safety of the kids. It's pretty simple, she made up that rule so that she could sell more of her "healthy" food, which is overpriced and mostly is purchased from other food suppliers and not really prepared by them as she claims. Bagels for example come from Blazing Bagels, and coffee is from Ladro. Both good companies but that's beside the point. What if I showed up there with a cup of Ladro's latte and bagel from Blazing Bagels and consumed it there? I guess those two items would be lot safer if I purchased them at the Playground Cafe. Give me a break. If I have my kid's b-day party here am I not allowed to bring my own cake? Oh, I'm pretty sure they'll make an exception if there was a party. I guess if we gave them $10 it would be o.k. to feed my 2 year old some cereal. Maybe for extra $5 I could give her one cracker?
If owner truly cared about the safety she would implement some kind of crowd control. Place was packed with kids and parents and many kids were stomped on by each other. Nothing serious happened this time as all the parents keep a good eye on their kids but I’m sure if some fire code wasn’t violated this time it soon will be. Crowd control could equal less money in owner’s pocket, so I’m not surprised this hasn’t been implemented yet. I’m sure it will be at some point, and yes I’m saying that with a little bit of sarcasm.
So my advice is if you plan to have your child eat food you prepared for them don't plan on doing it there. You will be attacked by a very angry middle aged woman without any manners and class. When told "this is not a very nice way to run a business", she said "look around" implying "place is full", "I'm doing well". Pretty cocky and full of herself so she doesn't care about losing one customer, my 2 year old daughter. Well played, well played. I truly hope my commentary will drive many of the good folks out there away. Oh and by the way, food and coffee we ordered there we never got. Do you think we got our money back? You guessed right, no freaking way.
