It’s been said that play is the highest form of research. We agree, because we believe so strongly in the value of play, we created The Wishing Tree Play Cafe —a uniquely clean and beautifully designed indoor play space, café and party destination where kids can be active, imaginative and creative, and grownups can stay sane.

Pre-buy your passes before you arrive to save extra time for play! Bringing a friend? Make sure they create a KidCheck account here to handle the waiver. And be sure to read Coco’s wishes for positive play and check out the café menu. Looking for an easy gift for a new mom, grandparent or sitter? Buy a Wishing Tree Play Cafe gift card! We look forward to seeing you!

We offer weekly music, art, Princesses, Show-n-Tell, storytime, parent workshops and more included with your paid admission! We have some amazing programs for you and your littles. We will have Princesses back the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays at 10:30a.m., Music and Movement Mondays and Fridays at 10:30a.m., and grandparents, stop in Mondays for free drip coffee at 9:30 a.m.

Reminder: Everyone is required to remove shoes before entering the play space. Gripper socks are required in the play space. $2 socks are available for purchase for those who forget. We are a nut-free facility and ask you bring in no outside food or drink except water, formula or breastmilk. Thank you!
