Earlier this year, OnMilwaukee shared the news that Little Village Play Cafe was opening in Wauwatosa, 6505 W. North Ave. And now the time has come!

"We'll be opening our doors for the very first time to share a sneak peek of our space and welcome guests in to shop for holiday gifts," says owner Abi Gilman.

Little Play Cafe is an indoor environment for kids ages newborn to 6 years old and their caregivers. It will host open-play sessions, educational classes and party rentals. The space also includes a retail area with gifts and toys, a limited menu, craft beer, mimosas, treats, Pilcrow nitro cold brews and Anodyne coffee. 

Holiday Preview Hours: 

  • Thursday, Dec. 22 from noon to 7 p.m.
  • Friday, Dec. 23 from noon to 7 p.m.

The fun includes a craft table where kids can make a DIY gift for someone special.

For a $5 donation, employees will wrap any gifts purchased in the shop and all proceeds will benefit Moms Mental Health Initiative, a local non-profit dedicated to providing resources to parents struggling with perinatal and postpartum depression and anxiety.

Plus, during the preview, there are special offers on party rental reservations and gift card purchases.
