Your kids can only watch The Lion King so many times before they start to get a little antsy. For the days when the little cubs are simply not interested in what Timon and Pumbaa have to say, head to Lil’ Bean n’ Green. This Leslieville play café is designed to please both children and their parents, with a cozy café in the front half of the building and a children’s wonderland in the back, complete with a reading corner and indoor tree house. Not surprisingly, plenty of families meet up here for playdates, with parents indulging in the cafe’s menu of salads, soups, and sandwiches while the kids get the sillies out in the play space. The chic interior is accented with repurposed wood and sleek stainless steel light fixtures, so you can be forgiven if you drift off in thought over your fair-trade latte and imagine yourself in some cafe in the south of France. It won’t be long before you hear your child shriek with delight at another new discovery, snapping you out of your daydream. This creative and cozy space also offers classes throughout the week for more structured play and interaction with other like-minded families.
