Tiny Tots Tea Room tuckers out children up to five years old with hours of socializing and unstructured activities in an indoor play arena outfitted with an on-site café. Human saplings bound through two separate areas, including a tea room stocked with pretend dresses, craft supplies, and a pint-sized table to imitate members of the British Parliament during mid-session coloring breaks. Floor-to-ceiling murals gild walls in the sheltered playground as large windows bathe an assortment of safe play equipment in natural sunlight. Younglings climb up and slide down plastic play sets in a space carpeted for soft landings; a pretend kitchen and toddler-sized roller coasters let kids play out carnival dreams of riding adult rides and cooking their own funnel cake.
Once hunger for play transforms into hunger for sustenance, the café can chop up simple snacks from their kids' and adults' menus. The Especially for Tiny Tots section compiles options for developing appetites such as the Going on a Picnic platter of turkey slices, carrot sticks, cheese, apple slices, and crackers ($4.25) or a Not so Tiny Tots platter ($4.25) that contains fresh fruit, goldfish, string cheese, and chicken nuggets cut upon request. Parents or children wearing fake mustaches and stilts enjoy free range of the kitchen to polish off a pesto italiano panini pressed with ham, salami, and provolone with basil pesto ($6.95) or the grilled chicken caesar wrap ($7.25), both served with a choice of chips, pretzels, popcorn, carrots, or applesauce.

Inside the playground and cafe, children ages nine months to six years old gleefully frolic amid one another while indulging in open play sessions held six days a week. The space features fun for both kids and adults, who unwind in Tiny Tots cafe while sipping signature drinks, such as espresso drinks or Tiny Tots tea, and noshing on snacks including wraps, housemade desserts, and plenty of gluten-, dairy-, and peanut-free dishes. In addition to promoting open play sessions, the space hosts birthday events with all-inclusive theme parties such as Princess, Rock-star Diva, Ohh La La Spa, and Playroom Parties on the weekends.
