Sugar Space Play Café

ABOUT the Play Café

Sugar Space Play Café is the perfect space to bring your toddler and relax in an urban arts oasis surrounded by community, food and fun.
Relax, grab a coffee or lunch, bring your computer and let your children play and explore! It is a great time to make new friends and socialize in a creative and friendly space.
Our mission is to bring people together in an inclusive space that strengthens our community!
