Sugar Space Play Café


Due to Covid-19 we re-opened the Play Cafe mid-late February 2021 with some changes.  The Play Area will be temporarily set up in our alternate building which is located on the Northwest end of our property off of the parking lot called the “Robertson Studio”. This is a smaller space that will be easier for us to keep clean and manage safely.

We are implementing the health and safety requirements / recommendations by the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention). To ensure everyone’s safety, we ask that you please follow these guidelines while visiting. 

  • All adults and children over the age of 3 are required to wear face masks inside our venue. Children under the age of 3 do not require face covering. Feel free to contact us directly with questions/concerns or if you have a mask related doctor note. For more information on  CDC face covering considerations click here.
  • We will be conducting temperature checks on all patrons entering our facility. Anyone with a temperature of 100.3 or above will not be allowed access. 
  • Everyone who enters the facility and play space must sanitize their hands. 
  • For the time being, we are operating “By Appointment Only”. This means we will not offer any walk-in play options. If you’d like to visit our play space, you will be required to reserve a spot in advance here:  RESERVE NOW
  • We are currently offering “Private Play” session with participants from your immediate family / small pod, or book an “Open Play” session with participants from outside of your social circle who book a play session at the same time. 
  • In order to maintain proper social distancing, we will be limiting our play space capacity to ten (12) people (children & adults combined) per play session. This capacity is applicable to both Private Play sessions and Open Play.  
  • Adults are required to accompany their child(ren) inside the play space at all times. Children cannot be left in the play area unattended.  Bathrooms will be located across the driveway in our “Warehouse” building and children must be accompanied by parents at all times as the bathrooms are located in a public building that is accessed by many people.
  • Parents are strongly encouraged to monitor and deter their children from engaging in play activities that increase the spread of germs (such as putting toys in their mouths). To make it easier, we removed any toys that are difficult to disinfect and sanitize and introduced new ones that are better suited for safety. 
  • All toys will go through a deep cleaning process at the end of every session.
  • If you or your child have a cough, sore throat, diarrhea, vomiting, green runny nose, fever or “sick” symptoms, you are required to stay home to avoid infecting any of our other guests. If we notice you or your child experiencing any of these symptom, we will ask you to reschedule your visit for another time when these symptoms are no longer present.  We do our best to provide a fun, clean and a “germ free” environment for our children and yours.
  • Food and beverages will be available from our coffee bar.  We will be providing a limited menu at this time.  For everyone’s safety, items from our coffee bar may only be consumed in our outdoor dining space only which is directly adjacent to the indoor play area. 
  • We have added new COVID -19 related information to our waiver of responsibility. As a result, all patrons will be asked to fill out our online waiver prior to entrance into the play space. The new waiver is required for all participants, whether you filled one out in the past or not. You may save time by filling out this waiver prior to visiting.

We can’t stress enough the importance of following our new protocol.  Please help us stay safe to stay in business!
