Burlington's first play cafe

Opening in March 2019

Chickadee Family Cafe will be the first ever play cafe in Burlington, Ontario! We will provide a fun, imaginative play area for littles, child and parent programming, special events and birthday parties as well as a cozy cafe for parents, serving up delicious locally roasted coffee, espresso beverages, loose leaf teas and quality locally sourced treats.


This is the fun space where we aim to keep you up to date on cafe happenings, and entertain you with stories of parenting and small business life.
