We spoke with a member of the Little Beans Cafe team to learn more about the brand.

For someone unfamiliar with Little Beans Cafe, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?  

Little Beans Cafe is a family cafe and imaginative playspace for kids 0-6 years. Little Beans offers drop in open play, classes, events, camps, parties, workshops and more. Little Beans is a place where kids can imagine, play and learn and parents can enjoy a comfortable ambiance with great food and drinks.

Tell us about the company’s background. When did it start and how has it evolved since then?  

Little Beans started in 2010 with our first location in Lincoln Park. 4 years later we opened our second larger store in Evanston. Little Beans was created by a brother-sister duo who had a passion for kids and food. We wanted to create a family destination for unstructured imaginative play and activities in a warm environment with good food and coffee. We see kids 0-6 years in our Chicago location and kids 0-12 in our Evanston location with the addition of a room for the older kids. We’re honored to see so many amazing families playing and enjoying time together.

What are the most popular and/or newest products/services from Little Beans Cafe?  

Drop in play is the biggest area of our business. Kids can drop in to play during our open hours (offered 7 days a week). We also offer wonderful quality events. We have summer festivals, holiday themed events and creative activities. In our Evanston location, we just opened a new outdoor patio and started serving beer and wine in the evenings.

What sets Little Beans Cafe apart from family cafes? 

Little Beans is a great place for kids and parents. We really work hard to make it a great experience for both adults and kids. We offer a quality experience and a comfortable environment. We have play, activities, events and classes for a variety of ages to accommodate families with multiple aged children. We really offer a lot of opportunities for families to have fun together and in addition, we have premium Intelligentsia coffee and great food.
