Our Story

Little Beans Café was founded in 2010 as a family destination for kids and parents/caregivers to play. Our goal is to provide a safe and fun environment for the kids and a comfortable place for adults to hang out with other parent friends and have a good cup of coffee and meal.

After having kids of my own in Chicago, I wanted to create a place where I would want to go to enjoy my time as much as my kids. With so many options for kids, we wanted Little Beans to be a community destination with play, food, events, classes, camp and workshops that would be fun for kids AND the parents/caregivers alike. We always try and keep the adults enjoyment in mind with creating our programming and the look and feel of our facilities. As a brother sister team, we truly enjoy seeing so many amazing families play together and we love being part of the Chicago family community.

After 4 years in business in Chicago, we decided to take the next step and open a location, larger and with more offerings, in Evanston, IL. Little Beans Café Evanston will share the same qualities and offerings as Little Beans Chicago with the addition of a custom play area with an obstacle course (for kids 5-12 years) and half court gym.
