Play Cafe (Baltimore, Maryland)
Play Cafe is the perfect place to take your little one for a small bite to eat or a big place to play. The unique retro school house décor offers a warm and inviting atmosphere for families with toddlers. Upon entering the café doors, wistful feelings of nostalgia began to ignite. I found myself reminiscing about tender elementary school memories. The café also host special movie nights, puppeteer shows and other special events. Located in the heart of the Hampden, one of Baltimore’s premier neighborhoods, Play Cafe is nothing short of a good ole time.
