Milwaukee With Kids is proud to partner with Little Sprouts Play Cafe to help spread the word about their offerings for families.
They’ve created a casual, bright, and friendly space that is perfect for a play date.
You can discover the play zones right along with your kids, keep an eye on them while you chat with a friend over Stone Creek coffee, or take advantage of the free wi-fi.
Ideal for kids ages 0-6, the thoughtful toys inside are meant to spark imaginative play.
Their play spaces are updated regularly, but you’re likely to find wooden play structures, a fanciful tipi, a group slide in Mequon, a pretend market in Shorewood, costumes, books, and more.
The cafes are open most days of the week from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Specific hours are listed on their website.
Dropping in to play is always welcome. However, reservations are encouraged for open play hours so that they can save room for you and maintain smaller capacities.
Outside of open play hours, they host a variety of sensory and play-based classes.
They also just announced the return of their unlimited Yearly Membership packages. Starting at $385, your family can visit both of their cafe locations as many times as you want throughout the year. With their memberships, you also get discounts on events, birthday parties, and more.
Little Sprout’s award-winning birthday parties have been recognized in The Shepherd Express, Winnie, and more.
For any party at their cafes, your group celebrates with a fully, private event. You can choose to bring your own food and decorations or let them supply it all.
Package options range from a mini Sprout Package to a big blowout, the Full Bloom Package. The new Brunch Package is even set up to provide the food and decor.
Bring socks – they are required.
To keep their cafe floor safe for their smallest guests, socks are required on all feet in their play areas.
Leave snacks at home.

In 2013, Calie Herbst, a former teacher with three little ones, saw a need for a “One Stop Shop” for family fun in Milwaukee. So she founded Milwaukee With Kids. Her goal was to find the best this city has to offer families and share it with other parents. In one place.
In 2019, she published “Exploring Milwaukee WIth Kids”, a comprehensive Milwaukee travel guide for families and kids.
She appears regularly on WISN News, Fox 6’s ‘Real Milwaukee’, B93.3, and Wisconsin Morning News. She has been featured in Medium, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, NPR, the Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle, and on CBS 58 News.
Calie is available for hosting, moderating and media appearances.
