Petite Forêt Play Café is a beautiful new gathering place for families in the heart of Kitsilano. From colouring contests to interactive play areas, the space is carefully crafted to spark children's imaginations and foster meaningful interactions with peers and quiet moments. We love that it's been designed for creative play for kids, while parents can relax! On weekdays, Petite Forêt has become a popular place for parents to get work done while their kids play, for caregivers to take young ones to explore, or for friends to catch up and spill the tea

Families can enjoy this trendy kids cafè in various ways: indulge in treats & beverages at the café bar, shop unique & beautiful gifts from around the world, storytime in multiple languages, Mandarin classes for ages 2-11, Baby Bop & Preschool Ballet classes, Storytime with Friends (those friends being cute bunnies!), French music exploration and tutor classes, and other special or ongoing events. Not to mention, Petite Forêt is also a fantastic place to host a memorable birthday party for your little ones. Petite Forêt is owned & operated by a local mom of two, who you may catch sight of behind the counter, tidying up, or chatting with her guests!
