The Tot Café by Little Cocoa Bean Co.

Sometimes you just need a break from cooking for tiny humans — without the stress of entertaining them while you wait for the food to come. That’s why the Tot Café is such a genius idea: a place where little ones can eat, play, and make new friends all in one place. Here, the waffles are rainbow, the cucumbers are shaped like flowers, and the play area is fully stocked with fun toys. Why didn’t anyone think of this sooner?
