Things to Do
A Latte Fun
102A Palm PointWith an inviting, hip coffee shop up front and a 4,000-square-foot play area toward the back, this is place that parents and grandparents were looking for to entertain their toddlers and pre-schoolers.  Beyond the cozily lit and nicely furnished coffee shop that offers a delicious brew as well as salads, paninis, and an array of healthy snacks, there's a super, carefully staffed play area just waiting for exploration.  A trampoline set into the ground hosts a gaggle of giggling 2- and 3-year-olds jumping to their hearts' content.  Next to the trampoline there is a lighthouse-shaped climbing structure that dumps children squarely into a sea of blue foam blocks.  There are dress-up corners and kitchen play areas, a giant inflatable slide, and a spot dedicated to crawlers who'd like to stay out of the fray.

Special note: The playground is a shoe-free environment and all who enter must wear socks. There are socks available for purchase just in case.
