Indoor playground, Kids Cafe, Art Classes, Roof terrace and Perfect Place for Birthday Parties – you’ll find it all in Little Monster Kids Cafe in Shinsadong, Gangnam
What a funny name and what a great place to spend a few hours when it’s freezing outside. Little Monster Cafe is a very clean, colorful and cheerful place located in one of the small streets in Shinsadong.
Built on 3 levels, Little Monster Cafe provides leisure and education space for toddlers, preschoolers and older kids while parents will enjoy a well-designed dining and coffee lounge. On the first floor, you will find a lovely and bright coffee shop and a toddlers indoor playground, several art classrooms and a playroom are located on the second floor and a nice rooftop terrace can be found at the top.
The playroom on the first level is especially designed for toddlers; there is no extra charge as access is included in your restaurant / coffee bill. The dining lounge provides a good selection of pizzas and pasta – all sorts of coffee variations can be ordered (a bit pricey though, but you also pay for the convenience of the kids playroom too).
Creative Art Classes and Special Events
On the second floor, several smaller rooms are fully equipped for indoor playing or for different types of art classes running on regular or on-demand basis.
Here are a few examples from Little Monster Cafe list of activities:
- Art classes (Drawing, Craft, Face Painting, Wall Art)
- Board Games and Puzzles
- English Storybook Reading
- Toy Room Playing
- Roof Garden athletic activities
The Cafe also operates as a small shop where you can find a nice selection of kids books, toys, puzzles and shoes.
We have been truly impressed by the kindness and professionalism of the entire team from the restaurant staff to the kids attendants. Our little ones participated in a Christmas candle making class during a Birthday Party – the creations were absolutely outstanding! All kids had a memorable time with attentive art teachers while parents enjoyed delicious food on the ground floor.
