Our Local Hangout: Java Mama {Giveaway}

Java Mama is a local coffee shop that has indoor and outdoor playgrounds for the kiddos. It is one of our favorite places to go! Java Mama is close to our home, is inexpensive and provides a ton of entertainment for my little lady. We go there at least once a week for music classes and playtime. I have been enjoying my fair share of Iced Coconut Mocha’s too 🙂


I recently started a Meetup group that routinely meets at Java Mama. I have worked with the owner in creating fun playdates for our members. We often get to try out new coffees and lunch menu items. I have met some awesome mommas and really love getting to know these ladies a little bit more each week. My kiddo gets to enjoy the playground and has fun taking turns on the popular slide with all her friends.


We have also been attending MusicTots classes with Miss Lori at Java Mama for quite a few sessions now. We LOVE Miss Lori! She is the best music teacher we have found. She is so calm and fun. She plays and writes her own songs and also plays popular kid friendly music. She is also teaching classes at the new Kid Ventures. Her 8 week sessions at Java Mama include a CD with her original music. Check out MusicTots if you are looking for a fun activity for your little ones.


The food at Java Mama is pretty tasty too. I usually get the Italian Panini with a side of fruit. They also have yummy wraps, salads and bagel sandwiches. My kiddo is always happy to have their strawberry-banana smoothie. They have a full kids menu, snacks and barista items.


Aside from the fun playgrounds and food, Java Mama also hosts different types of events to keep the kids entertained. We recently attended story time led by Ariel and saw the Boo Hoo Crew perform! They offer other classes including Spanish Lessons and Sign Language.

We have never attended the Sign4Baby sessions but we have attended the local library sessions. Joann does a great job on teaching the signs and getting the kids involved.

As you can tell, we are big fans of Java Mama and all their supporters. Here’s your chance to visit:

    Since I LOVE coffee, but it has been hard to go with my little girl, I am so happy that we found Java Mama. We love Java Mama, now my 15 months old can have fun there while I sip some delicious coffee. It is so nice to meet other moms and children to hang out and chat a little. Food/Snacks/Coffee/Tea are also great! Best place ever with kids!!!

    My 18-month old, Emma, and I love Java Mama. We’ve attended both the music classes and the Sign4Baby classes. I think we should get the free month pass because I have a brand new baby boy who needs to be properly introduced to Java Mama. I also really want to try that strawberry banana smoothie mentioned in this blog. Sounds delicious!

  4. I should win the play pass because it would be the perfect excuse, I mean reason, to HAVE to go everyday. Daddy won’t be able to argue with that, right?

  5. I would love to win! We haven’t been getting to Java Mama as much since our music classes with Ms. Lori ended, and I’d love the excuse to go play there more often.

  6. Stephanie Salomon

    I would love to win also. Java Mama is the place that I go to when I really need a mom break. 🙂

  7. Kira

    We would love to win since now we started preschool, it would be a great place to venture over to after preschool for a snack and some play time!

  8. Jessica

    We love Java Mama and have been coming since my son was just a couple months old. He’s now 2 and still loves it. I love the coffee and free wifi too!

  9. Congrats Gwendolyn! You are the winner! This giveaway is now closed.
