Feel like going out to have a drink in a place where children are not seen as persona non grata, a space where children would be welcome and where they can have fun while you relax on your own or with some friends? Here are the kid-friendly cafés in Paris that Sortir à Paris has discovered especially for you.
Children are bored and going out would feel very good. Okay but going to a classic teahouse or a café with children also means hell. To avoid problems and have a good time, let’s choose a café welcoming families. All you need to take a break and make your children happy.
Here are some options:
Les 400 Coups
Being a parent can be hard sometimes ! It’s always complicated to go to a restaurant with young children and worry about them running around instead of eating quietly. As a consequence, the family getaway starts being stressful and is not a pleasure anymore. Luckily, some good souls named Séverine Haïat and Elisabeth Conter found a solution for you ! Children are always welcome at 400 coups.
15th arrondissement :
Monbini is a store selling furniture, gifts and décor for children. But it’s also a café where parents can relax, meet with other parents while enjoying small and homemade treats. Excellent coffees and lovely selection of teas with flavorful organic juices expect you.
Une Mère Une Fille
Une Mère Une Fille is a concept reuniting in the same place: a teahouse, a toy store, designers’ accessories and workshops for every generation as well as an event corner (baby shower, baptism, birthday, private brunch and so on…).
Le Cafézoïde: first café for children!
Le Cafézoïde is an open and friendly space where children can play and create freely, and where you can have a drink, eat, practice music and art or be introduced to informatics and many other things. In other words, Le Cafézoïde is a nice and family-friendly place where you’ll have a good time with your kids.
Cafés where you can play or be entertained:

A very nice café-restaurant managed by a lovely Breton couple, including in the cellar traditional and jazz music concerts.

These afternoons will introduce your little angels to fun games. Laughter and relaxation are guaranteed for the whole family.
