Stomping Grounds Play Cafe

Stomping Grounds Play Cafe is Your New Option for Indoor Fun

These are exciting times for parents in West Michigan – Another new business can be added to the roster of cool places opening this year and toddler-friendly hangouts.

Stomping Grounds Play Cafe is a thoughtfully created new indoor play space and cafe for kids ages 0-6 and their caregivers.

Opening in the midst of the summer heat and overall wacky weather, Stomping Grounds Play Cafe looks to offer a great option for entertaining the kids.

Play the Montessori Way

Your child leads the way to play, learn, and interact at Stomping Grounds Play Cafe.

The Montessori and Waldorf-inspired space lets your child engage in the best kind of free play. Imaginations run wild exploring the climbing structures, train table, dress-up station, teepee tent, and more.

The toys are hand-selected and carefully curated by the owners. You can tell by the thoughtful selection.

Here, I am wishing I was a kid again.

The play space is so inviting and the toys are just begging to be played with.

Inclusive & Welcoming All to Play

What could be better than an inclusive play space where the whole community can come together?

Stomping Grounds Play Cafe is purposeful about making a space where considerations are made for children of all abilities.

The play area is handicap-accessible with gates wide enough to fit a wheelchair through and toys placed at wheelchair height. 

When kids need a break from the action they can visit the Zen Den for a quieter space stocked with noise cancelling head phones and fidget toys.

Enjoy Delicious Foods From Local Vendors

A play cafe isn’t complete with the snacks, right?

All that fun is bound to make kids (and their caregivers!) hungry.

Stomping Grounds Play Cafe offers great options for snacking. Allergen-conscious foods and drinks are available with many coming from local vendors.

I can’t wait to sample the desserts from Cakes by the Jar and the Fruit Frenzy popsicles are sure to entice my kids.

You can conveniently see the play area from the café, so treat yourself to a coffee and a snack, relax, and enjoy watching the kids play.

A Locally-Owned Labor of Love

How cool is this? Stomping Grounds Play Cafe’s owners, Jennifer Romain and Amanda Texter, signed a lease envisioning a family-friendly venue to strengthen the Caledonia community.

They dreamed up the play structure and built it with the help of their families.

  1. I am wondering if you provide gift cards? I am interested in putting together a gift for a friend’s son of various activities.
