Parenting is rough. You’re tired, your schedule is too jam-packed to socialize, and if you do get to be around other adults, you never seem to finish a conversation before being interrupted to tend to a child’s needs. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a relaxing break? Something fun to entertain the kids and keep them confined long enough for you to sit a bit, get your caffeine fix, and chat with other parents in the trenches? Urban Fort Play Café for the win! This relatively new establishment, nestled between Interstates 44 and 55 in south St. Louis, is the perfect blend of coffee house and playground.
