While parents indulge in a coffee, nail treatment, dance class or just some relaxing conversation with friends, The Lullabar features a supervised play gym for kids to explore fun activities.

The Lullabar’s café also offers healthy, pre-made sandwiches and salads, snacks and baked goods from Prager Brother Artisan Breads. Whether choosing a kale Caesar with chicken or broccoli cheddar soup, there’s something for everyone in the café.
