Party Planning Guide

 Information updated November 20th, 2020

Parties are our specialty! We take care of all the details so you can relax and enjoy the festivities.  Our enthusiastic PARTY HEROES will do more than provide you with your food order, private room, and time to play. They will lead customized games and creative play, keeping kids engaged through the whole event. They will make sure the celebration truly revolves around the person who matters most that day: your child.

Due to recent State and County health directives we are now offering only the following two Birthday Party options:

  • OPEN PLAY PARTIES that occur during our Open Play hours when other customers will be in the facility and
  • PRIVATE PARTIES when you and your guests have exclusive use of Cafe O’Play.

We are putting our larger party packages and facility rentals on hold for the time being. 

    FOR OPEN PLAY PARTIES:

    • To allow for social distancing we have opened up the movable wall that separated our two party rooms and made one large room.  
    • Due to our reduced occupancy limit in order to socially distance, Open Play Parties have a total capacity of 10 adults and children. (This party room normally holds 36.)  If your party guest count is going to exceed 10 you must schedule a Private Party.

    FOR PRIVATE PARTIES:

    • Private Parties include everything in the regular party package but allows you and your guests to have exclusive use of Cafe O’Play, with a total occupancy of up to 20 adults and kids. 

    FOR ALL PARTIES:

    • Adults and children 11 years and older, must wear a face covering at all times – excluding when eating or drinking.  Children 10 and under are not required to wear a face mask. Guests not adhering to the face covering mandate will be asked to leave.
    • All adults and children attending parties at Cafe O’Play MUST complete our waiver either online or when they arrive at the cafe.  

    Cafe O’Play is built for children ages 10 and under. Children coming for Cafe O’Play parties must also meet these age guidelines for the safety of our younger guests. Children and teens who are beyond these age limits will be counted as adult guests when in attendance at a party.

    Most aspects of our Birthday Party Packages and Private Playdates can be reserved through our online party registration system.  You are also welcome to stop by in person, or call and speak with one of our managers.

    For special customizations or Cafe O’Play ON THE GO, please call and speak with a manager to schedule these events.

    PLEASE NOTE: Parties cannot be booked online if the desired date is within ONE week due to our staff schedule.  Please call the cafe at (330) 928-7517 to see about availability of these parties and playdates.  Last minute parties (those occurring within one week of the desired date) must call to reserve their party date and time and will be required to place a double deposit in order to schedule their event.

     ADDITIONAL EVENT SERVICES:

    PRIVATE PLAYDATES are a new event option we have created specifically due to Covid-19.  These allow up to 20 people to attend Cafe O’Play for 2 hours and have exclusive use of the facility.  Private Playdates are intended for those who have a “pandemic pod” or “social bubble” of friends or family members with whom they are spending time in order to limit their exposure to Covid-19. The cafe is open during these playdates for food orders and other customizations can be added as desired.

    Private Playdates are not intended for birthday parties.  No outside food, decorations, or presents may be brought in during a Private Playdate.

    Private Playdates, $200/2hr

    Do you have your own “social bubble”; a group of friends and their kids with whom you are comfortable hanging out?  Then consider coming to Cafe O’Play for some clean, indoor, family fun.  Private Playdates are two hours in length and cost $200. During this time you and your group will have exclusive use of Cafe O’Play. Capacity for these playdates is 20 people and this includes adults, kids, and babies.

    Due to our strict cleaning schedules, no one will be allowed into Cafe O’Play before the start time, and everyone must leave promptly at the end time.  This will allow us to clean extensively between playdates and parties. No outside food or beverages are allowed during Private Playdates.  Our cafe will be open for full service.

    You are welcome to use the Playdate as a birthday playdate for your youngster and their friends.  However, no outside food, decorations, or presents may be brought in and our staff will not provide our award winning birthday service. You may purchase our cupcakes for singing happy birthday.
