Cool de Sac – The perfect place for playdates

Cool de Sac entrance

Having read about the great reviews on US imported Cool de Sac from SassyMama and JBabies on this new playhouse cum cafe, I wanted to check it out myself too. So, I recommended this place to the other mummies from my son’s class when we were cracking our brains on a place where mummies can chat and kids can play without much supervision.

Cool de Sac playhouse works this way:
Entry for kids 3-12 yo – $20 for unlimited playtime
Entry for toddlers above 6mths to below 3 yo – $10 for unlimited playtime
Credit card discounts: Amex 15%, OCBC 10% off entry and food prices

For unlimited play time, I think $20 for each child is really low price in my opinion.

The kids had so much fun and the mummies were able to chat happily that we ended up being the last to leave at 10pm which is Cool de Sac closing time.

Cool de Sac has a kids’ menu that serves decent food at reasonable prices. I ordered a pizza for YH, a spaghetti for XX and Little YT, a macaroni cheese for myself to share with the kids (I knew I would end up eating the leftovers of pizza and spaghetti) plus 2 milkshake in adult sizes. All these cost me less than $30 with credit card discount. The rest of the menu looks tempting too. They even have baby’s puree on the menu!

There are many play zones inside this cafe catering to toddlers, young kids and big kids – indoor playground, lego section, costume pretend play, toddler’s area, Wii and play station, colouring and craft area, and many cosy corners by the window for the bigger kids to self-entertain at the very last entertainment option.

Cool de Sac is not only a perfect place for playdates, I think it gives parents a place to unwind and catch up on lovey dovey dates without leaving the kids at home. It is a place that suits all ages and will be perfect for families with different age groups kids. We stayed there for a solid 4.5 hours in total for the P1 Playdate and all of us still have lots to chat and the kids were still reluctant to go home.

This will surely be my number one place for playdates from now on till I discover another better place 🙂

  1. One thing our kids activity places lack are the crafts areas, which you seem to have in abundance! I like the way they offer a more quiet play too, I can see how you enjoyed the place for a long time with all its variety.

    • You have many outdoor play and because of our high humidity and hot weather, many prefer indoor play and crafts. This is a very good play date cafe for sure. What sets it apart is that the parents are able to see the kids as they run around, except for 2 extreme ends where we’ll need to walk over to check them out.

  2. Sounds like a good option to have up our sleeves. Definitely a bit more variety than some of the other places. The only concern I have is how to stop it from turning into an extended computer game session… but I love the idea of dress ups as well as the usual soft play, etc.

  3. This is indeed the best indoor playground in town, and the most reasonably priced. It’s also the only one with decent hot food instead of only snacks and sandwiches, if I’m not wrong. Cool place!

    On another note, it’s so cool too that your son’s classmates can get together for play dates during the school holiday! That’s very rare!

    • The food is good and they are freshly cooked. Actually there are more places that serve hot food now like Amazonia, Fidgets. This mama gathering is my first too and we totally love it. You should start one with your son’s class too 🙂
