I normally don’t go to Scripps Ranch but today I went to Java Mama Cafe’ to meet up with some fellow bloggers. Java Mama is a a gem of a coffee shop. I wish they had a concept like this when my kids were younger. A natural-toned, quiet environment coffee shop/kids play area. They even have a staff member that supervises while your kids play in a confined area. While they are playing, you can sit at one of their tables and sip on a coffee, have a muffin and relax or do some work (no bright primary colors that make you go crazy). Another great thing about this place is that it is big and airy. They also offer classes for children and classes to help get through the woes of parenthood. I have to say I would be a regular if this was open 5 years ago.
