If you are tired of taking your kids to traditional playgrounds, then take a look at Playwerx in Carlsbad for a fresh take on fun. Although there are plenty of outdoor recreational areas, Playwerx takes it inside with multi-level play structures; a cafe featuring healthy cuisine, snacks, and beverages; and a gourmet coffee bar serving organic, fair trade coffees and espresso.
Healthy and reasonably priced menu choices include baked chicken nuggets, grilled cheese, quesadillas, gluten-free pizza, and burritos for the kids, as well as gourmet salads, wraps, and weekly specials for the adults. Birthday party packages are available and stress-free as the well-trained staff takes care of everything. Parties run about two hours and include invitations, private party room, choice of decorations, pizza and drinks, a sheet birthday cake, and goody bags. If you prefer to host a party "a la carte," you're welcome to do that, too.
