Family-Friendly ELF in Traverse City

A new modern and whimsical family-friendly space focusing on Northern Michigan kids opens December 21. In fact, ELF — standing for Eat Learn Frolic — might be a place adults will enjoy just as much as their children. This educational and entertaining hot spot is located at the Village at Grand Traverse Commons near the Cedar Cathedral Trailhead behind Pleasanton Bakery in Traverse City.

And this frolicking is not only entertaining, but it’s educational, too. A reading nook, lego corner, made-to-order play structure for exploration, homework happy hour, and classes for all ages (infants through teenagers) keep kiddos busy at ELF. These classes range from yoga to storytelling, and even include joint parent-baby activities. Check out the variety of classes offered here, including ones taught by Northern Michigan music stars May Erelwine Bernard and Joshua Davis!

The team at ELF has thought of every little detail leading up to the opening that has been three years in the making:

So, parents with little ones, say see-ya later to lonely days and empty bellies. There’s a new place in town that honors local food, encourages breastfeeding, and assures activities that are entertaining yet educational for the little ones.
