On Monday, April 16, 2012, Cafe N Play ( is scheduled to open its doors on 1767 West Ogden Avenue in Naperville, Illinois.

Cafe N Play is the brain child of Dr. Cathy Subber, a local mother of two and a great community member as the owner of Advanced Health Naperville, where she practices as a chiropractor, and the owner of Naperville Moms Network, a local social networking site for Naperville and area moms with over 1,500 members.

Dr. Cathy, as she is lovingly known as, is also an active community member in business as a member of the Naperville Chamber of Commerce. As a busy, single mom with two kids, she understands the wants and needs of a busy parent.

Cafe N Play is a place to "connect, relax, and play" as it states in their website. It combines the best in upscale coffee houses with a kid-friendly appeal. Cafe N Play will be showcasing Kind Coffee, an eco-friendly and organic small batch coffee company from Colorado. It is the first and only location in all of Illinois to carry the coffee brand and is owned by Dr. Cathy's sister.

Keeping it local, Cafe N Play teamed forces with Belgio's Catering, who have designed and created the health conscious menu at the cafe.

Because giving back to the community is what drives Dr. Cathy, Cafe N Play's concept is heavy on that idea and plans to integrate community days, where a portion of the sales will benefit a Naperville or Chicagoland non-profit.

The "play" in Cafe N Play is the fantastic children's play area geared towards kids from one to around nine years old. Cafe N Play gives parents and caregivers a place to go that encourages their kids to run around and play, while they grab a great tasting latte and light lunch. With free wi-fi and high-end decor, this is a kind of coffee house not yet seen outside of Chicago.
