Play-A-Latte Cafe is currently hiring creative and outgoing individuals for full-time and part-time Barista roles in a unique opportunity geared towards families.
Play-A-Latte is like no other cafe. Our vision is to be a highlight of the day for our guests. For our younger guests, we’re a place to play, learn and be themselves. For parents, we’re a small retreat, a resource, and a place to connect with others.
Our staff connect with our guests, laugh with them, and improve their day. We go beyond providing customized beverages, nutritious food, and other delicious creations.
