    Maxwella Café & Bar

    This Halloween, Maxwella Café and Bar is inviting kids and families to come enjoy the season with free weekend activities. From 9 a.m.-1 p.m., Maxwella will be turning its center space into the Children’s Activity Room! This space will be used for creating crafts and painting.


    This Halloween season, Maxwella is offering two weekends of ghoulish fun with one of the weekends serving as an opportunity to help other kids in need!


    Oct. 20-21: Halloween Handprint Painting – Using a hand dipped in paint, kids will create and paint traditional Halloween images such as witches, ghosts and skeletons!


    Oct. 27-28: Halloween Tote Bag Decorating – Kids will paint and color Halloween themed inspirations on their very own personal tote bag, which can be used for collecting candy on Halloween! What’s even more special about this activity is that kids will have the opportunity to spread Halloween cheer by decorating and filling tote bags for local kids in need. The decorated goodie bags will be directly donated to Camp Kindness Counts, a local organization that runs summer camps and year-long activities to teach kids about being kind through their actions.


    Weekend crafting is free (with the purchase of a kid’s meal) and offers the opportunity for parents to enjoy a delicious brunch and great local coffee. To view the full brunch menu visit No reservations needed.
