Perfect Play Date


Photo by Jared CastaldiIt’s been almost a year since Chestnut Hill’s Little Treehouse traded its humble Germantown Pike digs for a more sunny and spacious locale on West Gravers Lane. Since the move, this innovative eatery/indoor playground has impressed moms, dads, kids and their extended families with its vibrant interior, stress-free birthday parties and culinary style.

The eclectic, locally sourced, undoubtedly gourmet menu includes white truffle popcorn, an artisanal cheese plate with fig jam and crostini, a handful of savory soups and salads, plus scrumptious panini offerings like grilled cheese with taleggio and basil, and Sicilian tuna with capers, onion, tomato and shaved lettuce. There’s also an $8 kids’ meal with five different “picks,” and a choice of apple juice, milk or soda.

Or choose from the 11 varieties of thin-style brick-oven pizza. All are made with whole-wheat dough, come in a variety of mouthwatering combinations—including the Bianca (Grana Padana, Locatelli, mozzarella, Fontina and herb oil) and the Florentine (spinach, Fontina, onion, Grana and herb oil)—and range in price from $11 to $13.

There are a few hands in the kitchen, but the main chef is Rob Gary. Credit for the concept goes to entrepreneurial mom Rachael Williams. Coming soon to the Little Treehouse: gymnastics and music classes.
