The former Little Beans Cafe on the corner of Asbury Avenue and Oakton Street in Evanston has been purchased by the city which plans to renovate the building into a community center. Little Beans, the popular cafe and play place on the corner of Asbury Avenue and Oakton Street in Evanston that was purchased by the city in February, is set to be revamped as the South End Community Center.

Thompson said the biggest reason the department pushed for the building was to provide a home for those who need accessible recreation opportunities. The center’s preschool is expected to be open in August, according to Thompson and will also take on some of the Ecology Center programs including hosting birthday parties, which are already being booked. Parents looking to enjoy a date night can drop their children off at the center and enjoy discounts at several South Evanston businesses.
