Loved this place!  From the minute we walked in the staff was amazingly friendly and welcoming.  There are two big colorful kitchens where they run the classes and a very small lobby.  The kids really got a kick out of the class.  


My son absolutely loves the Young Chefs Academy! Staff is amazing and the recipes children cook are very ideal!

My son has been going to Young Chefs in Sandy Springs since he was 7, and he's about to turn 11. He loves it, and we love all the chefs and staff there. They have done an amazing job at getting him to try just about any food that's in front of him. I think the best thing for kids about YCA is that they help kids develop an appreciation for a variety of colors, textures and flavors - not just sweet and salty. Their camps and workshops are a great, low commitment way to try them out.  More recently, our five-year-old son has been attending camps, and has loved it as well. He is way more rambunctious, energetic and physical - so we were skeptical that he would stay still long enough to enjoy the classes, but he really loves them.

I put together a group of my sons friends to do some Gingerbread House decorating at the holidays.  The staff was SO friendly and nice, they even created a one pager with my sons information for the invitation.  Lots of fun and a super family friendly environment, we'll plan to make this an annual activity going forward.

My son has been a member of YCA for 4 years and we just love it there!  He has learned so much about cooking, chopping, dicing and other countries' foods.  As a mom, my favorite part is that they learn to make 'real' dishes that I want to cook over and over, not just little kid foods.  Definitely some of our at home favorites came from YCA class!

Young Chefs Academy of Sandy Springs gets five stars from our family.  Our elementary aged kids - both boys and girls - have enjoyed many events at YC's to include our daughters 6th birthday, holiday/summer camps and most recently a holiday gift making evening workshop.  The staff makes cooking and learning so much fun.  Our son's cub scout den also had a great workshop on outdoor cooking with yummy kid friendly recipes.  All reservations and communication is very professional, timely and efficient.  Highly recommend!

We had my son's 6th birthday party at Young Chefs over the summer and he absolutely loved it! The instructors were very friendly and the kids loved making their own pizzas and decorating their own cupcakes. I would recommend their birthday parties, for sure. All I had to do was show up the day of and they had taken care of everything! I'm hoping to get my son enrolled in some weekly classes this fall. Great business!

We had an amazing experience for my daughter Avery's 6th birthday today! Chef Kia was superb, and all of the employees were professional and kind. Avery and her friends all had a terrific time. Thank you YCA! Party was worth every penny!

My daughter just had her 7th birthday party here and it was a huge hit!! I literally felt as if I was forgetting something when it was over because it was the first birthday party I've ever thrown where I wasn't stressed!!

My daughter had her 3rd birthday party here and it was perfect. Her friends had a blast! The staff was amazing to work with and very accommodating to everything I wanted to include. Will be taking her to some of the regular cooking classes and camps as well. Highly recommend!

Charli had the best time at the Labor Day class. She's still talking about it and can't wait to take her again!

We had my 5 year old's birthday party at the Solon Young Chef's Academy. They made pizza from scratch and decorated cupcakes. I thought the party went wonderfully. The kids had a blast and the party was busy, but well organized. The facility was clean, the head chef was great with kids, and everyone had fun. I highly recommend this place and we will be back. 


Just had my 12 year olds birthday party there and it was a great time. The kids (ranging from 9-13) were all engaged and the pasta they made was awesome!
