Chestnut Fine Foods & Provisions
This restaurant knows how to give parents a peaceful meal while keeping the kids entertained. Chestnut is run by a mom, and the moment you walk in, you can tell right away. Parents who eat here will love the menu, parking, and kid friendly atmosphere and kids will love the tiny chairs and the basket of IKEA toys. From Thursday through Saturday, Chestnut Fine Foods & Provision transforms into Water Chestnut with menu offerings like bento boxes and ramen noodle bowls for kids.
Luci’s at The Orchard
Parents love to visit Luci’s for during the hot afternoons, where their kids can happily play in the outdoor splash pad while the parents enjoy their coffee, lunch, and ice cream. Behind the orchard, in a shared space covered in astroturf, will be completely entertained by sprinklers and water spouts at The Orchard while their parents enjoy a happy hour cocktail at Pomelo, lunch at Luci’s, or ice cream from Splurge.
Some restaurants have exquisitely crafted food made from local, seasonal ingredients, and some restaurants have a place where kids can play. Not many have both. Ocotillo does, and we guarantee your blue corn pancake or Peruvian salmon ceviche (not making this up) will taste even better, knowing that your children are happily playing on the patch of grass nearby. Or, stand with a friend at their coffee bar and enjoy some adult conversation, only lightly sprinkled with repeated warnings to your toddlers not to touch the agave.
Located on McDowell Rd., Ollie’s is the coolest little sandwich shop of fun! With locally sourced ingredients, the menu offers delightful breakfast, lunch, and kids’ meals with yummy and healthy choices for all. Parents can enjoy their meal inside and see right outside to the enclosed back patio where children can run and play in the play house outside.
The Teapot is so awesome and in such demand from all of the local cool kids, that they even have a small cover charge to allow your kids to enjoy their play time. Parents love this sweet little Roosevelt District coffee shop and tea house with an amazing and deliciously priced menu of drink and food choices and the kids love the kid’s paradise play yard.
