Los Angeles' Highland Park has lots of places where babies are welcome. These family-friendly restaurants have highchairs, enough noise to drown out whiny babies, and a clientele that won't hate you.
Solid Mexican food in Mount Washington/Highland Park. This tiny, red-boothed restaurant serves up good soups, mariscos and standard LA Mexican food fare.
Solid Mexican-American restaurant with a full bar and a friendly, family atmosphere. Try the spicy salsa verde or the calabacitas con elote--they'll throw an egg on it for breakfast.
Best huaraches in town, plus a wet burrito that won't quit. Try the adobada taco and huitlacoche quesadilla. Great prices, great salsa bar.
Best burger in town, according to me. Truffled grilled cheese on thick cut bread is a revelation. Both go great with a local brew on tap.
Bodacious coffee, tasty pastries, friendly staff. Best breakfast includes fried eggs with black beans, plantains and chunk of queso fresco
Gourmet burgers in Highland Park. Try the house burger with pancetta, cheese tots and the pickle plate. Turkey burger is the best in town.
Cute little cafe with good breakfast/lunch. Top notch pastries, huevos rancheros, veggie burger. Beef bulgogi sandwich is curiously tasty.
Vietnamese comfort food.Noodle salad is good, but pork confit is outrageous, and mushroom bahn mi is so satisfying.Start with the garlic fries, try a pot pie and order a house soda.
Solid red sauce Italian.Start with the meatballs pomodoro and try the Orecchiette with sausage and kale. Burrata pizza is simple and divine
Brunch, lunch or dinner. It’s all good. Don’t miss garbanzo bean salad, fish tacos with mango salsa, or tender barbacoa with pickled onions
