Eating out with kids is exhausting and usually not at all fun. Each these eateries in Austin offer either playgrounds, old fashioned arcade games, or just plain fun menus and experiences to make dining with your children a little less painful.
I absolutely love the Central Market Cafe for a weekend lunch or early dinner. With a playground and turtle pond out back, it's the perfect family outing. The sweet potato fries are heavenly.
North Austin's best Japanese food. Kobe offers both intimate traditional and hibachi style dining, where the chef will wow you with his performance. I got a lovely set of chopsticks on my birthday too!
I love seeing family friendly places in central and south Austin. Freddie's has an outdoor space that begs customers to just hang, with huge oaks, a play place, and live music.
As one of our local go to places when we need to grab a meal with the kids, not to mention their pancakes are superb. Best of all, this location has a playscape out back so the kids can run off some energy while you enjoy your beer in peace.
This fun food truck has everything from smoothies to tamales, but the frozen yogurt is a must have. If you're lucky the flavor of the day will be pomegranate and you can top it off with Oreos.
Hole in the wall Mexican bakery with case after case of pastries. Lunch offerings are delicious; tacos al pastor were amazing, but I couldn't keep my fork out of my husband's Tacos Loko.
Delicious, quirky tacos as unique as Austin itself. Indoor locations still have the funky feel of the trailer. Thumbs up to the fried avocado taco.
With a menu boasting toasted subs ranging from barbeque to vietnamese, Toastie's has something for just about any sandwich lover. The Cali Club is a perfect mix of turkey, cheese, bacon, avocado, and sprouts on delicious herb bread and toasted to perfection.
Sandwiches, salads, pizza, and more, all from the freshest ingredients. Make sure to round out your meal with an apple bear claw or chocolate croissant. Group tours of the facility available.
