Age Specific / Kids

It’s no secret San Francisco offers some excellent dining options for adults, but what about for kids? Turns out there are some fantastic places to go in the Bay Area to feed budding foodies.

 

Here are six restaurants to consider when traveling with those ordering off the kiddie menu.

 

MAC’D

You can’t go wrong with a restaurant dedicated to the art of macaroni and cheese. Similar to other build-your-own fast casual restaurants, MAC’D allows you design your own macaroni and cheese by picking from a selection of sauces, noodles, mix-ins and toppings. There are options for those with food sensitivities, but check the menu before you go as some still might not be suitable for all diets.

 

Straw

Straw’s vibe is sure to take you back to your childhood and simultaneously delight your kids. Straw is a carnival-themed restaurant (some of the seating is literally inside old carnival rides), though it’s not kitschy by any means. The Straw team proves their culinary chops with delicious brunches and adult-approved eats while serving foods kids will enjoy.

 

St. Francis Fountain

If you’re exploring the Mission District, grab a meal at St. Francis Fountain. The eatery, San Fran’s oldest soda fountain, is more than just an ice cream stop. It’s a full-on diner serving patrons since 1918 and a true local gem with an affordably priced menu.

 

Squat & Gobble Cafe & Crepery

Enjoy some delicious crepes at this kid-friendly eatery. There are three locations around the city, serving tempting bites such as mammoth breakfast plates, savory and sweet crepes, burgers, salads and more. Plus, kids eat free when you purchase an adult entrée on weekdays.

 

Tacolicious

At Tacolicious, kids enjoy simpler, picky eater-approved options, while parents can indulge in Mexican fare on the advanced side. The vibe is casual and laid-back and the margaritas are mom-approved.

 

Foreign Cinema

If your kids are constantly begging you to watch television at the dinner table, then Foreign Cinema might be their favorite place to eat in San Francisco. Foreign Cinema plays movies on an outdoor screen during dinner and kids get a fixed-price meal with ice cream, coloring pages and crayons.

How to DO A.C. With the Family

Sure, we’re barely dipping our toes into winter weather, but isn’t it more fun to think ahead to the warm weather family fun your crew could have at the Jersey Shore? Luckily, Atlantic City, New Jersey, offers far more than sandy beaches and casinos — enough to entertain all ages in all sorts of weather.

The magic of gliding on ice is a beloved activity shared across generations. It’s beautiful, fun and exciting with only minimal danger; tumbles are rarely harmful because one foot is always on the ground.

Piemonte Albergo dell’Agenzia: “Slow Food” Adventure

The wonderful thing about Italy, which evolved from a land of many kingdoms to a unified country in the 19th century, is its buildings have transformed into boutique hotels with fascinating past lives that guests can still explore and appreciate. Whether former farm houses, monasteries, castles or full-on estates, the stays not only provide atmospheric lodging and wonderfully executed regional food, but a means to immerse oneself into a different way of life — be it one of royalty or a simple existence living off the land.

Why Train Travel?

As a fan of train travel, I often choose a ride on rails over a drive or flight, especially in Europe, where I always relish the high-speed trains. In Tokyo, I once appreciated a speedy, efficient and easy-to-understand experience; but, speed isn’t the only appealing aspect of train travel. From Venice to London, on the Venice Simplon Orient Express, we traveled through the coastal cliffs of the Cinque Terra and dined in formal opulence; from Whistler to Vancouver on the Rocky Mountaineer, we sipped tea while viewing the spectacular scenery.
