Dine out with Ease at These Five Kid-friendly Eateries

Have picky eaters? No problem. These family-friendly eateries make dining out with kids doable.

The Red Balloon Café + Play
Created with parents and young children in mind, Red Balloon’s appeal is equally divided between its custom, Montessori-like playspace and its delicious, nutritious meals and snacks, including plenty of kid-friendly and allergy-sensitive options. Pleasant Ridge, redballooncafe.com

The Gruff
A quaint play corner with books, puzzles, and blocks will distract the little ones while you decide what to order from the extensive menu, which includes vegan and gluten-free options and a kids’ menu complete with mini charcuterie. Covington, atthegruff.com

Station Family + BBQ
This neighborhood spot wants to bring families and friends together to enjoy good ol’ barbecue with a twist (we love the Cincinnati sausage). Your kids will disappear to the game room—there’s ping-pong, chess, and a chalkboard—or even outside to Wyoming’s Village Green, where they can run around in warmer months. Wyoming, cincystation.com

Sleepy Bee Café
Sleepy Bee has a sunny, playful atmosphere perfect for families. It’s known for its fresh, locally sourced menu items, and tasty kids’ menu options include the Scrambly Bee, an egg with cheese, or the Bee Three, a plate with sliced chicken, sweet potatoes, and fresh fruit. Oakley, downtown, and Blue Ash, sleepybeecafe.com

The Root Beer Stand
Order some cheese coneys and the famous root beer floats at this favorite summertime spot, which has a picnic area and playground where the kids can burn off steam on a warm evening. Sharonville, therootbeerstand.com
