Especially when they’re little, it can be hard to find places to eat where babies are easy to bring along. Are the chairs comfortable for feeding? Do they have quieter spaces and room to walk around if the baby gets fussy? Do they deliver? Or even better, offer curbside pickup (mama jackpot!)?
Here are my five favorite foodie restaurants that are mama and baby friendly:
Beauty’s Bagels (Oakland) – Tons of families here at a yummy bagel store. They make delicious sandwiches, soups, and breakfasts that are exciting for both moms and kids.
Picante (Berkeley) – Yummy Mexican fare, with a special bonus: call ahead and you can order curbside pickup! No, really, you don’t even have to get out of the car!
Miyozen Sushi (Emeryville) – Delicious food, plus they have a rotating sushi belt and a dedicated play room for kids.
