Family Friendly restaurants

  • Try Boston Family Foodie Examiner sign up for updates.
  • Johnny D's in Davis Square: half-price dining! (with some restrictions): Tues-Thu, 4:30-6:30 pm and a tub of toys and books to occupy the wee ones (no changing tables in restrooms, though). They also have terrific brunch on the weekends, and if you show up by 9:30, it's still quiet and they are kid-patient and kid-friendly. The brunch musicians (jazz) start around 10am. (Edit: June 2009: I think they don't do 1/2-price dining on Fridays anymore. -JP)
  • Teele Square Cafe— There's a lot of light and benches for kids to sit, plus a couple high chairs and a changing table. Our goal is to serve homemade comfort food made from scratch in a fun, laid-back atmosphere.
