Even for the most intrepid parents, it only takes one epic disaster with projectile mayonnaise or a toddler-on-toddler food fight to swear off restaurants entirely until the kids hit double digits. So what’s Tiny Diner’s magic formula? There’s the tasty, affordable, and wholesome $5 menu for the under-12s. If you’ve never seen a pea cross your kindergartner’s mouth, the mac and cheese with peas works like a charm. Add the idyllic vegetable garden, where children can frolic while the adults sip wine and attempt an actual conversation, and you’ve got a real hit for parents and progeny. Oh, and there’s homemade soft serve.
