These Seattle restaurants aren’t just fun places to eat; they’re kid-friendly too. Expand your family’s culinary horizons at one of these sweet eateries.



Taqueria Tequila

Taqueria Tequila sits just kitty-corner from Fred Meyer in Greenwood, located in what looks like a strip mall. Don’t let looks deceive you: Taqueria Tequila is hopping. Their Tequila Burritos are their standout menu item, but they’re also enormous; two people could easily share one. Kids will dig their quesadillas. 301 NW 85th St, Seattle, 98117



Puerto Bonito

Puerto Bonito’s bright rainbow décor is part of what makes its atmosphere so family-friendly, but it’s also the incredibly helpful, kind staff and the delicious, super-hearty portion sizes. Kids will love the crispy, meat-filled flautas; go for a burrito if your appetite is insatiable. 630 NW Richmond Beach Rd, Shoreline, 98177


Maple Leaf

Kona Kitchen

Kona Kitchen’s classic Hawaiian lunch and breakfast fare comes in super-sized portions. The menu is great for kids, with Hawaiian sweetbread french toast, build-your-own omelettes and pigs-in-a-pancake. Standouts include the Waimea plate lunch and Hawaiian-style fried rice. 8501 5th Ave NE, Seattle, 98115


Jebena Cafe

If you haven’t sampled Ethiopian cuisine with your kids, it’s time to try. Jebena Cafe’s great injera lunch plates, with multiple lentil-based dips to sample, are not only tasty, they’re totally charming to kids who get to tear off strips of bread and – gasp – eat with their hands. Plus, their fare is both vegan- and vegetarian-friendly1510 NE 117th St, Seattle, 98125




Hit up Bongos for great Caribbean fare: shrimp po boys, jerk chicken sandwiches, citrus-braised pork, and more. Make sure to nab some yucca fries to go with your sandwich. 6501 Aurora Ave N, Seattle, 98103


Beacon Hill

El Quetzal

El Quetzal’s spectacular Mexican cuisine will charm even the pickiest eater. If you’re feeling experimental, try a huarache – a thick corn tortilla-like base topped with meat, cheese, and veggies. 3209 Beacon Ave S, Seattle, 98144
