Often when we do a post on family-friendly restaurants, the usual suspects come to mind including Rocky Mountain Flatbread, White Spot, and Burgoo.

While all three of these places do indeed offer a welcoming space and good food, we thought we’d seek out a few more restaurants to add to the list.

1. Sunshine Diner

While we love Moderne Burger, this other diner on West Broadway is also a big hit with the kids. Comfy red booths, fun 50s memorabilia, and a nice little kids menu with some healthy options all make the Sunshine Diner a perfect choice for a weekend brunch. Yes, brunch! Their eggs benny are really good.

2. Hitoe Sushi

Japanese restaurants often work quite well for families, but Hitoe Sushi on West 4th Ave is an especially lovely little spot to introduce your kids to maki rolls. This eatery is brightly decorated inside, there are affordable lunch specials, you can choose brown rice, and they even have a special kids menu. Oh and the best part? You are gifted with a pocky packet (Japanese cookie sticks) on your way out.

3.Trattoria Kitchen

Yes, it’s part of a chain, but this inviting and busy Italian restaurant on West 4th Ave offers a great family deal – on Monday nights, after 4pm, kids under 8 eat free! Plus there’s booth seating available, kids are given colouring sheets, and they get a special bambini menu to choose their favourite pasta meal from.

4. Las Margaritas

What kid doesn’t love rice and beans? Las Margaritas on West 4th Ave offers Cal-Mex dishes in a lively atmosphere that the whole family will enjoy. Free chips & salsa to start, generous portions for the mains, and friendly service throughout. And for parents, how about a delicious strawberry margarita on their spacious outside patio?
