suggestions for baby-friendly restaurants in sf/peninsula
I am interested in suggestions for lunch-time locations where I can meet friends and bring my newborn baby. Places that are crowded or loud are out, places with outdoor seating are wonderful. I'd love some ideas for both SF and the Peninsula area.
If you find yourself in Redwood City, a great place is Main Street Coffee Roasters.
They have great coffee (roasted on site) and eclectic breakfast/lunch menu and, best of all, a great outdoor area, complete with a big box of toys and games for the kids.
We've been taking our 3 year old here for a long time. A great place to be with kids and adults.

Park chalet on a good sunny day would be perfect. You can sit outside and even spread out a blanket. I'm not a fan of their new small plates menu, but I think they are now doing a BBQ outside on weekends. I haven't been, but it sounds like fun. The advantage is that there is plenty of parking and room if you re planning to meet a bigger crowd. I've also taken my newborn to Beach Chalet for dinner without any problems. In the Marina, we have frequented Squat & Gobble and the Bay Bread places. Squat & Gobble has outdoor seating, but the crepes are unexciting. In the mission, if you're looking at a weekday, I went to Ti Couz and had a nice lunch with my baby. The table next to mine was a large party and there was another family with a ton of small children. Otherwise, it was pretty empty, so it was not loud or crowded, but had enough background noise that I didn't feel bad if my baby fussed a little.
