Breastfeeding friendly restaurants...

  • 9

Never thought I'd be posting this topic, but hey, things change. Anyhow, I've got a little one now. I just checked the city's list of breastfeeding friendly restaurants. It's painfully short. Can anyone suggest a few spots where it's ok to breastfeed? I'm in Riverdale/Leslieville.

    1. Folks, if you have specific local suggestions for grandgourmand, please post them, but general discussions (pro or con) of breast feeding in restaurants are beyond the scope of this board.

      Thank you.

        Grapfruit Moon south of Dupont on Bathurst...user friendly for sure.

          I'm not familiar with the area, but I find that anywhere with booths worked well for me. I would usually ask the host/hostess to seat me in a quieter area.

      2. I've seen the breast-feeding-friendly sticker on the door at the Second Cup near Chester & Danforth - not really a restaurant, but somewhere you can stop in quickly. I've also seen people feeding there.

        1. The big Greek restaurants on the Danforth are friendly; Astoria even has a special washroom with very good changing facilities. Ten Feet Tall on Danforth just east of Greenwood is kid and breastfeeding friendly.

          1. The asian restos we frequent (Chinese, Japanese and Korean) are all quite accommodating. If it is not super busy and you can find a corner seat, nobody seems to mind. Even in a dim sum resto with moderate traffic. But I agree, babies need to eat whereever they want just as much as us!

              I was just thinking of that...I've been wanting to try the Grand for a while now and from the sounds of it, it's not too busy, which could be perfect.

            2. And if you want a trip out of town, the restaurant at the Niagara College Teaching Winery is very friendly and supportive.
