Twin Cities Brunch w/ young kids

MissouriBoy Feb 21, 2009 12:10 PM

It's my wife's birthday and she'd like a nice brunch with the family. The family means 3 kids under the age of 5, who are generally well behaved. I want to be considerate of other diners, and therefore, would like a place that's nice, not too fancy, and where kids are welcome. Any suggestions?

    Maria's on Franklin might be a good bet. It's big, so you probably won't have to wait (I find having to wait for for a table the kiss of death with little ones--and a reason I would advise against Day by Day at a popular breakfast time). Maria's is pretty casual, bustling, has live music, and offers great food. Yummy corn pancakes.

      Day by Day in St Paul. I see little ones there regularly and they have toys around.

        I would also consider the Good Day Cafe in St. Louis Park (the north side of 394 and Xenia).

          I always see kids when I brunch at Town Talk Diner. I think they have a great brunch, I especially like the hash and the eggs benedict (and the bloody marys).
