Baby/Stroller Friendly Restaurants Midtown?


I am meeting some friends for lunch on Monday and need some ideas of baby/stroller friendly restaurants in the midtown area (the most convenient would be around Yonge and Eg or Avenue and Eg). If it's near those areas I could probably use a carrier and skip the stroller is space is an issue. Baby is 6 months old but NOT a laid back potato baby-- he very well might fuss or make joyful teradactyl-like screeches! Any suggestions would be very welcome.

  1. Luckily, Midtown/Forest Hill is a pretty kid-friendly area.
    Mashu Mashu is very kid friendly and has great food. It's in the Forest Hill Village (Spadina north of St. Clair). It can get crowded in there but you should be okay for a Monday lunch. It can get pretty loud in there which may be ideal with your baby.
    Grazie (for lunch or early dinner) and Ferraro are both very kid friendly (the former has much better food). So is Le Pain Quotidien.

    It's always better to leave the stroller outside or in the car if you can.

    Mashu Mashu
    387 Spadina Rd, Toronto, ON M5P, CA

    2373 Yonge St, Toronto, ON M4P2C8, CA

    Le Pain Quotidien
    508 Eglinton Ave W, Toronto, ON M5N1A5, CA

    Ferraro Restaurant
    502 Eglinton Ave W, Toronto, ON M5N1A5, CA

    1. While the food isn't phenomenal - the Pickle Barrel at Yonge and Eg is very spacious and busy - and is likely used to bebes. I took mine recently and he was amused by the action and very comfy there.

      1. We have taken our now 14 month old to Cha Liu several times - store the stroller at the bar... also, if you want to venture to Mt. Pleasant, the Granite Brewery is not great food but big enough that if she kicks up a fuss (ours), it's no big deal...
