Kid-friendly San Diego chow
My two Northern California kids and I will be visiting your fair city next spring to see all the cool spots: LegoLand, Seaworld, the Zoo. We'll be staying at a place in Mission Bay. Any kid-friendly chowspots near any of these locations? Also: any recommendations about places to eat at LegoLand/Seaworld/the Zoo? Thanks in advance!...
Near legoland is tri tip meats which is a deli/restaurant that is inexpensive and more or less self serve. Food is very good they serve b.l.and dinner.
Near mission bay is a breakfast lunch place called the broken yolk. Look in the Reader magazine in the food section for the $2 discount coupons.
Nugent's Seafood Restauraunt (off Carmel Valley Road) is very child friendly (owned by a couple with kids).
Also, for breakfast near Legoland consider Pipes in Cardiff--big patio, good breakfasts.
I had some friends visiting recently with 5 and 2 year olds. We had lunch at Old Town Mexican Cafe, in Old Town. It's a great family place, the kids loved the mariachis that came around to our table, and they have great pozole.
Corvette Diner in Hillcrest (5th just N of University) for kitchy 50s theme. Big place with good malts and burgers, and waitresses with gum-snapping attitude. Plenty of kids and noise. Inexpensive. No reservations as far as I know. Usually a short wait.
