Dining out alfresco
In addition, eating outdoors with kids is special - not only for them, but for you. They get to enjoy eating someplace other than the kitchen or dining room table, and you don't have to worry quite as much about their food making it to the floor and staining the rug (you should still clean it up, though).
There are several great spots in town where you can enjoy a kid-friendly meal outdoors that someone else cooks:
- Palio's rooftop patio offers an elevated view of downtown. Seating is more ample than other places, but still sometimes difficult to come by.
- Cafe Felix has evolved from a coffee house to a French cafe-style restaurant perfect for people watching.
- Panera Bread offers soups, sandwiches, coffee and free wi-fi. Outdoor seating is usually plentiful.
- Creekside Grill & Bar (Scio Township) is a casual American restaurant with a large deck.
