My husband and I went here for breakfast this morning. We had a lovely table outside with a nice breeze and an excellent waitress. We had the blueberry stuffed french toast and it was divine. Would definitely recommend for breakfast. They also serve lunch.

I don't think so specifically, but virtually everything they have works for kids -- like pancakes, scrambled eggs, etc -- and the food and setting is great. I have often taken young children here.
