High Chairs, Changing Tables, and Chicken Fingers- Oh, My!: Baby & Toddler Friendly WNY Restaurants

So we’ve got a munchkin and she has pretty good palette (so far). We’ve become very attuned to restaurants and how baby/toddler friendly they are. But we also adjust to places that may not have some kid stuff. After an explosive response from you guys on our Instagram, we decided to start compiling a list of places and what they have goin’ on regarding small humans.

This is a curated list by us and does not include chains (for the most part) or places that even WE wouldn’t consider taking a tyke. (sometimes ya just don’t) If you think of a place, send it our way. This list will be ever-changing and be updated periodically and hopefully…one day when we have time…be really pretty and professional looking!*

*uhh, how do we do that?!

And if you’re a new parent or just wondering how we handle Chloe when we go out to eat, check out our post on How To Take Your Crazy Toddler To Restaurants.
