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. 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.
