The cozy BYOB cafe welcomes kids with their own menu and a nook with books, games and puzzles. Families are usually placed near the play area. Chef-owner-dad Jason Daniloski prepares freshly made meals like a burger slider made with local Roseda Farm beef; fried chicken with mashed potatoes and a vegetable; and grilled cheese and a fruit salad. He also adapts the menu, recently adding a lamb slider, "which a good number of kids enjoyed," said his wife and co-owner Nicole Evanshaw.
