Age Appropriate: All ages!
Hi, I'm Juliette! My husband, my 6-year-old and I love going out to eat and we are sharing our restaurant finds with you.
We stopped by Barnaby's Cafe on Shepherd this week (one of their several locations). As I am writing this, it is pouring rain and thundering and I can't believe we had a lovely patio dinner Sunday evening! We have friends that live across the street and that ate there almost daily while their house was being remodeled. Barnaby's became their second kitchen and we definitively thought of them!
I think the style is best described as whimsical and fun. The feel is very comfortable and happy and their side patio is shaded and cozy. Their well-equipped bathroom continues the dog theme with fun wall stickers and my son's new favorite accessory: a mouthwash dispenser!
The menu is great and offers fresh and healthy treats. We started with their homemade guacamole and chips. We know we shouldn't have because it was so delicious and addictive we kept saying we had to stop eating but couldn't. Their guacamole was chunky and not too spicy, which pleased my son!
The ambiance was wonderful and we really enjoyed our dinner. We knew that eating outside was going to be on hold until October so we took our time! We then enjoyed a nice stroll at the River Oaks Shopping center, one block north of Barnaby's Cafe.
So, as soon as it dries up outside, take advantage of a great cafe that offers great healthy fares in a dog-friendly environment your kids are sure lo like!
See you next week for another culinary adventure!
