Do not tell my husband, but my goal is to visit every single Barnaby's Cafe in Houston. There are 7 locations... and we've visited 4 (over and over again).
I just love that they are fun, funky and named for the owner’s childhood pal, the sheepdog named Barnaby, and is full of sheepdog art. And, as you might guess, a restaurant decorated with dogs is pretty kid friendly. There are coloring sheets and a kids menu.
Half the restaurant is Baby Barnaby's (which is open for breakfast) and half the restaurant is Barnaby's (which is open for lunch and dinner).
The restaurant is small, with low ceilings... covered in dogs and bright colors. The place was packed on a weekday lunch... so I did not get any pictures inside!
We picked a table on the small patio at Baby Barnaby's but ordered from the regular menu.
Sitting away from the crowds did not slow down lunch at all... and it was another great Barnaby's visit.
