The Crumpet Shop [English] This family-run business in Pike Place Market is jam-on-toasty-goodness central. Grab some extra napkins to wipe the sweet, sticky stuff off your kiddo’s chinny-chin-chin. Mums and dads will appreciate the grown-up topping options, which include Stilton and orange marmalade, and the bottomless cuppa tea in a snug, laid-back space. Breakfast and lunch daily. 1503 First Ave.; 206.682.1598;

[Northwest] It might come as a shock that one of the most interesting kids’ menus in Seattle would be found in the sophisticated dining room at Hyatt’s Olive 8. Dishes such as Pick and Dip Salad and whole-wheat spaghetti with turkey meatballs hit the right tone. Toast the neat lineup with a Columbia Gorge strawberry smoothie. Breakfast, lunch and dinner Mon.–Fri., brunch Sat.–Sun. 1639 Eighth Ave.; 206.676.4600;

[GREEK] Mediterranean flavor bombs go off all over the ever-changing menu, and the pint-size set gets looped in, too. Sure, there are crayons and grilled cheese sandwiches at this Tom Douglas place in the Hotel Andra, but the grilled chicken kebab offers proof that food is more fun to eat when it comes on a stick. Kids of all ages will go bonkers for the made-to-order doughnuts for dessert. Breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. 2000 Fourth Ave.; 206.441.1430;

Uneeda Burger
[AMERICAN] (pictured left) Hooray for Painted Hills ground beef sammies, which the whole fam-damily can feel good about eating. Uneeda’s eat-local mission extends to the dynamite fries and spectacular shakes; Snoqualmie ice cream is the creamy foundation for flavors such as salted caramel, providing a tasty geography lesson for the little ones. Lunch and dinner daily. 4302 Fremont Ave. N; 206.547.2600;

Hale’s Ales Brewery & Pub
[PUB GRUB] Mom and pop appreciate the care that goes into the making of the craft brews that have been powering this Fremont mainstay for 30 years, while the kidlets get a charge out of the homey comfort-food fare, which includes meatloaf with mashed taters and the signature, super-cheesy mac and cheese. Yes, please. Lunch and dinner Mon.–Fri.; breakfast, lunch and dinner Sat.–Sun. 4301 Leary Way NW; 206.706.1544;

Stellar Pizza [Pizza] Youth softball and soccer teams pack in with their parents for the thick, hefty, oh-so-cheesy pies at this Georgetown pizzeria. Pitchers of Manny’s feel right (Georgetown Brewing is right down the street, after all), although the beer selection is especially good here. And there’s pinball and a photo booth to keep you busy while you wait for the pie. Lunch and dinner Tue.–Sun. 5513 Airport Way S; 206.763.1660;
