🙂 = Plenty of kid/toddler customers. Open, spacious dining area. Warm, homey décor that makes parents and kids feel comfortable. Tasty, Asian-inspired small plates. A variety of caffeinated (coffee/milk tea) drinks for sleep-deprived mommies and daddies + fruit smoothies for kids that don’t taste overly sugary.
🙁 = Rustic Couch has a true café setup, where you order food at the counter, then sit at a table. Servers bring your drinks and food to your table, but you have to get water, utensils, and plates from a designated service area toward the back of the restaurant. TIP: If you are dining alone with small children, you should aim to sit toward the back of the restaurant, beside this service station; or in the back room. This will allow you to get items you need while keeping an eye on your little ones. No changing table in the women’s restroom. Portions are medium-sized, so parents should not come here starving and expecting a feast.
