The Four Points area in Austin has an incomparable number of restaurants with playscapes scattered around, but if you’re like me you tend to stick with the same tried and true restaurants without venturing out to find more. Well, here’s a map and list compiled to help you venture out and try a new place while keeping your kiddos happy. Win win! Let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org if I missed any or if you have additional feedback about any of these places.
Austin’s Greater Four Points Area
As I’ve mentioned before, Cups and Cones has a great indoor play area for young kiddos that includes toys and books. My photo doesn’t serve it justice – sorry!
Mexican food is always a crowd-pleaser in our house and I know many of my friends regularly eat out at Flores for this reason (as well as their awesome playground). You can read about the 4 reasons you should check out Flores Mexican Restaurant in my recent post.
Did you know the Four Points McDonalds has a decent indoor play area for toddlers? There is not much seating in there, but it’s great when you’re in a jam and need a quick, cheap, and kinda healthy (chicken and apple slices aren’t that bad, right?)
Get your food to go and walk two minutes across parking lot to find a nice playscape.
We love Napa Flats for date nights and with the kiddos. My recent review of Napa Flats tells you all about why it’s a go-to for my family.
They don’t have a true playground, but there is a cute play house for kiddos. Plus, they have the best chicken parmigiana around!
Oasthouse overlooks the same patio as Flores Mexican Restaurant. The playground is great!
Rudy’s recently put in a great playground on the north side of the restaurant (next to the patio seating area). I recently reviewed it in my Dining A La Playground post!
They don’t have a true playground, but there’s a bounce house and a kiddie coin-operated ride.
My post about Ski Shores Cafe and its playground fills you in on the food, playground and lakeside views.
Get your food to go and walk a few stores over to find a nice playscape.
