City Kids: Brunch at Jake’s American Grill
My affinity for brunch did not decrease when I had kids. But the feasibility of waiting in a long line to have that brunch definitely did. Luckily, I heard through the grapevine recently about the weekend kids’ brunch at Jake’s American Grill.
Jake’s is welcoming families with young kids with open arms. The lower level was fully outfitted with games, crafts, and activities. The TVs were tuned to Sesame Street and other kid favorites (and staff were willing to take requests when Sponge Bob was a bit too much for our toddlers). The crowning jewel, however, was the dedicated childcare provider who was available to play games, color, or just keep an eye on them while the grownups enjoy a mimosa.
The staff of Jake’s was eager to see us and spread the word about their kids’ brunch. We arrived early due to our nap schedule, and we had the place to ourselves. Later, other families and groups arrived and the place filled up.
The brunch menu offered a number of typical offerings, as well as some snazzier egg dishes.
