To say life changes after having children is an understatement.

Life changes when your nail salon phases out of your favorite color. Becoming a parent, on the other hand, can make your pre-parenthood life seem unrecognizable. But some aspects of your pre-parenthood days can remain, like going out for dinner, but now as a family.

Taking your kids out for dinner does more than just save you time in the kitchen; it teaches kids important life skills. Even though in the beginning it can be a little painful and stressful for the parents, over time kids will come to understand how dining out is not just a little different, but actually very special.

It might not be possible (or advisable) to try sitting through a seven-course tasting menu close to bedtime, but taking kids out to restaurants that don’t involve fast food is achievable, and enjoyable, in Daytona Beach.

Standing Ovation for Kid-Friendly Restaraunts

Cocina 214

451 S Atlantic Ave, Daytona Beach, FL 32118

Enjoy fresh and authentic Tex-Mex fare, while sitting steps away from the Atlantic Ocean.  Cocina 214 boasts beautiful views from both inside and out, but the real treat is the large “open green space”, with direct access to the beach.  Kids can run around, color with complimentary crayons, or play some corn hole and  jenga while waiting for their favorite homemade tortillas, guacamole and queso blanco.  After the sun has set, sit with them at the outdoor fire pit and listen to the waves crashing as you enjoy tres leches cake.

MidiCi Italian Kitchen

1860 Victory Circle, Daytona Beach, FL 32114

The upbeat Italian eatery is a nestled within the heart of One Daytona, across from the Daytona International Speedway. You and the kids can sit under the beautiful tree located in front of MidiCi’s open kitchen, and watch pizza being tossed, pulled and fired.  Or, you can opt to sit outside and let the kids go wild in the fenced in patio. Enjoy a truffle wood-fired pizza and delicious purple kale and ricotta salad – seriously one of our all time faves- as your kids dance away to the live music steps in front of the restaurant.  The kids pizza’s are both large and inexpensive, and easily feeds two hungry toddlers in between songs. Be sure to check out the photo wall inside the restaurant, or better yet, have your picture taken so you can find it the next time you go back!

All smiles at Daytona One

The Dancing Avocado Kitchen

110 S Beach St, Daytona Beach, FL 32114

Juices squeezed to order, fresh veggies from the Daytona Farmers Market and homemade breads are just a few of the reasons why we love The Dancing Avocado Kitchen.

“Where herbivores and carnivores eat together in harmony”, this eclectic eatery is primarily Vegan, but with plenty of meat-lover options it makes this eclectic eatery suitable for all palettes and dietary restrictions.  It is a seat yourself-style restaurant, so we recommend grabbing one of the colorful (and shaded) front deck mosaic tables surrounded by tropical foliage. Young ones will be entertained by the hustle and bustle of Beach Street and will get a kick out of all the drawings and art on the patio walls.  Our kids love the house pickled cucumbers and carrots, veggie quesadillas and refreshing fruit smoothies.

One extra special touch?  The bathroom is stocked with baby supplies, including spare diapers; how thoughtful! While you are waiting for your meal, explore the kitch decor, nostalgic knick knacks, and dozens and dozens of unique rubber duckies DAK is famous for.  

Jimmy Hula’s 

91 E Granada Blvd, Ormond Beach, FL 32176

Jimmy Hula’s is a fast-casual concept specializing in fish tacos and burgers in a surf shack themed, family-fun, party-style atmosphere. Filled with leather boat-style seats, surf boards, island-themed posters and even an indoor beach hut, Jimmy Hula’s is in our regular rotation of places we enjoy taking the kids. In addition to its brightly colored island decor, Jimmy Hula’s has an open-air patio with large tables, which is great for group get-together after a weekday recital or weekend baseball game. Place your order at the counter – our favorite kid’s choices are the fish nuggets and zucchini fries. For adults, the voodoo tacos and tuna poke bowl are killer. With island music pumping from the speakers and frequent live music, the ambiance is that perfect “loud enough” level  that seems to mute out any crying/yelling/laughing thrown your way.

Serious Brunching at Oceanside Country Club

Oceanside Country Club

75 N Halifax Dr, Ormond Beach, FL 32176

Always welcoming, always family friendly, and always on Sunday, the Oceanside Country Club Breakfast Buffet is our go-to place to take the little ones for weekend brunch.  The traditional “old favorites” of the grille are sure to satisfy any appetite, while the made-to-order omelet station is always fresh and delicious. We love sitting by the window and enjoying spectacular views of the ocean while waiting for our fresh Belgian waffles topped with dollops of whip cream and strawberries.  If the kids get a little antsy towards the end of the meal, we love letting them run around (supervised of course) in the ballroom, to ensure a swift nap time once we get home. It’s a wonderful feeling to be able to dine in a restaurant full of other local families, knowing that your kids are truly welcome; slight mess and all.  It really feels like home to us.

High Tides at Snack Jacks

2805 S Ocean Shore Blvd, Flagler Beach, FL 32136

Whether you’re coming from work, a weekend game, or even a run on the beach, the dress code is as laid back as it gets at Snack Jacks. Secure a spot at one of their outdoor beachside picnic tables and Flagler Beach becomes both your playground and backdrop.  While waiting for your order – our favorites are the fish tacos and blackened fish Reuben – the kids will work up an appetite by splashing around right outside the restaurant. Anytime you can head to the beach and valet your car, its an automatic win for us. However, catching a Florida sunset with the kids, accompanied by beer and fresh seafood, makes this place extra special.

Ormond Brewing Company

301 Division Ave,  Ormond Beach, FL 32174

Breweries are quickly becoming a great place for a family outing, and if you like locally crafted beer and creative cuisine, you’ll love Ormond Brewing Company.  OBC boasts rotating food trucks, live music and games on Friday nights. There are plenty of picnic tables in the brightly painted walls of the Beer Garden, so you can sit back and relax while the kids run around and have a dance party.  The scene gets pretty noisy, which means no one will be hushing your little ones through their meal. Before the music kicks off, kids can play with the“giant jenga” and ring toss outside on the patio. With it’s massive selection of craft beer, OBC is the perfect place to enjoy a cold brew with a tot in tow.
