I’ve talked about my kids’ love of Mystic, CT plenty – we come here at least weekly for one activity or another. Due to this, it’s imperative for me to have a list of kid-friendly restaurants in Mystic on hand for when we’re here.
We’ve all been in a situation where our kids get hungry and we walk into a restaurant that’s just not meant for kids.
Too quiet, too fancy, too slow, and too expensive.
When you’re getting a meal with your kids, you want background noise, kid-friendly food options, and lightning-fast food service.
Luckily, Mystic, the town with some of the best kids’ activities in the state, like the Pequot Nature Center for example, has some great kid-friendly restaurants, as well.
So, let’s find out what they are.
7 great kid-friendly restaurants in Mystic, CT
Mango’s Pizza is a great kid-friendly restaurant that’s located in Olde Mistick Village.
I love to take my kids to this place for so many reasons.
The first reason is that the atmosphere is super laid-back and it’s a little bit loud, so if the kids get a little loud, it really doesn’t bother anyone.
Another great reason this restaurant is kid-friendly is the food comes out quickly and everything is really tasty.
If you order a pizza here, your kids will be fed and happy likely within 20 minutes.
