Feast at Fun Family Restos

Kids love the Old Spaghetti Factory for its 100-year-old carousel, dine-in subway car and 16 kinds of pasta. Wayne Gretzky’s scores with hockey enthusiasts everywhere. Ice-like tabletops and museum-style tribute areas create a whole new dining arena. For a hit of Cal-Mex flavour, savour quesadillas and fajitas at Hernando’s Hideaway. Winner of Where‘s 2007 MMM award for Best Family Dining, 30-year-old The Pickle Barrel serves all-day breakfast, low-carb options and “dinosaur” chicken nuggets and fries. Uptown, enter the jungle at the Rainforest Café, a movie-set-like tropical safari with roaring elephants, simulated thunder and lightning, and a varied menu. Enjoy American-style diner nosh and rock-‘n’-roll memorabilia at the Hard Rock Café, where tykes can colour a guitar-toting Gene Simmons menu while eating yummy Jimi Tendersticks.
