It's actually located just off 9th St. on Perry St., but we could still easily park in the Ninth Street lot and walk a block down the street to get there. It is hidden away on the second story of a building that also houses Ninth Street Dance. This actually made it more of a fun adventure for the kids. They felt like they were heading to a secret hideaway as they headed up the stairs to the entrance of the restaurant.
Once inside we ordered our food and found a table overlooking the street. Turns out I was worried about the kid-friendliness for no reason. It wasn't mobbed with college kids at all. While we were there all of the other patrons were families just like us. While they didn't have a special kids menu, they did have a quesadilla, which is one of our kiddos' favorites. They were huge as well, so we only had to order one and split it between the boys. We also got a queso and chips for all of us to split and delicious meals for my husband and I. We had a great time eating our meal and watching the street below.
What we liked: The food was delicious and it's hidden location with a view was a fun treat for the munchkins. It was also very reasonably priced.
What we would change: You do have to go up a skinny flight of stairs to get to the restaurant so you couldn't take a stroller and kids and carseats would be harder to lug up the stairs. Oh well, I just thought of it as a little arm exercise!
