Hartford Coffee Company has blocked off the back half of their restaurant to cater to their youngest customers - the ones whose moms order cherrios, goldfish crackers and animal crackers for them from the menu, and enjoy a cup of coffee while their children play. Really, those things are on the menu! There is a train table and a toy box full of other toys, a ride on scooter, a small rocking chair, and a bookshelf full of books (toys are suitable for toddlers and preschoolers). The kid area has only one exit into the rest of the restaurant so it's easy to keep an eye on your kid while enjoying much needed mommy time. They even have a changing table in the rest room. The only downsides are that kids are messy, so the floor in the kid area is littered with snacks, which the little ones help themselves to (gross!). Also, there is a trash can that does not have a lid in this area of the restaurant (by the fountain drinks), and my daughter thought it was funny to throw toys into it. Not so funny for mom to fish them out...
