We LOVE the food at Thistle Cafe. It's a great departure from what is normally available to families with young children; it's more upscale and there are greater options available than the "family friendly" chains that we usually resort to. The food is fresh and healthy...and delicious! It's a place that can be just as child friendly as it is elegant.
Although Thistle is more upscale that it's alternatives--say Chili's--we find we end up spending the same at Thistle, or less, for a much tastier and high quality meal. The atmosphere is also much more enjoyable.
We especially enjoy the salads, the wraps and the chocolate chip cookies are to die for! Most of the lunch-type entrees come with your choice of side: a large portion of delicious green salad, fruit salad, fries, and more...You really get a lot for your dollar here.
