We’ve all been there, right? Dinner time is coming, you’re exhausted from a long day at work, and no one wants to cook. But where can you go that has something for your mature, foodie palettes aaannnd something for the kiddos?
Your stomach turns at the thought of fast food, and your face says “ugh” when you think of all the same greasy food options. Couldn’t there be a simpler solution? Wouldn’t it be great to have a budget-friendly option for mealtime that didn’t involve a drive thru or ordering pizza?
Part of the fun of eating out as a family is the change of scenery, a breath of fresh air from staying at home all day, or simply an extra excuse to get out of the house and change things up a bit.. So why not visit a kid-friendly restaurant that has something for everyone? At East Bay Deli, there’s a kid’s menu for the littles, and a wide range of options for moms and dads or aunts and uncles or grandparents….or anyone!!!
So, grab the stroller and the kids and head to your neighborhood EBD. Our spacious dining room is open so you’re welcome to dine inside, or you can enjoy your meal outside at our umbrella-covered patio tables. And if it’s just been one of those days and you have an overtired, tantrum-prone toddler on your hands, order online for some DELIcious cuisine for pickup or have it delivered to you. We’re a family-owned restaurant, so we understand family dining may look different depending on the day everyone’s had!
What Kind of Food is There for Kids?
Parents, explore our authentic New York Deli style menu of sandwiches, salads, spuds, and desserts without worrying about finding something the kids will eat as well. To help family mealtime run smoothly, we’ve created a kids menu for children under 10 stacked with options so even the picky eaters in the bunch can find something they’ll take more than a few bites of, ‘cause we all know how that goes!
From hotdogs to chicken fingers, cheese quesadillas to PBJ, corn dogs to mac ‘n’ cheese, we have all of the kid favorites! Any of our traditional sandwiches can be ordered kid-sized as well (half a sandwich), for kids who may be more adventurous or have started insisting their meal looks like what Dad has. All kids’ meals come with a side item and a drink. Now, all the bases are covered!
Crayons and coloring sheets come standard at all of our locations for the young ones who want an activity to keep their hands busy while they’re not dunking a chicken finger in ketchup or ranch or whatever sauce is the “have to have it on everything” sauce this week. ;)
Before you corral everyone out the door, don’t forget to check out the dessert case. There is a sweet option there for the whole family, and may we say, our Juniors® chocolate cake or carrot cake is sure to hit the spot! Even if you don’t want to give the kiddos any sugar, you’ll want to grab something for yourself to enjoy after everyone’s in bed. Trust us, it’s worth it.

Best Kids Night in Town
Can you believe it gets better?! Once a month, each of our kids night locations hosts a craft night or special event for the youngsters as well. Past kids nights have included hand painting, ornament making, and glitter tattoos. Summertime brings extra fun, like a kids night of ice cream with sprinkles! Who needs a germy indoor play area or kid zone when you can make your own superhero mask or write a letter to Santa?! There’s something different and fun all year long.
Monthly craft or special event kids nights take place on a recurring schedule to make it easy to remember. Mark your calendars, parents! We’ll plan the event AND make the food. You don’t even have to help with the dishes. ;) Follow us on Facebook or Instagram to see what the new kids night activity will be each month.
