The experience Today I had a day off with no commitments, appointments or anything else that I had to do, so I thought we should go out to breakfast.  Unfortunately, pickings are getting VERY slim for breakfast choices that we haven’t eaten at already this year!  The only restaurant that I could think of that [...]

The experience One of my friends from high school contacted me and I was able to get a hold of her after I finished rounding.  Just like that we made lunch plans.  Thank goodness it was cool with Ogre ’cause I’d already made plans with a place and time for lunch in a couple of [...]

The experience Last night’s storm made for a later morning for me this morning and, thus, later getting home from rounding.  I suggested we get a quick bite for lunch somewhere and Ogre did not want to waste a meal out so he turned it into our childsplate adventure for the day.  We decided on [...]

The experience Team Phipps was in a going out to breakfast kind of mood today.  I finished rounding and found the kids and Ogre just about ready to head out.  Problem was that we had no idea where we could this morning.  We wanted to kill two birds with one stone, so Ogre headed to [...]

The experience We were headed down to Austin for the weekend for the benefit concert for our friend, Leah, who is battling cancer.  Grace said it would be fun to go back to an old favorite from when we lived in Austin, Fonda San Miguel.  We hadn’t been here in about 12 years!  We had [...]

The experience Apparently Dusty wanted pancakes.  It didn’t matter the time since when I got home ready for lunch at 1:30, we were going to be getting pancakes.  And, Benji was still asleep from his midmorning nap.  Okie doke.  We brainstormed about a restaurant that would be serving pancakes at 2 o’clock in the afternoon.  [...]

The experience We planned an excursion today at Fair Park, so we were deciding to either go to La Duni or to Dream Cafe.  We have some friends in town (you met them at Cafe Izmir the other night) and there was a chance that they might meet us for brunch -except that when we [...]

The experience Grace was working late again this morning, so she advised I take the kids to breakfast if we were to do anything today.  So, one I got the kids ready we headed out with no place in mind.  I’m not really a breakfast fan so my knowledge of breakfast restaurants is limited.  Mina [...]

The experience I finally have a day off today and suggested we eat breakfast with Benji.  I jokingly mention Poor Richard’s Cafe.  When it was finally time to head out for breakfast/lunch (it was already almost eleven by this time), Ogre headed to Poor Richard’s Cafe.  

The experience Today I was home around lunch time and was anticipating going to the dentist at 1 o’clock.  I asked Ogre if he wanted to have lunch with me and he accepted.  I’d be getting a bonus though as Benji would be coming with us!  I wanted to have lunch at Amado’s as I [...]

About Child's Plate chronicles our journey to find the perfect family restaurant. We are looking for restaurants with excellent food and a great attitude towards kids, even the whiny, cranky ones! We will be headed out to a different restaurant every single day to provide ourselves (and you) with some entertainment and good information about DFW area restaurants. We hope you will visit frequently and use our experiences to create some fun dining experiences of your own! Watch out, DFW, the Phipps family is going out to eat!
