Best Family Restaurant in Los Angeles

It’s no stretch to say that we have the best family restaurant in Los Angeles. Obviously, that’s open to interpretation. There’s quite a bit that goes into a family restaurant. What makes one better than the other almost always comes down to personal taste: what you’re looking for, what your kids are looking for, and ultimately what your family prefers. However, we feel that we have a pretty strong resume to lay claim to the “best.” In the below blog, we’ll go over what makes our family restaurant such a special place for parents and kids. Then, we’ll explain some of what sets us apart and why you might like to come here.

Our Best Family Restaurant in Los Angeles

When you take your kids to a restaurant, they don’t always want to be there. Sure, they might be hungry, and maybe there’s something on the TV they can watch, but they’re kids: they want to run around and have fun. Too many times, when we take kids to a restaurant (even a family one) we don’t want them to be kids: we want them to be adults. The kind of people who can just sit politely at the table, calmly discussing the day’s events while waiting for their food. Of course, many kids can do that, but asking them to do that all the time robs them of an opportunity to truly be… well, kids. That’s one thing that sets our family restaurant apart.

A Place to Eat and Play

Giggles N’ Hugs is more than just a family restaurant, literally. Sure, your kids can sit and eat. But, they can also run around play all of our active games, too. They aren’t just tethered to the table, with only the food to entertain them. They can play, they can run around, they can just enjoy being kids instead of having to just sit there and eat. This can make a better family restaurant experience for the entire family. Instead of having to make sure that your kids are behaving the entire time, they can enjoy their meal and you can, too. Our family restaurant brings the whole family together by giving each what they want.

A Place for Adults, Too

We couldn’t rightly call our location a “family restaurant” if it just had food and drinks for kids. That’s not a “family restaurant,” that’s just a play place. Sure, we’re quite proud of all that we have for kids to enjoy, but we want to be more than that as well. That’s why our restaurant has such good food and entrees for adults, too. Perhaps most importantly, there are adult drinks. You can have coffee, beer, and wine. You can enjoy an adult beverage here. So, you can enjoy being an adult while your kids enjoy being kids. That’s a positive experience for the entire family.

Good, Healthy Food

Pizza’s great. It really is. But an entire diet of just eating pizza is enough to turn someone off of a kid’s place. When we started Giggles N’ Hugs, we realized that so many kids places just had unhealthy food that, frankly, you’d never really want your kids to eat. But, they’re also kids, so they should have the chance to explore food and discover what they love. So, to make the best of both worlds, we have “Tricky Pizzas” and “Tricky Pastas.” The “trick” is, of course, that there are actual pureed fresh vegetables inside the dishes. There’s no “arguing with your kids for hours on end to get them to eat their veggies.” Instead, they get to enjoy the dishes they love while also enjoying the health benefits of vegetables. This is what’s properly called a “win-win.”

Of course, there’s a lot more from our family restaurant than just “tricky pizzas.” There’s plenty of salads, healthy bowls, salmon and more – kids are children, sure, but they’re also human beings. They deserve to have the option to eat good, rich, healthy food. That’s just one more step towards developing healthy habits that will serve them well for the rest of their life. So much about our children is making sure that they have the opportunities that we might not have had at their age. You’re never too early to enjoy a healthy salmon dish, a Greek salad, a bowl of brown rice and chicken, etc.

That all being said, our place has so much more to offer you and your family than just being a restaurant. In fact, if you bring your family to eat here, you’ll probably notice someone having a birthday party at the same time. Many of our deals include your child getting a free month’s membership if they have a birthday here. That’s a perfect time to check out our restaurant for yourself. To see our menu, head to our site or give us a call at (818) 610-4847.

Kids Party Places Near Me – At Your Home


When you’re looking for somewhere to have your kid’s birthday, most people type something like “kids party places near me” into a search engine. That makes sense: it should show you what are the best places in your area to have a kid’s birthday. However, with any of those choices, you’re actually going to have to drive there. You’ll have to load up your kid (and possibly others) to go to a party somewhere that’s a bit of a distance away, no matter how close. There’s a way to have a great birthday for your child that’s even closer: let our “Parties to Go” come to you. In this blog, we’ll discuss what our “Parties to Go” are and how they can make your kid’s party that much more special. We’ll also touch on some reasons you may want to have your party at a specific location.

Kids Party Places Near Me – Parties to Go

With our Parties to Go, you’ll get almost everything you would at our Giggles N’ Hugs locations. You’ll have play attendants in charge, who can oversee things and make sure that everything’s running smoothly. They’ll help to make sure that the party goes as well as possible. We’ll also send along some servers and cooks. So, you’ll have all the great food that you expect from Giggles N’ Hugs as well as someone to serve it to your child and their friends. Party coordinators will tag along, too – they’re there to look over the party and ensure that all of it goes as smoothly as possible. With that large and deep a roster of Giggles N’ Hugs pros at your party, it’s sure to be the kind of experience that your child will cherish for a long time.

All the Party Themes

When we hear “child’s birthday party” it’s natural to think of something kind of subdued: a table with maybe a tablecloth, some cake, a balloon or two and that’s it. That’s not what you’ll get when you hire our Giggles N’ Hugs Parties to Go. Indeed, we give you so much more. We bring the full complement of party decorations. That means that we can bring one of our legendary party themes on the road. So, your child can have the full themed party that they might have had in our indoor location. On top of that, we also have tables and chair rentals, too. So, if you’re doing this at a park or other location, you don’t have to worry about bringing all the furniture in your house along with you. That’s just the beginning.

Activities for All

A child’s birthday party that isn’t in an indoor party playspace normally seems like it might be pure chaos: kids running around, some kids just sitting motionless, in other words, not the healthiest environment. With our Parties to Go, they’re so much more than that: we make sure that there are arts and crafts for the kids to do, as well as many other forms of exciting entertainment. You can pick and choose from our list of entertainment choices. That way, your kids can have a party that’s perfectly tailored to their wants and desires. We can even bring bounce houses, too. We’ve found that few things make children happier than to bounce up and down in a bounce house for a period of time.

Food to All

Kid’s party food is, in general, a sad lot. It’s usually some kind of pizza, maybe some cake, and that’s about it. That’s not what we do here at Giggles N’ Hugs. That same commitment to good food extends to our Parties to Go as well. We can bring food along for your party that’s actually good food. This isn’t something that was just thrown into a microwave or something that’s been breaded beyond all consideration – we bring you fresh, organic food that the kids are going to want to eat. Of course, it will also have all the health benefits that are associated with healthy, organic food as well.

Many times, there’s one specific reason that parents don’t want to have a party outside of an indoor party play place: they have to clean up. Our party professionals will clean up for you. We bring the party to you, and we’ll clean it up after you, too. You don’t have to worry about cleaning up after the party that your child will cherish for many years. You can just go off into the night, flush with the memories of a party well-spent. Even though we have great Parties to Go, you’re always welcome at our wonderful partyplaces as well, of course.

A Week at Our Children’s Party Places

There’s so much for kids to do at our children’s party places. If you’ve been reading these blogs for any length of time, you might already know about the active games, the great food, and so much more. That being said, there’s a lot more to our party places than just parties. Of course, parties are a major part of Giggles N’ Hugs, but we have so much more than that to offer.  In this article, we’ll take you through some of the events that you can find in a given week at our locations. Then, we’ll lay out some other ways that you can party at Giggles N’ Hugs.

Children’s Party Places Calendar

Parties are a major focus of Giggles N’ Hugs, but they aren’t the only way to have fun. For example, if you look closely, you’ll notice that the birthday child has a free month of play time at Giggles N’ Hugs when you party with us. That means that they can come in for free during that month and have fun here beyond just their birthday. You can always stop by our restaurant as well to have our fresh, organic food. There are different activities every day at Giggles N’ Hugs. An easy way to find out about what’s going on here is to click on “Locations” and then choose one of our two options, “Topanga” or “Glendale.” Then, you’ll be able to see what’s going on in our calendar.

Homework Happy Hour

Just because your kids may be too young for happy hour at a bar, that doesn’t mean they’re too young to enjoy getting away from homework. That’s exactly what you’ll find at our “Homework Happy Hour.” That means during the weekday, from Monday through Friday, from 3 to 5 there are special deals on food. Typically, it means that there’s $2 off kids appetizers and meals. Of course, we understand that parents have had a long day at work by this time. That’s why we make sure that they get a happy hour special, too. Beer, wine, and mimosas are only $5 during this time. So, your kids can enjoy their meal while the parents take the edge off, too.

Special Games throughout the Day

Sure, we’re proud of our large kid’s play place, but there are so many other activities for kids to take advantage of at Giggles N’ Hugs. Many of our special games are set in advance, as you’ll notice from our calendar. For example, “arts and crafts” shows up on Monday. “Kid’s Karaoke” is on Tuesday.  Often, we’ll have “free cookie/cupcake decorating” on Wednesday. You’ll notice the last is written in all capital letters on our schedule – that’s not a typo, that’s an accurate representation of how much fun it is to decorate those and then eat them. It’s entirely worthy of all capital letters. You’ll also notice that these activities are written twice in a day. That’s because we run them twice in one day. If you miss them in the afternoon, you still have a chance to partake in them later in the evening. We know how busy everyone is, and we want to give you the chance to have the most fun possible with your kids.

Entrance Deals

We’re always looking for ways to give more people the opportunity to bring their kids to Giggles N’ Hugs. We don’t want to be a place you just come for your child’s birthday – we want to be the place you come to when it’s time to have family fun. That’s why we offer “free play Mondays.” Even children understand how Monday is not necessarily considered the most fun day of the week. They know it’s the furthest from the weekend. So, to keep Monday from having a bad rap, we offer free admission for your kids with the price of one adult meal. “Toddler Time” is exactly what it sounds like: kids two and below can play for free during that time. “Two for One Tuesdays” means that you get a second child’s admission for free is you pay for one. “Wacky Wednesday” means there’s $8 admission all day long. We’re always looking for ways to bring in more kids.

Of course, with all of that being said, Giggles N’ Hugs is always associated with parties. That’s good with reason: we have incredible parties all the time here. We can help you to put together the party for your child that they’ll remember for their entire lives. You can have a semi-private party, or you can even have a private party. Indeed, if you still have our calendar open, you may probably notice some “closed for private event” times blocked off. To schedule a party or anything else, give us a call at (818) 610-4847 or head to our site.

The Best Kids Birthday Parties1

The Best Kids Birthday Parties

There’s so much that goes into determining what are the best kid’s birthday parties. The first, most important metric is: “is the party fun for the child?” That’s what matters most, in the end. You want your kid to have the best birthday possible. Your child is always the star of your life. On their birthday, it’s their one day to shine brightest for all. You want to give them a birthday party that truly reflects that, in front of their friends, family and others. In this article, we’ll show how we can make that come true here at Giggles N’ Hugs, as well as lay out some parties that we offer.

Best Kid’s Birthday Parties Here

We have multiple kinds of parties here at Giggles N’ Hugs. Our two main kinds of parties are “Semi-Private” and “Private.” Semi-Private is exactly what it sounds like: it’s a birthday party for 15 to 50 kids, but there might also be some other children enjoying the playplace at the same time. Of course, you’ll still have a dedicated section of the restaurant with seating for every single one of your guests. We’ll take care of all the set up and planning; that’s just one of the many things that you won’t have to worry about for your party. On top of that, you’ll also have servers focused on your party and your party alone. Instead of having to wait for food and drink, it’ll be right out to you when you want it how you want it.

Party Activities

One thing all of our parties enjoy are hosted activities every fifteen minutes. We’ve found that helps to keep the kids invested in the party the whole way through. Children want to have fun; they want to run around having fun and being free. That being said, sometimes a hosted activity is perfect for getting all of the kids involved in the fun that might not have partaken otherwise. Each of our hosts are true pros who have been doing this for a long time. They know how to make sure the kids are having the most fun possible in a safe and supportive environment.

The Best Kids Birthday Parties

Food, Drink and More

You’ll have unlimited food and drink options at our semi private as well as private parties. For example, at the semi private parties, you’ll have all the iced tea, soda, lemonade and fruit punch that you could want. Of course, we understand that the parents at a party might want to have a pick me up, too. That’s why we make it so that you can have unlimited coffee as well. Private parties give you an unlimited beverage package too of your choice. With the semi private parties, you’ll have food for all the kids and adults. With a private party, you’ll have unlimited food for all the kids and adults. It’s important to point out that so much of our food is delicious as well as fresh and organic. So, it’ll taste great while giving you plenty of health benefits, too.

Semi Private Parties for Royalty

We know that on your child’s birthday, they’re true royalty. Of course, they are every other day of the year, but it’s especially true on their birthday. That’s why we named our semi private party options “Duke and Duchess,” “Prince and Princess” as well as “King and Queen” respectively. The difference between the parties is just how much food they offer. It’s important to remember that kosher options are available as well, so that all of our party guests can enjoy the food.

Party extras are one of the best ways to take your kid’s party to the next level. We want you to have a birthday party that’s perfect for your child. That means that everything has to be as perfect for what your child wants as possible. So, you can bring a photo booth with unlimited photos to the birthday party. You can have a puppet show or a magic show. You can even have a CJ or a chocolate fountain. A petting zoo, a bubbleologist, a balloon artist – all of these things are possible for your child’s birthday party. You just have to say the word.

We understand that offering so many different options for your child’s birthday party can be a bit overwhelming. Your child’s birthday is one of those things that you want to get exactly right. We understand, which is why we’re always willing to help. We love talking to parents about how we can put together the best possible party for their kids. We can walk you through every step of the process, listening to your needs, so that we can make the best party possible. Just give us a call at (818) 610-4847 or head to our site to start.
