OKC Saturdays With a Toddler
Life can look a little different exploring the city with a toddler, so we tend to gravitate towards local, family-friendly environments that make this community feel even more like home. Here are a few places around OKC that we like to share with our little.
3325 N Classen Boulevard, Oklahoma City, OK 73118 | 405-602-2883
Café Kacao is hands-down our favorite place to eat in this city. Sean tends to go for the sweet stuff - that Lechera sauce will set you free - and I usually order a more traditional Latin plate. Whatever we order, we have never been disappointed! This place is a pretty popular eat among the locals (give us ALL THE GUATEMALAN FOOD), so on weekend mornings you can typically expect a wait. Pro tip: use the "Nowait" app to score a spot in line on your way there! website
1325 N Walker Avenue, No. 138, Oklahoma City, OK 73103 | 405-534-4540
Commonplace's Saturday morning "Storytime for Littles" is our happy-place. The staff is so thoughtful in making the bookstore a place for everyone. Creating conversation, cultivating friendship, and challenging our children to be the best humans they can be - this place is truly a gem. And word on the street is that The Kitchen at Commonplace will be opening soon! website
Okay Yeah Co. (This location has closed)
705 W Sheridan Avenue, Oklahoma City, OK 73102 | 405-748-0718
Okay Yeah has all the dreamy vibes of a rustic coffee shop + plant shoppe lovechild. Delicious espresso drinks, homemade hand tarts (Strawberry Cactus Pear is a personal favorite of ours), and open space for Townes to roam, this shop is our favorite family-friendly stop to get our caffeine fix recharge for the rest of the day. And all the parents said, "Amen!"
727 NW 23rd Street, Oklahoma City, OK 73103 | 405-528-2122
Our last stop before heading back home for a nap is usually Cuppies. Just a quick pop-in to let Townes get his last few wiggles out and split a Sassafrass cupcake (and maybe even sneak a second one home for myself). This spot feels so homey, and the staff is as friendly as can be. Sean & I have been enjoying Cuppies for years - we took engagement photos here, had a bridal shower here, AND took first-anniversary photos here - so it is a ton of fun to make new memories here with our son.
