Food halls are quickly sweeping the city and it’s easy to see why—they allow you to outwit LA traffic and get your errands done all while you eat dinner. We rounded up the city’s very best one-stop shops to grab a bite with kids and take something home for later.

Olive & Thyme

This is the perfect spot to spend a lazy weekend morning at breakfast. Order up and grab a seat in the casual, humming dining hall, perfect for eating out with not-so-quiet kids. The hardest part about eating here is trying to decide between all the amazing options. Bellies-filled, browse the shop for some unique take-home finds from artisanal cheeses and deli salads to decadent baked goods and gourmet candy bars, like Mast Brothers chocolate. They even carry candles, soaps, and household items.

Kids Will Love: The pancakes piled high and topped with Nutella, strawberries, and strawberry whipped cream are sure to be a hit. You definitely won’t be able to leave without picking some of the rainbow sprinkle-covered cookies and giant brownie bars to take home.
