We get it, Brooklyn. You’ve got a lot going on. So much so that it’s hard to keep up with all the kid-friendly places for jumping and climbing, getting mucky with paints and clay, quiet reading, shopping for some rainbow bling  or filling empty tummies with something delicious. But we try! Click through for 9 fresh places just in Brownstone Brooklyn alone.

For a Taste of Winter: Waffle Cabin

Say hello to Belgian waffles Brooklyn style. Waffle Cabin, a national chain better known for providing sweet sustenance at ski resorts, is set to straight-line into South Slope. There will be limited seating but you'll be able to grab coffee, espresso or cold brew and indulge the kids in a waffle wonderland. According to those in the know, the waffles are best experienced without toppings - but good luck getting your little one out of there without a taste of the dark chocolate, strawberry, marshmallow or caramel extras. Good to know: you can get your waffle virtually any time of day: it's open 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
