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 Premium Cup of Coffee: E1

Fast becoming the co-working space de jour, E1 is already a popular spot for families. The Roastery, which opened in April, is open and airy, perfect for navigating with a stroller. Coffee is at the heart of this venture but head to the back through a small corridor and the cafe becomes a restaurant serving brunch, lunch and dinner.  The menu offers unfussy comfort food with a low carbon footprint. Kid faves include mac & cheese casserole, fried chicken, grilled cheese and burgers.
