You may not have heard of Tangletown, but we bet you’ve passed it, by since it’s nestled between Wallingford and Greenlake. Dense with kid-friendly must-sees, there are plenty of reasons to stop by—we suggest starting at Mighty-O Donuts. About as healthy as a donut can get, Mighty-O makes their goods from certified organic ingredients, including crafting their own organic glazes and chocolate icings! Super friendly staff enjoy chatting with tots about donut choices, and they’ve even got a small stash of books to keep little ones distracted while you sip the local, organic coffee they serve. Next, head down to nearby Meridian Playground, a large park tucked amongst large groves of trees that hide nearby busy streets. If you’ve never experienced Seattle’s Archie McPhee’s, this is a must see. Recently relocated from Ballard, this Seattle icon has been supplying gifts and toys to Seattle since 1983. From oddities like Bacon Floss to standards like rubber ducks and yes, rubber chickens, this quirky kid-favorite is a one stop shop for party supplies, crafts, costumes, miniatures and funky toys and candy. When tummies start rumbling again, Elysian Brewing Company (yep, kid-friendly brewery) offers tasty stuffed mushrooms and Chevre Polenta, along with kid-approved fish and chips and grilled cheese.  Too full to hit Diggity Dogs hot dogs (5421 Meridian Ave N) on your way out? With a full range of dogs, including vegetarian, a full condiment bar, and picnic table-style seating, Diggity Dogs might just be your reason to hit Tangletown again next week.
