Food Network named Pigtown’s Breaking Bread the best place to eat with kids

The Food Network named Pigtown’s own, Breaking Bread the best place to eat with kids, writing “in warm, sunny environs comfortable for all comers, they offer crowd-pleasing cooking prepared with a touch more flair than you’ll find in the average home kitchen.”

Food Network wrote;

“Caterer-turned-restaurateur Kimberly Ellis owns and operates Breaking Bread with her husband, Edward, and she’s also a mother and grandmother — so it’s no surprise that their Pigtown BYOB goes out of its way to make the entire family happy. In warm, sunny environs comfortable for all comers, they offer crowd-pleasing cooking prepared with a touch more flair than you’ll find in the average home kitchen — look for their signature sweet-and-spicy “stickywings,” plus burgers, salads, seafood and more. But there are also many thoughtful kid-friendly dishes designed to make things a little easier on parents. It’s the perfect menu to explore as you gather for one of their regular game nights, when the restaurant opens its tables up to families looking to spend some old-fashioned quality time together over board games and conversation.”
