Overview:

When a restaurant gets equally high praises for over 15 years from Gourmet Magazine to The Boston Globe, to Daily Candy Kids and local families as a top kid-friendly Cambridge restaurant, then you know they are doing something right. Full Moon has it all when it comes to dining out with kids: ever-changing menu featuring seasonal ingredients, play space, craft beer and wine, sippy cups, kid’s menu and a gracious staff.

Red star_15x15 Located in the quiet Huron Village neighborhood, there is limited street parking that does not require a permit. All spots are open after 6pm and on Sundays and holidays.

Play space adjacent to the dining room

KidTude:

Fantastic. The highchairs are stacked high. Each table comes with crayons, white craft paper, and a plastic bucket of toys. And it’s hard to miss the play space in the back.

Red star_15x15 During peak hours, the dining room at this kid-friendly Cambridge restaurant can get pretty loud. There is a corner tucked behind the register screened off for diners (mostly without kids) who want to eat in some peace and quiet.

Main Menu:

The menu is extensive, which changes seasonally and includes daily specials. The soup of the day comes with freshly baked Iggy’s bread ($4 for a cup). Dinner items run the gamut from Grilled Sirloin with Blue cheese Butter and Fries ($20), to Pernil Cubano (slow cooked latin-spiced shredded pork with mixed rice and beans – $20), to Penne Puttanesca ($17).

Favorites include:

  • Soup of the Day
  • Huevos Rancheros
  • Grilled Sirloin with Blue Cheese Butter, Fries and Arugula Salad
  • Mussels & Portuguese Chorizo in Smoky Tomato Cumin Stew

Kid’s Menu:

Mac & Cheese

The kid’s menu includes the basics – mac & cheese ($7), hot dog & fries ($5), chicken fingers & fries ($7), cheese pizza ($6) and cheddar quesadilla ($5). All items are served with fresh melon, orange and carrot sticks. Although nothing adventurous, everything is made from scratch and comes out quickly.
