Clover Food Lab (HSQ) is a Food-Truck-Turned-Restaurant located in Harvard Square. Labeled “food lab” for its constantly evolving menu, this kid-friendly vegetarian restaurant is known for its fresh, high-quality, breakfast and lunch options. A cavernous space, electronic sandwich board, and sheets of paper serving as plate and placemat is a welcome change to a typical dining experience.

Fantastic. There are plenty of high chairs and booster seats at this kid-friendly vegetarian restaurant. Open dining space with stark white walls with splashes of color appealing to most kids.
