Did you know that the school and neighborhood ranking site Niche rates Corinth as No. 10 in the “Best Places to Raise A Family in Denton County” category? With an “A” in public schools and jobs, it’s no wonder they’ve also rated our beautiful city within the top 100 for “Best Suburbs to Raise a Family” and “Best Suburbs to Live” in Texas. At Huffines Kia Corinth, we are proud of our suburban community.
What’s your favorite reason to live in Corinth? At the top of our list is having access to all sorts of wonderful things to do with our families. Our team is always looking for ways to support local businesses. So, we’ve put together this list of six kid-friendly restaurants in the Corinth area for your family to try.

Our friends at Sidewalk Cafe have officially invited Balloons by Sam to visit on the first Sunday of the month, so that’s the perfect time to bring the little ones in for a nice meal. Make sure you come with an idea for a balloon animal or object for Sam to create. But you don’t have to wait for the first Sunday of the month: You can visit Sidewalk Cafe any time for an all-day breakfast or classic Southern-style comfort food dinner.
Breakfast options for kids include pancakes, like the Mouse in the House (made to look like a cute little mouse), French toast, or waffles. Or they can choose a platter, like an omelet, eggs in any style, or an egg sandwich. All platters include a choice of side, such as country-fried potatoes or hash browns, refried beans, and grits. Kids’ meal options for dinner include a quarter-pound hamburger or cheeseburger, chicken tenders, macaroni and cheese bowl, and other delicious cheesy items.
Find this homestyle neighborhood restaurant at 2900 Wind River Lane, Suite 130 in Denton, Texas. Sidewalk Cafe is open Monday to Saturday, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Check the website or call 940-591-1999 for more information.
Don Camillo Tuscan Grill
Don Camillo has been serving delicious, traditional Italian food in Texas for 20 years so far. Located at 1225 Turbeville Road in Hickory Creek, Texas, Don Camillo is a family-run restaurant with a pizza, pasta, seafood, meat, or specialty dish for everyone in the family. With its build-your-own pasta option, this is a great restaurant to help preteens and teenagers try more sophisticated dishes. Kiddos 12 and under will find simple pasta, pizza, and chicken tender options.
Pizza dough is freshly made in the Don Camillo kitchen (they have a gluten-free version available upon request), and the gourmet pies are baked in a wood-burning oven. Can’t beat that! Check out their site for the full menu and their Facebook page to learn about their limited-time specials.
Hat Creek Burger Company
Hat Creek Burger Company is a proud Texas chain that started in 2008 with one food truck in Austin. Now, it has more than 20 locations across Texas. This restaurant has an outdoor patio and a playground for your little ones. Burgers at Hat Creek are made to order using fresh ingredients, and there are options for those who have dietary restrictions.
The restaurant is open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day. Find Hat Creek Burger Company about 20 minutes away at 150 West South Highway 121 in Coppell, Texas.
Mrs. Lively’s Cajun Konnection
We think Corinth-area parents must enjoy having access to the cultural diversity surrounding the Dallas suburban areas. Mrs. Lively’s Cajun Konnection is a small restaurant that specializes in Cajun and Creole dishes, such as gumbo, crawfish etouffée, spicy catfish, and others. Children can enjoy a corn dog basket if you can’t get them to try one of the Cajun dishes. The prices are just right, and the atmosphere is relaxing. Reviewers on Google Maps say the hush puppies are “to die for!”
This restaurant recently moved from a Lake Dallas location to Corinth and now features a full bar.
Mrs. Lively’s Cajun Konnection is open Tuesday through Thursday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.; and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Find Mrs. Lively’s at 1400 North Corinth Street, Suite 111. They are accepting reservations at 940-279-4299.
Beatitudes Tea Room and Cafe

Beatitudes is located in Lake Dallas at 211 Main St. This interesting eatery hosts tea parties called “Afternoon Tea” and “High Tea.” You’re invited and can RSVP (make a reservation) by calling 972-987-9637! Check out the Beatitudes website, where you’ll find the full menu, including quiches and tea sandwiches, as well as other service offerings, including catering and private tea parties, even for kids! Beatitudes boast 31 loose tea leaf flavors. With the $24 per person High Tea option, you can sample more than one flavor of tea.
As we mentioned earlier, we like to think that parents in Corinth enjoy fully taking advantage of the diversity in our area to help kids learn about other cultures. It’s always a fun time when kids can experience and appreciate new flavors. Blue Ginger Japanese Bistro has four items on the kids’ menu: Chicken Nuggets (which we hear are made with panko) and hibachi chicken, shrimp, or steak. However, on the regular menu, older kids may enjoy the fried rice dishes, the bento boxes, and any of the tempura items.
Keep exposing them to new flavors, and little by little, your kids will become more open to trying new things! Find Blue Ginger at 2900 Wind River Lane, Suite 142 in Denton, and check out their full menu online.
Well, there you have it, Corinth. We hope you enjoyed our recommendations. Are there any favorites on your list that we should add to ours? Please let us know by contacting our general manager! He’ll make sure to get the message to us.
