The American Girl Cafe in Los Angeles

The American Girl Cafe in Los Angeles

We recently had the pleasure of the lunch experience at The Cafe at American Girl. Our American Girls, and their American Girl dolls, loved it!

American Girl has definitely perfected dining catered to kids with their cafe in Los Angeles. They supply high chairs and tea cups for all dolls, which my girls thought was pretty much the most fun ever. On every table is a box of fun conversation starters to spark a discussion that you might now otherwise think of. And at every turn they are bringing out a new little starter plate to nibble on, or a bubbly drink to enjoy out of a fancy glass!

The multi-course meal started the moment we sat down with miniature cinnamon buns for everyone. Shortly after that, our festive drinks arrived, followed by a crudités and cheese platter. Not long after than our entrée selections were delivered. The Cafe has a lovely selection for both kids and adults.

The highlight for my girls was dessert, not surprisingly. But this dessert was extra special because it was delivered with a happy birthday song to each of their dolls!  Our dolls have many (many!) birthdays every year, but our waiter graciously humored the girls when they announced that it was all three of their dolls birthdays, yet again.  He arrived singing with cupcakes, candles and happy birthday stickers!

While the food and service was wonderful, the highlight for me was the atmosphere American Girl cultivates. From the conversation starters on each table, to the focus on building an experience that young girls won’t soon forget, American Girl aims for a unique dining experience for girls and their families, just as described below in the story on the back of their menu.

After lunch, it was a treat to tour the store with our own personal shopper. She gave us history of American Girl and how their stores and dolls have evolved over the years.

Mollie is a wife to a wonderful man and stay at home Mama to two beautiful and energetic little girls. She has lived in South Orange County for most of her life and enjoys crafting, running, clean and natural living, party planning, and being involved in her community and church. She believes that being a Mom was and is her highest calling and attempts to give her girls a wide array of different experiences. From soccer cleats to tutus, running races to finding the perfect hair bow, she wants them to grow up knowing that they can be both girly and strong.

We attended as guests of American Girl.
