Portland is pretty kid friendly as cities go, but not every place in Portland is kid friendly. In many places you get a sneer when you bring the little ones. So I was happy when reading, um, Urban Mamas, and heard about Sip N Kranz. It's a nice coffee shop with its own baked goods, as well as some from Saint Cupcake and Black Sheep Bakery (which are vegan and hence, not for me.) They have a giant kid's play area, easily the biggest I have seen in Portland. But the most important thing is that is on Jamison Square, with the great fountain. It's a win-win, the kids get to play and the parents can get some food and drink, soon to be real drink as Sip N Kranz is getting a liquor license. They were very friendly and I thought the scone was very good. The crowd is a bit odd with parents and young kids as well as Pearl District yupsters. Still, a very good place.
