Went here for dessert (milk shakes) with family. The shakes were good, service was just ok. Our server acted irritated because we weren't ordering anything else.

My girlfriend had never been here. We split our meals with me getting a standard chicken sandwich and she got the mac and cheese (she always wins!). We got there just as it opened so we sat at the bar. It was fun to open the pack of crayons and just draw. I can't remember the last time I got... More

Crayola Cafe had a fun and colorful atmosphere that intrigued our grandchildren. The wait staff was friendly. The food was tasty, well-prepared, and reasonably priced.

Typical American food, the waiter was very entertaining to the kids at our table. The kids really thought he was funny and they have colors and a activity paper on the table for them to use. The food and service were good, we would be repeat customers. We went there for the kids to enjoy and they did. Portions were... More

Our hotel, Westin Crown Center, is connected to the shopping of the Crown Center so we stumbled upon the Crayola Cafe. It's basically a cute shop to get souvenirs…things were too overpriced. I got a Crayola KC T-shirt for $20.

We were the only customers at dinner time and we only went for the experience for our 8 yr old as it was a lot of fun when we took our older son many years ago. It was not the same experience. It was the same as any other restaurant. Our son really enjoyed his chicken tenders, but the menu... More

This place could have a lot of potential to be a neat little spot for families and a cool experience for kids. Yes, there is paper and crayons to color on, but that is no different than most restaurants. The food was sub par -- at best. The staff was not very friendly and seemed confused about who was covering... More

Good spot for lunch at Crown Center. Crayons for everyone at the table to color. Food was very average and service was good.
