>American Girl Factory, going for lunch at the Bistro, certainly an experience.
Cute as the place was, lending you a doll with a high chair if you don’t have your own, it’s still an over priced treat.
$16.50 for a fixed starter and main course plus drinks and $7.50 for a kids menu, which is a main meal and ice cream.
The food is good, but the descriptions were a little deceptive. Fondue of strong cheddar cheese with crusty farm style bread turned out to be what appeared to be melted Velveeta cheese and soft chunks of normal bread.
It was good but not quite as expected, but better than the veggie skewers, which consisted of a piece of pepper, a tomato and cucumber.
Main meal, the macaroni and cheese had the same cheese as fondue, the side of fruit was a couple pieces of melon. This contrasted with the kids version which did have a good portion of fruit and vegetables on the side.
The salmon meal was fantastic on the other hand, good portion of salmon, nice side of steamed broccoli and carrots with a good serving of mashed potatoes.
Another odd thing about the place, no booster seats, only high chairs.
Certainly a fun afternoon treat with the little one, but some how I think it would be better for icecream and coffee kind of break.
