For families with kids who exclusively order mac n’ cheese when they dine out, finding restaurants that offer more than just a jazzed up version of the stuff from the blue and yellow box (we won’t name names!), can be a challenge. Give one of these Seattle or Eastside restaurants a try the next time your little ones have a hankering for some mac… many of them offer pretty tasty adult-friendly versions as well!

Beecher’s Handmade Cheese

This wouldn’t be a complete Seattle mac n’ cheese list without mention of the city’s most loved spot for all things cheese — Beecher’s! If you’re downtown at Pike’s Place, stop by their flagship store to pick up some fresh, piping hot mac n’ cheese to-go. Not only is this mac n’ cheese tasty and the whole family will enjoy it, but they make it with penne, which is easy for little fingers to grab! Beecher’s “World’s Best” Mac &amp; Cheese is also served up at a variety of kid-friendly restaurants around town, including one of University Village’s newest dining spots, <a target="_blank" href="http://www.liamsbistro.com&quot; target="_blank">Liam’s</a>.
