At Crayola Experience, we know that interacting with all 20 of our playful attractions can work up a serious appetite! That’s why we offer food options at Crayola Experience and have a go-to list of kid-friendly restaurants in the Minneapolis/Saint Paul area for dinner. Between our in-house goodies and the bustling Twin Cities region, we know you’ll find the perfect restaurant for you and your family.

Café Crayola

Hearing belly-growls mid-day? Café Crayola is the perfect place to stop and grab some lunch between attractions. Café Crayola offers tasty meals to satisfy any appetite - from tiny tots to full families. And in case you have any dietary restrictions, Café Crayola also offers gluten-free and vegetarian options as well! So take a break from all the running around and fill your bellies with a meal that will keep you going for hours.

In case you were worried that the creative fun would be interrupted, we’re happy to tell you that it won’t be! Café Crayola is located inside Crayola Experience.  

Snack Shack

In case you want to save your appetite for dinner, Crayola Experience’s Snack Shack is the perfect place to grab a quick, mid-day snack. Here we offer easy, on-the-go goodies and drinks that you can take with you to your next attraction! And as an extra bonus, all Annual Passholders are eligible for a 20% discount on all food and beverages at Crayola Experience - so you can save while you snack!

Benihana

Benihana is located in the Mall Of America and is only a 4-minute walk away from Crayola Experience. We love recommending Hibachi to our guests because it’s the perfect place for large groups and it’s fully equipped with a fun atmosphere, live entertainment, and delicious food! And as an added perk, Benihana also offers discounted kid’s meals for kids 12 years old and younger. So you can keep the party going with a steaming onion volcano and shrimp tossing games without breaking the bank.
