Mezza enjoys neighborhood status in Atlantic Beach. The popular Town Center it’s housed in is home to a growing number of tasty foodie destinations. Mezza is more well known as an upscale dining destination, however the locals are in on one of the best kept secrets in town. For a more affordable night out that is also kid friendly, reserve a seat in the lounge area or patio and bring the kids to the pizza bar. There they will enjoy working with the pizza chef to create their own wood fired masterpiece. Mom and Dad can order a pizza too and you’ll get away with dining out for a song. Of all the pizza I’ve enjoyed in our city, Mezza’s is my favorite.

It’s very difficult for my wife and I to eat out with the kids. We still want fresh, quality food, but in a kid-friendly atmosphere where we’re not going to feel guilty for bringing in three small, mostly well behaved kids. We all have our moments!
- Noise level. We need a casual restaurant that carries a good energy just in case our kids are extra energetic.
- Kid–friendly options. My wife and I are lucky that our kids will eat foods that aren’t just on the kid’s menu, but we still need options that will keep them happy. All of my kids eat a salad every night and they love fresh vegetables — so a restaurant that only offers pizza, fries, or chicken nuggets for its young guests isn’t going to be our first pick.
- Wait time. If a restaurant doesn’t take reservations, then we need to know that the wait times won’t be too long. Kids and waiting just don’t go together well, and a lengthy wait could ruin our chance of eating out altogether.
- Proximity to distractions. I think, “ok, what’s our exit strategy if Roan (our youngest child) starts to lose it?” We like casual places like Flying Iguana, because the beach is right outside if Roan needs to burn some crazy off.
