Serendipity 3

Kids of all ages are sure to love this whimsical eatery as much as tourists do. The signature Frrrozen Hot Chocolate is decadent enough for any sweet tooth, but the massive menu spans omelets, sandwiches, pastas and sundaes. Even if one kid’s in the mood for eggs and another one wants a burger, there’s something to please everyone. A note: tables at Serendipity can be tough to come by, and they are often booked months in advance, especially around major holidays. If you’re walking in, prepare for a wait of up to an hour.
