If you’re rolling with a few children who just burned 800 calories playing tag and throwing pebbles around, you need the closest place where you can toss french fries in their general direction, guzzle down beer, and eat a burger that most definitely will not have pink in the middle but will taste good anyway. The patio at Magnuson Cafe is huge and looks out onto the water - which is something the kids won’t care about between bites of grilled cheese, but your adult friends would probably find cool.
