Quietly slurping away on these one Saturday morning were the very young sons of Dave and Mellonie Rollo, who live in Edgewood and, as Dave put it, “are not Chuck E. Cheese people.”

“We come here all the time,” he said, just before his very tall, very dark beer arrived. “The food is great.”
As an afterthought, he pointed to the tin box at his 5-year-old’s elbow. “And they do have crayons.”
Ration and Dram also has a kids menu, but one gets the sense that the Rationers only created it so they could give dishes cheeky names like the Skull & Crossbones. (It’s eggs, bacon and cheddar on toast.)
Like their parents, kids can imbibe “by the glass” or “by the bottle.” The choices include freshly blended fruit-and-veggie juice and lemonade, straight or flavored.

The kids yogurt parfait features strawberries, honey and candied pecans. The Skull & Crossbones has house made bacon! And only younguns are offered French toast, though the tidy little triangles are minimally sweetened and so deliciously custardy that the adults are bound to steal some bites.
