about California Pizza Kitchen:
Children are handed boxes of crayons and menus with puzzles and games on them as they walk in the door, and it is an easy, comfortable place for a fairly quick, fairly inexpensive, and pretty good meal.
You'll find a wide variety of pizzas and pastas, some under the influence of other ethnic cuisine: Hawaiian pizza, Southwestern Chicken pizza, Thai chicken pizza, etc., and it's the same with the pastas. The traditional Italian choices are available as well, of course.
Dessert recommendations include a key lime pie of which the restaurant is justifiably quite proud.
The children's meal (for kids 10 and under) includes a choice of pizzas, pastas, and salads; plus a drink, and a hot-fudge sundae or a brownie with whipped cream on top. Children under 10 can also sign up for the CPKids Club and receive a free meal during their birthday month.
The service is fast, friendly, and accommodating; booths are available at most locations, and plenty of boosters and high chairs stand at the ready. And the bathrooms are clean.
California Pizza Kitchen also offers a service called party packaging, where it will help you plan a menu, and figure out the right amount of food to order; then prepare it and package it with utensils and napkins. The restaurants do not deliver. Call the manager at your location to ask for details.
