If you have an airplane lover in your house, you have to check out Hanger Cafe in Chandler, at the Chandler Municipal Airport. This hidden gem located in the hangers at the airport is a great spot for plane watching.
Hanger Cafe in Chandler
There is a very laid back and casual feel to this place, so I think it is great for kids. We had one who did not want to sit still, only wanted to talk about and look at planes, and everyone else on the patio was fine with him running around every time he saw a plane!
