5 A's

5 A's is a Greek/Mediterranean restaurant on 53 in Harvest. It used to be the (J)iffy Mart gas station and convienence store, but got a total revamp a year or two ago. It's also really good. Beardy, Smalls, and I have been there several times; Grandma, Smalls, and I went recently for lunch; and we've gotten take-away there once for dinner. I've never been disappointed. 
5A's is on 53 in Harvest, north of Publix.
I've gotten the traditional gyro (meat cone!), and the chicken gyro, and both are so good. The tzatziki sauce is wonderful. They do have a kids' menu, and the standout is the hot dog. Really. They slash it and grill it, and it is really better than you think it's going to be (comes out really hot, though). We've also gotten Smalls the veggie pizza, and it was too big for her to finish alone, but she loved it. Yes, Beardy and I sampled it, too. I think the crust is the same pita bread they make the gyros on (that's a good thing). 
Smalls thinks the dolmades look like... um... poop. But that's a 3-year-old's opinion. They taste fine. Let's move on. 
The hot dog is better than you think it's going to be.
Overall, this is a great toddler-friendly place. The owner is always so nice to Smalls, and the atmosphere is very casual.

Bathroom report: Clean. 2 stalls. No changing table. Bonus: you get to walk through a beaded curtain to get there.

Toddler friendliness ratings
Atmosphere: 4 out of 5 booster seats.
Food: 3 out of 5 booster seats. Healthy side choices would be better than fries only. Veggie sticks, pita wedges, and hummus?
