Casual dining in Lyon with a 4 year old: Any advice ChefJune and others?

mlee17 | Mar 21, 201512:38 PM

I have read a bunch of the posts on Lyon and was hoping for some critique on our itinerary. My husband and I will be travelling with a 4 year old so are looking for some tasty, not too formal dining options. I have some bouchons picked out though I suspect we may need something to break up the heavy eating at some points so would appreciate those recommendations as well. I've been reading about Ouest Express, for example, and think this might be a good option for it's casual atmosphere. We are staying on Place Bellecour so also looking for things that are not too far walking distance from there.

Also, I've looked mostly into food options so far (as the case may be!) Any other not to be missed experiences/sights in Lyon?

Here's the itinerary so far:

Day 1
Dinner @ Café Des Federations
Ok to bring a child here?

Day 2
Les Halles de Lyon Paul Bocuse
Mere Richard
Any other shops we shouldn't miss?
Lunch at AOC Les Halles Market - ok to bring a child here?

Bernachon Chocolatier

Need a dinner option - maybe Café Comptoir Abel though I suspect we may need a break from heavy Lyonnaise food....any suggestions?

Day 3

Cafe Mokxa
Any other closer coffee shops to Place Bellecour?

L'épiaison or Pignol Patisserie
Pick up sandwich for lunch

Dinner @ Daniel et Denise
Ok to bring a child here?

Day 4
Croix-Rousse Market

Boulangerie du Palais
Sandwich for lunch or maybe grab something at the market

Dinner @ Sud Bocuse

Thank you!
