Thank you for the input! We had a great meal a few years ago at the pre-renovation version of the restaurant and are excited to try it now. It's great to know that it's child-friendly.

Thanks for the suggestions! I have made a reservation at Damas for the Sunday night in case we don't get a table at Pied de Cochon (waiting to hear back). I'd love to try Chasse et Peche or Filet, but I was also worried that they might be a bit too formal for the toddler, and also I ran out of nights... We'll definitely go to Patrice and may pick up a treat at Cocoa Locale when we're in that neighborhood.

Montreal dining for 2 year old's birthday

Hello, we're going to Montreal for 5 days (4 nights) in a couple weeks, and will be celebrating our almost-2 year old's birthday while we're there. He's well-behaved in restaurants and loves all food. We've been to Montreal once before in 2011 (we live in NYC) and loved all the places we ate (Garde Manger, L'Orignal, Pied de Cochon, Barocco). We're staying in Old Montreal but will travel for food.

I was thinking of these restaurants and was wondering whether you guys had any thoughts or other suggestions:

-Pied de Cochon
-L'Orignal (I hear it has just reopened after a remodel - any word on how the new menu is?)
-Liverpool House
-Au Cinquième Péché

Also, do you have any suggestions of a bakery or dessert place we can go to on our son's birthday for a tasty cupcake or piece of cake to celebrate?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Baby's first birthday party - best 4" or 5" cakes?

Thanks! That might be cute, actually... I think I need to get the tape measure out and see what that looks like! Are their cakes good?

Thank you! I will certainly consider it if the small cake idea doesn't work out, but I thought the mini-cake visual would be even cuter (and I'm planning on taking lots of messy-baby + cake photos!).

Baby's first birthday party - best 4" or 5" cakes?

I'd like to get a small 4" or 5" cake for my baby to eat with his hands (his first cake!) as well as a larger cake from the same bakery for the guests at his birthday party. Are there any bakery recommendations that do smaller cakes like that? All the bakeries I have been looking at (Tribeca Treats, Empire Cakes) have 6" cakes as their smallest size.

Thanks!
