We're going to the Crayola Factory this Friday, and I'm trying to figure out what to do for lunch. Does anyone know if we can bring our lunch or if there's any decent places to eat in the area? As long as its not a burger joint I"m ok (prefer to avoid pizza too). They've got a list of restaurants in their website but its hard to tell what's decent when there's no links.<br><br>
Thanks!

Hello, there is a Wegman's at Rt. 33 & Rt. 248 (about 15 mins. from downtown Easton). It would be much nicer eating there than packing (use to be able to eat at Crayola-don't know if you still can or it it is only for groups).<br>
The other places near by are not real kid friendly.

we've eaten at the pearly baker's before, i think my kids had a hummus plate with pita and veggies, i had a veggie burger and salad and i can't remember what my husband had, but it was pretty good, not too expensive, and accommodating of my boisterous family. good luck and have fun.

we live nearby and i've brought my kids to pearly bakers for lunch in the past. at night, no - definitely a bar, but the lunch crowd is ok.<br><br>
the perkins on their list is closed.<br><br>
if it's not freezing out - you MUST MUST MUST go to the purple cow - it's in the alley behind the crayola factory and the BEST BEST BEST ice cream.<br><br>
i personally think all of the italian/pizza places downtown are gross, but i'm from ny originally and really picky about my pizza.<br><br>
sette luna is nearby and good, but expensive - as is ocean - but definitely an adults' restaurant. if your kids are fantastically behaved at such places, go for it, but if they're rammy, it won't be appreciated.<br><br>
porter's pub is a shorter drive - they're on 7th and northampton - good sandwiches and ok for kids at lunchtime - i wouldn't walk from the crayola facotry - the blocks in between are way sketchy.

My vote is skip lunch and go to the Purple Cow LOL<br><br>
We've also eaten at Pearly Baker's, but that was years ago and not with little ones.

Ouch, break my heart - the Purple Cow sounds lovely but I can't do dairy. I think I like going to Wegman's best - we love the local one and I know its a very kid-friendly place.<br>
Thanks for all the suggestions!

Sorry about the dairy. You just can't go wrong with Wegman's, and it is easy to find.
