When Don and Arlene Coulon opened the Belgian Lion Restaurant so many years ago, it shaped the food culture in San Diego and made a mark in Ocean Beach.  Don and Arlene’s love of good quality food, coupled with a unique restaurant experience, left a deep impression on many, including their three granddaughters.  Chef Anne-Marie, and her sisters Jacqueline and Dominique, hope to rekindle that love in their new cafe.  The Little Lion will not be the same as the Belgian Lion, but the sentiment will be:  Food is love, love is family.

Welcome to Little Lion!

Anne-Marie, Jacqueline, and Dominique Coulon
