Lunch could be at Nijaguna Chamrajanagar. That is the only family friendly place that I know of in that area. You might also want to go to Somnathpura if you havent visited the same and then drive back via Bannur - Malavalli - Kanakpura.

Please be aware that Kanakapura road is under construction. 4laning project is going on. Expect deep excavations and better to avoid driving at night. There will be long traffic snarls on weekends at junctions and construction sites. If you can, please go through Mysore road.

With road widening work ongoing on Kanakpura road, it is now difficult to select between Mysore road and Kanakpura road for Shivanasamudra.

However, personally I would still favor Kanakapura road with early morning start to avoid crowd. As Romins mentioned above, if driving after sunset be careful about road work.

I will be riding to Melukote this weekend. Do you know the condition of Mysore road until Mandya? I have seen the road-widening work happening 6 months back.

Do check this thread & post (Driving between Bangalore and Mysore) for more details. If you are driving from North/West Bangalore, you can try this route (Driving between Bangalore and Mysore) to drive through some super country roads which should be nice & green right now.

I would suggest avoiding the Mysore road route.
Instead take Nelamangala-Kunigal and then turn off to left towards Nagamangala. From Nagamangala take the road that goes right and reaches Melukote (this is better since the nagamangala-pandavapura stretch has some widening work in small stretches).

*Another alternative is Magadi-Huliyurdurga-Nagamangala-Melukote.

I had gone to Melukote last weekend via Nelamangala-Bellur Cross- Nagamangala route. This route is nice, except that there is some road widening work in between. Watch out for speed breakers and the construction debris. Otherwise, the traffic is less and it took a little more 3hrs to cover 180km from Bangalore to Melukote.
