Great bakery in Dockside Green. We rented a condo above col epi and walked down for breakfast. They make terrific french macaron with interesting flavours. I had a vanilla bean and green tea and a pan au chocolate. Popped over to the the attached cafe Caffee Fantastico for a drink to go with. The macarons a wonderful I get some... More

Excellent French style bread and pastries that are worth the trip to this hard to reach place with very little parking. Buy some extra bread and it will keep very well for up to a week. Another sign of the quality ingredients they use.

During our most recent visit to Victoria we stayed at the Delta and were intrigued by the reviews of Fol Epi, so we decided to check it out. The address was on Harbour Rd and the interactive map shows the location pretty much at the intersection of Esquimalt Rd and Harbour Rd. However, you have to walk down Harbour Rd... More

It was a pleasure to find this little bakery still here. Everything here speaks to my heart. Fresh, tasty and the best lattes.

Every town or city should have a go to place for dependable artisan breads. Fol Epi is ours!! Fantastic baking, good variety of pastries. OK prices if a bit high but you get what you pay for. BIG DOWNSIDE - Lousy parking. Just not enough so can put you off stopping in. Has neat coffee bar attached so great when... More

I ordered a cinnamon swirl for that little something with my coffee and grabbed two of the pork and apple sausage rolls for a light dinner with a salad. These where probably the best sausage rolls I have had... More

If you're short on time my title says it all. Pizza - made to order, and quite delicious, recommended. Pork Sausage Roll - Delicious, star of the show. Recommended. Pastries - disappointing apart from the Quince tart which I recommend. I must say the Chocolate eclair was spectacularly awful. Baguette - underwhelming, I heard so much about their baguettes ......

Organic Soft Serve Ice Cream there is so delicious. Only $5 for a gelato served with cone as well as berries, nuts, caramels, satisfied me so much. You could find a variety of pastries and bakery over there too, though I didn't get a chance to try yet.

I've been reluctant to review this place, but only because I don't want it to become more popular, purely for selfish reasons! Absolutely the best bread anywhere! The daily selection of sandwiches (fresh, but pre made) offers many great choices, the ham sandwich is probably my favourite anywhere! Pastries are to die for, and I always order a cake for... More

The bread was some of the best I have ever eaten.It was so good I rate this restaurant as very good even though I was not tempted to try anything else. Everything else was outrageously priced. The pastries did not look appetizing. The staff was not helpful. Very small selection.
