We had lunch here yesterday. The staff was welcoming and the cafe reminds me of many French cafes I have visited in France, except the tables are spaced with more room around them. They have a lovely wine list, I had a glass of their french Chardonnay, which was delicious. My friend has the Eggs Benedict, which they loved especially... More

On the whole it was an OK experience. It's not the place I'm going to be rushing back to have more but if someone asked for Crepes around here, I'd tell them to give it a try. The food was good although not excellent. The atmosphere was not really a french cafe although they were trying. The tables could use... More

This place is perfect for a date night! We were just walking down state street looking for somewhere to eat and it was sthe first place we checked and they had no wait. The service was great surprisingly BC the bartender who was also our waiter had his hands full. There was a good selection on the menu. I had... More

Nive wine selection - the flights are great and give you a chance to sample several wines. The food is very good, too. Seating in the bar is very limited and the restuarant is small, so get there very early or make a reservation.

I have been here a few times for brunch and the service has been slow and the food OK, but this last visit will be my last - both were terrible! We arrived for dinner, requested to sit outside and was told no, put at a high top bar table where I think the bartender was our waiter. In addition... More

On State street in Media, La Belle Epoque is one of many tempting restaurants to a visitor. We went on a Friday night when the restaurant wasn't crowded so no reservations were required. There was however a steady flow of customers in and out of the restaurant. I ordered the crispy duck and my husband ordered the pork dish with... More

If you like crepes and wine, this is the place for you. The seafood crepe was wondrrful and so was the flight of wine. Our waiter was very knowledgable and had great recommendations. This is a great place for a date or with a group of friends.
