After exploring around we located Belle Epicurean through the hotel (although there is a street entrance). The firs thing that I noticed is that everything is made on site, no central baking... read more

Great place, yummy food. Stopped by for espresso and ended up buying wine and champagne. They even had some really great frozen entrees you can buy and heat up at home.

We visited this coffee shop early in the morning before a tour. It was a great cup of coffee and the breakfast sandwich was fresh and full of flavor. Loved the feel of this little establishment.

They carries fresh delightful pastries, but their service tends to be slow. Not all staff are as friendly as I hoped.

The cappuccino served in white porcelain cups is to die for! The quiche is mouth watering delish! They have the same chairs and tables as Parisian cafes. So today I went to Paris by way of my Seattle vacation. We sat in a table by the window and people watched while sipping cappuccino. How Parisian. Just a few feet from... More

We could eat here every morning, and usually do whenever we visit Seattle. The ham and cheese croissant is always good. Then, the rasberry or apricot compliments it! Savory and sweet! Perfect way to start the day. Love this place!

Had a coffee and a pastry before heading out for the day. The small sticky bun was very good, small place and limited seating

Attached to Fairmont. Great place to grab a quick French pastry, coffee or Diet Coke. There are seats but to go is easy.
