Fol Epi is a bakery that makes the best breads and pastries that you can find anywhere.
They also happen to make some wonderful cakes, cookies and sandwiches from their little location on Harbour Rd. by Dockside Green. And they also happen to be in the same building as Caffe Fantastico who know how to make a perfect cup of coffee (whatever kind you like). A perfect marriage.
Enjoy!

I'd been hearing about Fol Epi forever and finally decided to check it out. The first thing I have to say ask...why did I wait so long? Honestly. The pastries remind me of Europe. The bread is an actual experience. Pizza made to order at lunch. The best in the city. You can buy most of the breads in a half loaf. Who does that? For the singles out there or those who don't eat a lot of bread this place is for you.
I met a friend for lunch. I had the pizza with caramelized onions and chevre. Simple is the best concept and they nail it here. The baker delivered the pizza to our table on a kraft paper bag. We watched him make it and put it in a brick oven. Minutes later...lunch.
The dough was cooked through. The onions tender and sweet. The chevre a perfect contrast. The portion left me satiated. Quiche. Sandwiches. Pain de chocolat. Croissant. Boule. Baguette. Every choice is the right choice.
A little research when I returned home. Cliff is the owner/baker. He has silos behind his space. Grinds his own wheat. He is an artisan. He works hard. He is brilliant. Local art on the walls. Coffee from Cafe Fantastico is next door. May be hard to find the first time. as there is not a lot of signage. After that, not a problem. And you will return.
