I have eaten at La Belle Epogue in Media quite a few times for breakfast and light dinner, and each time without exception the food has been delicious. I pretty much stick to my two favorites: omelets for breakfast and their Black Angus Burger for dinner. If you are looking for a great hamburger- you won't be disappointed. The prices are very reasonable too.

Beef stew is wonderful. Very bistro like 40 wines by the glass but also cheap corkage fee. Nice find. Needs better wines glasses. Service very good.

Media has "Dining Under The Stars" from May to September, that is when we usually partake in the delightful menu offered at LaBelle Epoque Cafe. They have a wonderfully varied menu, I for one love the Escargot. Try someplace new and Try something new.

Downtown media has a few great spots to eat, this is one of them. The La savoyarde crepe is delicious . . . Gotten it repeatedly. Cozy atmosphere, great bartender ! The only negative is that the hostess is not very friendly and takes her time seating you.

Each year for our birthdays we choose a new restaurant we want to try. My choice is La Belle Epoque, a French restaurant in Media, PA. I have been there for lunch and was very interested in trying their dinner menu.
Do not be intimidated by this French restaurant, it’s relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff attacks families, couples, and businessmen alike.
We agreed to start the meal off with a Plateau de Fromages (cheese tray with homemade jam, cured sausage garnished with dried fruit and nuts) and escargot (yes, snails). Do not worry, you do not need to understand French, the menu has descriptions of the dishes in addition to the staff who can answer and make recommendations.
We chose the escargot because we have never had it before and thought this would be the time to try. They were served, out of the shell, in a garlic and parsley butter sauce. If you enjoy other shell fish, like clams or mussels, you will enjoy the snails, we did.
This restaurant is known for their crepes, and that is the direction both of our adult children chose; La Brie and La Canard. These wrap style sandwiches are made with their wheat crepes. La Brie with fresh basil, brie and bacon was a combination of creamy, tangy and salt. The La Canard was filled with duck confit, walnuts, pears, sage and fontina cheese; there is nothing left to say about this but yum.
My husband had the Boeuf Bourguignon, a rich beef stew served over mashed potatoes. This homey, heartwarming dish was so good; he did not want to share with anyone. I went with the Canard a la Framboise, duck cooked to perfection with crispy skin served with a raspberry sauce. The sauce did not over power the dish, but bolstered the duck with its hint of sweetness.
Ah dessert, one of our favorite things; we normally don’t order appetizers and dessert, but everything tasted so good, we just couldn’t pass this up. Tiramisu; yes, we know this is an Italian dessert, but it was good. Molten Chocolate Cake; at other restaurants this is usually bland; this cake was full of chocolate flavor and creamy richness. Crème Brulee; creamy topped with crunchy caramelized sugar, another success, and the Chocolate Mousse which was smooth and rich.
Next, I want to try their brunch.
