We were staying at a hotel down the street and came here for breakfast two mornings. We had the egg and sausage sandwich which came on a croissant bun. It was simply delicious. The egg was actually one that looked like it had just been poached. The bun was really croissant pastry shaped into a muffin-type bun. We also had the ham and cheese croissant, the walla walla onion tart, and the rhubarb brioche. All of the food was excellent and far above the ordinary. We also had coffee and cappuccino and found it particularly good as well. The Starbucks across the street had a line and we could not figure out why everyone was not at Belle Epicurean instead!

Stumbled upon this cafe. The croissants at $4 a piece were expensive and just bad - greasy and slightly salty. Never again...

I have to visit Belle Epicurean each time I travel to Seattle. Breakfast or lunch, it's always delicious! The egg and sausage on brioche in the morning is to die for. The flavored macaroons and coffee are a treat as well. So wonderful.

I have been to Belle Epicurean a few times in the past month after staying away for a few years due to a few bad experiences. The staff is all new and seem better trained and more focused on customer services. We got our orders in a reasonable amount of time and staff were nice (both were problems in the past). Their food has always been excellent so I am glad that the service issues were corrected. This is some of the best French cafe food in Seattle.

This small cafe is within the Fairmont Olympic Hotel but apparently not run by it. The coffee is excellent. The orange juice fine and the food satisfactory with the usual limited choice for a small coffee shop. Certainly cheaper than the hotel breakfast and it suited us.
