Love this place! Best latte I have had and their chocolate croissants were fresh and light. Absolutely superb! One of my husbands and my favorite spots!
Delightful and charming! The pastries are fabulously French! Even though they were out of Hot Chocolate Sunday morning at 9 AM, hope they have it next time. But it is worth the trip!
We had a late weekend breakfast at Belle and it was delightful. Granted the menu is limited but what they do, they do very well. The ingredients are super fresh, portions just right and, as in France, you can sit at one of the (patio) tables without being hounded to leave (we stayed for almost 3 hrs!). And, of course,... More
This is a super casual little French cafe' on the 4th Ave. side of the Fairmont Olympic Hotel. We had a quick lunch here after checking into a hotel across the street (concierge recommended). The sandwiches were carefully made and good (although slow) but the thing I remember the most is the "sticky bun." It may not be particularly French,... More
We went to the Madison location, being nearby and wanting a nice lunch. We should have kept walking. The atmosphere and store next door were great, very light and clean, with Saturday wine tasting (only one type served though). However the choices for lunch were extremely limited. Either everything was sold or they just don't make much. The special of... More
Cute and cozy French cafe located in the Fairmount Olympic. My husband could not stop raving about the Baguette sandwich with Dry Salami and Olive salad. SO TASTY! Also, delicious was the ham and gruyere sandwich. Bread was fresh and crispy. A must try is the Lavender Macaron. It's quite sweet so make sure to get an expresso to offset... More
Yes, this is another cute Seattle dining spot, for very light lunches or pastries. However every lunch item I've ordered was sooooo salty. The house soup (mushroom), the quiche....they really make me gag. No amount of liquid can ease that saltiness. The pastries are quite good although a bit overpriced. Also they really need to update their reader board, sitting... More
Loved it. Brings back memories of Paris. So much better than Le Panier at Pike Place Market. Kinda out of the way.. a long drive on Madison from the Waterfront but well worth it. We just tried the macarons and the croissants are they were some of the best we ever had. Light, buttery, flakey.. so good. Didn't try the... More
When the old video store on the corner of Madison and Lake Washington Blvd. finally put up their 'going-out-of-business' sign I lamented the past. Now that Belle Epicurean is here, I'm embracing the future. This delightful patisserie isn't just a coffee shop, it's a little slice of Paris right here in Seattle's Madison Valley. Equal parts café and gourmet foods... More
Downtown Seattle offers a plethora of amazing coffee options but by far the best is Belle Epicurean. They offer Fonte coffee done old school way with long shots performed by hand. And the brioche is to die for giving this place the "Ceal of Approval"!
