We took our out of town friends here for a Saturday morning coffee date. The baking didn't disappoint. We had the apple strudel, the lemon tart, the fruit danish. I would highly recommend fol epi on Harbour Road, it is just off the Galloping Goose, easy to bike to!

Great baked good. Amazing service. Forget the coffee shop attached. Not worth the bother. Well worth the stop for the bread.

Great energy, good service and fantastic coffee. Was perfect for a business meeting to discuss some IT needs for our organization- good table set up and fairly private.

I did not list nice sandwiches and my favorite hot dogs. Tiny (one table, two chairs) space for eating inside, plenty of benches outside. A. C. Patella

I go to this bakery everytime i'm in Victoria. Clean with nice ambience. The coffee is smooth. They have quite a variety of pastries too. Get the pear danish, it's to die for.

Fol Epi never disappoints. It is our go-to place after riding the Lockside Trail into Victoria. We almost always have a coffee from Fantasico and a sandwich from Fol Epi, the fresh tuna is our favourite on a freshly baked baguette.

The most amazing breads and pastries, the bread is chewy, rustic, and wholesome - it's what I would class a superior artisanal experience. My favourites include the boule and french loaves, the apple pie, and their pizzas!
