Nice setting and great coffee. Epi D'or is a great place to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee and a croissant. However, much of the food is seriously overpriced. Their sandwiches are basically two slices of white bread and some random vegetables not necessarily in line with what was stated in the menu. Their main courses are nothing worth paying extra for - however the setting may be every now and then. Their brunch is OK but again, a white slice of toast bread, some eggs, a glass of juice and a croissant is something one easily could prepare with a bit more flavour at home.

I visited this restaurant twice within three days - first for dinner and then for breakfast. Both times were enormously disappointing.
The bakery produces excellent patisseries and the croissants are very good. However, the restaurant is hopeless. A nice setting and plenty of well-dressed staff in customised uniforms, but very poor service. Both times I had to wait at least three quarters of an hour for an order.
Breakfast was the worst, with my main order, a simple cheese omelette taking nearly an hour to arrive, well after the pain au chocolate had arrived. Cutlery had to be asked for, as did butter.
The food was mediocre and the omelette was bland.
The staff appeared almost completely untrained.
Better management and investment in staff needed.
This could be a marvellous place.

I like coming to Epi d'Or on Sunday mornings to relax with a friend or a book and have an excellent decaf cappuccino and something to eat. My only complaint is that you can't order off the regular menu until 11AM, but I guess that just forces us to have an even more relaxed Sunday morning...

I gone to this restaurant for a business dinner in DEC 2013 and I can say that every thing was totally average
food taste was normal but not very special ,environment was good ,a little smell from kitchen that was not likely and price was higher than same level restaurants (about 12-15 USD per person for food and soft drink)

This cafe has a good location and atmosphere. However being a lebanese restaurant you would expect better arabic food as well as the availability of shesha.
