Lovely spot for morning tea or to gather with friends in a French style setting. Deserts were delicious. Recommend a visit.
We celebrated my sister’s birthday with High Tea and it was superb! The food was beautifully presented and so delicious! A great variety of teas to choose from and champagne for those of us needing a fix of bubbly. The staff were friendly and courteous and efficient!
We couldn’t get in for the high tea but were really happy with the fondue instead, delicious!
Was an amazing experience thanku, will definitely be back
The menu is limited and with the soup there was no butter for the bread roll you had run out!🤣 who runs out of butter in a restaurant...... there is a small goods shop across the road , get a credit card and go and get some ... it’s really quite simple !!!!
Small cafe. Great barista with ordinary beans. Pretty looking dessert but tastes just sugar. Good manager with bad staff. Decorations and furnitures are alright. Savoury on high tea was good.
We have been to Belle Epoch twice before this recent visit and each time the ambiance, food and service were perfect, Thankyou for the attention to detail to make it lovely every time Jenny
We had an absolutely delightful morning celebrating my Mum's birthday with high tea. Or booking had complications however the young male manager along with his staff were absolutely fabulous ensuring that nothing was a trouble. He problem solved, made us feel important and as though nothing was a problem. The food was delicious and the ambience perfect. I would certainly recommend this establishment and I look forward to returning soon.
Have been there many times and the quality of food and service is always good. Great food and location .
The table service was excellent across the two hours I was there with three family members. All of the food was good but I personally would have preferred less scones and a larger range of other sweets.
The staff made it a very pleasant occasion for my Mum, sister and niece.
Great food and atmosphere. Service by the staff was very friendly. Will definitely come back
So lovely to dine somewhere that offers a high tea mid week. The staff were very attentive to our dietary needs. The venue is lovely and beautifully cool on a hot summer day.
The food looked beautiful and was delicious. There just was not much there for the money. The hot drinks sadly were not very hot. Despite these issues I find that Belle Epoque is a lovely venue to enjoy High Tea with a friend.
Our high tea at Belle Époque was great - a really nice selection of sandwiches and cakes and the staff were very helpful.
Celebrated my sister's birthday with a high tea and we had the best time. Food was delicious and service was also really good.
Beautifully styled premises. High Tea was wonderful and the staff were very attentive.
We enjoyed a baby shower high tea at Belle Epoque recently & the food was delicious (the sweets were outstanding). One of our party is vegan & her high tea was equally as delicious. The service was excellent & the surroundings are beautiful. I would highly recommend a high tea for any occasion.
Incredible food and a lovely venue and staff. Only concern was the wait time, we pre-booked a high tea however we waited 1hr for food. Otherwise a perfect morning tea!
Wonderful and relaxing 2 hours, enjoying the generous and very tasty high tea. Fantastic ambience, hIghly recommended.
Whilst the sweet treats on the pricey high tea were delightful, the savoury were less desirable- pastries served stone cold, bread for sandwiches could have been more fresh. If I were to return, I would not order the high tea but rather select something from the cabinet or menu. Too expensive for overall experience IMO.
Lovely high tea a great girls day out. Would highly recommend
We waiting 1 hour for food, they asked us if we wanted anything else a couple times and said the kitchen wasn’t answering. Multiple people arrived after us and got their food long before us while we still waited, the people beside us had two lots of different food while we still waited for our one. If it wasn’t for this it would of been fine. The food wasn’t worth the wait, there was nothing exciting about it.
This was our first time at high tea and I would say our last. Staff were pleasant but when you say all the tea and coffee you can drink, you should have enough staff to be able to provide this. Even filling up your water glass we had to ask several times. We had the vegetarian high tea and the only two foods that had flavour were the scones with the beautiful jam and the chocolate hazelnut roulade. The ribbons sandwich was ok but the other two sandwich’s were awful hence why they only had a bite out of them. Anyhow the search for Brisbane’s best high tea continues.
Great selection of food for the high tea and excellent service!
Food, service and atmosphere was outstanding. We felt like we were well looked after with water glasses regularly filled. Food very delicious and reasonably priced.
Great location close to train and bus stop as well as good parking near by.
Sad to say we were very disappointed in food. Everything had an overwhelming herbal flavour which was unpleasant and lingered throughout the day. There was also a tart with cherries soaked in rum included on the service. It was not at all palatable but more to the point alcohol soaked fruit was not appropriate for non drinkers.
It was certainly worth trying
Delightful ambience, attentive and friendly wait staff, now a firm favourite for business meetings.
Quality of service and food was excellent. would come again and try pastries not offered with High Tea. Disappointed about not having it in the piano bar as that was the impression received from the website
This is a delightful casual eatery. It has an elegant, stylish atmosphere and the food we ate was delicious. Also ordered a reasonably priced cocktail which was perfect.
We would have liked the high tea but felt it was overpriced at $120 for two
Lovely day felt by all. Food was good as was the service.
A very nice place to visit. Great ambience, very helpful staff, nice food offering.
Good presentation . I will definitely recommend Belle Epoque in the future.
Belle Epoque has great potential but struggles to deliver. Waitresses very sweet but difficult to understand and vice versa. Service was very slow and the cafe wasn't busy. Drinks order was delivered to the wrong table but we weren't charged for the coffees and milkshake which were delivered to us in error, which were similar but not the same as original order, The toasted sandwiches were the highlight, melt in your mouth, delicious. Chips also fantastic, freshly cut. Dessert was a bit hard to get through, very glad we ordered ice cream to go with the peach sponge, which looked sensational but a bit too much sponge. Coffee was also excellent. Would I recommend Belle Epoque to a friend - there isn't the option for "Not Sure", so will say "yes' because of the toasted sandwiches, chips and coffee. The service is the biggest problem, although the staff do try hard.
Perfect for mother daughter day this review minimum is annoying though
Lovely experience with yummy good and wonderful service.
Excellent service, delicious food and unlimited beverage.
Everything was perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and service.
The service was professional, kind an attentive. :)
A delicious breakfast in a gorgeous little French cafe in South Brisbane! Loved the food, decor and ambience. Will definitely bring friends and family here! Looking forward to trying the high tea and the beautiful cakes.
Expected a better range. Did not see any Viennese pastries, which is why I went there.
The staff were so lovely! They had a full cafe and still managed to check in multiple times to see if we were ok and to top up our teas and coffees. The food in the high tea was delicious
