Disappointing breakfast. The hollandaise sauce was cold, the croque monsieur was tiny and the coffee very average. Would not go back.

I was hoping for the atmosphere to be a little more luxurious than the cafe feel we entered, however the food was delicious, especially the savory items. The staff were always happy and helpful when approached but we were not asked when we would like our tea or if we wanted more bubbles ( a surprise given they would benefit from further sales.) We appreciated the boxes to take home our left overs,needless to say the servings per person were very generous. I did enjoy the experience despite the comments above.

Fabulous experience! I took my fourteen-year-old granddaughter here for a late birthday present. There had been a slight hiccough with the booking but they didn't miss a beat and catered for our dietary requirements without any problem. The service was friendly, without being too familiar; nothing was too much trouble.
And the food...! Excellent quality, heaps of it - although each portion was dainty and, therefore, easy to eat. I was able to introduce my granddaughter to Earl Grey tea with lemon. She loved it. She has a sophisticated palate already, and her favourite morsel was a beetroot cracker with hummous and toasted chickpeas. Wonderful!

We really enjoyed our High Tea at Belle Epoque on a Tuesday afternoon. We had personalised service, being the only High Tea booking. There were other cafe customers. The pastry chef visited us to personally explain the assortment of fine treats. The food was delicious, with a selection of unusual and very tasty items. The bottomless tea and coffee was appreciated by all. The only minor disappointment is the location on street level. The Emporium is such an impressive hotel that a level with a view would have made our day.

Very basic breakfast, lacking a few elements and no table service. I ordered a fresh juice which came out 'freshly' bottled, and the scrambled eggs were served on top of one small piece of bread with hard butter to the side.

Decor is nice, staff were friendly. Drinks took a while to come out. Food was delicious but quite small (serving size) for the price.

Really loved the ambience. Just found the hot water for our tea was not hot enough and our eggs and toast were not hot.
