The bakery part of the cafe is the sparkling jewel in this eatery. There are two main cases, displaying cakes, cookies, breads, tarts. All beautifully prepared with heavenly flavors.
I remember talking to Kahn when La Madeliene moved into the RO Shopping Center. I asked him how he felt about that. As best as I can recall his answer went something like this. "Great," he replied, "it will add to the foot traffic and bring new people into the area." I liked his answer. It seemed wise and forward thinking at the time and I think it showed confidence in his restaurant and his open minded community spirit.
This morning I had breakfast at Epicure. The Florentine Croissant, scrabbled eggs with ham and spinach.
The man sitting at the table next to me asked me "What is that? It looks really good. Do you want to trade?" His breakfast looked very tasty, but I opted to stay with my choice. It was good. Too much really for one person, but I put a pretty big dent in it.
