L'Epi D'Or_1

This French-owned bakery-cafe seems lost in the unlikeliest location, churning out croissants and cinnamon-cloaked cakes amid sober rows of laundromats, camera shops and mamak hangouts in Kelana Jaya’s Zenith Corporate Park.

Pastries made with French Butter

French butter makes these treats a little more luxurious, but cost-conscious customers will be pleased that prices here remain pegged to the ringgit, not the euro.

Pate brisee (RM1.70 each), rich shortcrust pastry that’s simultaneously crunchy and crumbly.L'Epi D'Or_3

Peach danish (RM4.40), totally peachy, theoretically available 9am-8pm daily.L'Epi D'Or_4

Should the weather prove kind, take a table on the sidewalk (L’EpiD’Or has no indoor seating) and savor a serving of the Galette Frangipane (RM5.20). L'Epi D'Or_5

Cakes and Confectionery

Memories of madeleines eaten in bygone times in faraway lands (RM4 for four at L’EpiD’Or) ensure we never miss out on purchasing them whenever possible.L'Epi D'Or_6

Boxes of traditional tidbits flown in from France are a highlight: Bite on Brittany’s crispy-savory creperolles, filled with Comte cheese and flavored with walnuts …L'Epi D'Or_7

… or attack the almond-paste calissons, Provence-made candy confections similar to marzipan. L'Epi D'Or_8

Coffee

The chink in L’EpiD’Or’s armor: its coffee, tea and hot chocolate, fully forgettable.L'Epi D'Or_9
