Cozy and interesting. Le Fournil is quite pricey, however we thoroughly enjoyed our breakfasts which were promptly served and in generous portions. The croissants were exquisite, although I was a little disappointed that there was no soy or almond milk for the coffee.

I was not moved by the quality of the coffee or pastries at this french bakery, we where really looking forward to some great coffee and breakfast but they fell short compared to what we have on offer at home.

Beautiful little restaurant with an al fresco area under a large tree with little shops on three sides. Feels like a breakfast or coffee stop for locals and tourists. Very good service and breakfasts. Well known for their pastries and homemade breads.

This is a great coffee shop with wonderful baked goods. The olive bread sticks are positively addictive! The restaurant itself is good too but not somewhere I'm ever particularly keen on staying for longer than to pick up a coffee.
