Their bread in particular their chiabattas are excellent whilst their pastries and chocolate croissants are incredible. It is a real treat walking around the store choosing what to buy from their freshly baked selection.

We often grab pastries from Fournos at Fourways Crossing for a weekend breakfast, but this was the first time we actually decided to sit down and enjoy our pastries at the restaurant. The establishment was not as busy as over the weekends. We easily found a table and sat down as there was no one at the entrance to escort... More

Fournos has a great menu and great food. Situated in a shopping centre with many options, Fournos is well placed.

On both occasions, I had lunch and it was really enjoyable. The first time I was served by a courteous and efficient waiter, "Acutte" and a smiling and friendly waitress, "Abigail" on my second visit. Both staff were unobtrusive and I did not feel rushed to eat during the frenetic busy lunch time. This, coupled with an attentive floor manager,... More

You can't help taking a brown paper bag full of lovely treats home when you visit here. Lovely bakery, lovely breakfast spot- always busy. Comes highly recommended.

Some very good dishes put out for lunch, though the only problem might be trying not to overheap your plate from the salad bar (this gets expensive quite quickly). The service is a bit slow if you don't time it right - especially around lunch time. But the good food makes up for that lack.

One of the best place to have a meeting over a coffee or a early breakfast or light lunch. Staff is always very cheerful and nice. Food is always good quality, fresh and value for money. Bakery section is awesome and love their cake and bread selection and fresh baked stuff always worth buying.

Have been there many times and enjoy their food. We usually go there for breakfast or a light lunch. Food always fresh, good menu selection. Their bakery is also very good. We usually buy bread and cake to take home, especially the ciabatta. Their lovely chocolate croissants are also a hit.
