Description: Bonjour! Welcome to our quaint bakery and café! If we were to describe our business, the words that come to mind would be: friendly, fresh, family & of course – FRENCH. Founded in the small town of Plettenberg Bay, our business has now been going strong for over 10 years, built solely on the principles of artisanal bread, aromatic coffee and delicious homemade food. We, Florence Chabanel & Jane Hops, strive to bring you traditional French cuisine & pastries in the holiday heart of South Africa!

This cafe is hidden away in a courtyard off main street and we found it by accident. We only used it as a cafe but most people were eating lunch meals during our visits and the food looked very good. We restricted ourselves to coffee and almond croissants which were to die for.

Best place for breakfast in Plett! Their almond croissants are legendary! Can't go to Plett without making a stop in there.

We found this delightful spot when first visiting South Africa in 2010 and now seek it out every visit. Very comfortable squishy cushions and sofas under a shady willow tree in this pretty courtyard off Main Street - free wifi, if required. This time had delicious almond and chocolate croissants with excellent coffee. Can think of nowhere quite so good even in the South of France. The second-hand bookshop and up-market dress shops add to the appeal.

We had coffee and croissants here several times as well as ordering bread and cakes to take away. By far the best bakery in Plett - I'm glad I don't live there as the temptation to go there every day would be very great! It was extremely busy as it was high season so necessary to order croissants and cakes etc. in advance to avoid disappointment. Very efficient staff, with the owners very much in evidence keeping everything under control. We did not have a meal there but we will definitely do so if/when we go back to Plett..
