Most delicious chocolate croissants and other tasty baked goodies. The food offered at the bakery is also very good. Pleasant staff and management.

“Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

I usually come into fournos bakery on my way to the office early in the morning before 07h30. At that time of the morning they are usually busy preparing for the day however most of the stuff I like eating for breakfast is usually ready. I love the fact that they are open when most restaurants are not. The fact that be more shopping centre has a 1 hour free parking must an advantage for fournos as my shopping for breakfast is a 15minute experience

“Warm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

The place is buzzing, busy, you get your food, your drinks, you can take items home for the family. Staff friendly, prices ok, just a bit too buzzing and busy for relaxing.
