Reviewed November 1, 2012

I can never walk into Fournos without buying half the shop! Everything looks scrumptious and tastes even better. You can never go wrong with this place!!!

“Good breakfast, slow service”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Fournos is always a good idea for breakfast, although you have to be patient. The one in Fourways Crossing is always very busy, and it's difficult to secure a table outside. The service is very slow and does detract a little from the experience.

The Fournos in Rosebank is not as great. We had very slow service as well as not fantastic food.

The Fournos in Woodmead, however, is the best one in my opinion. The service is a lot faster, the food is tasty and quicky, and the bakery offers fantastic freshly baked goods.
