every now and again we treat ourselves to a meal at Fournos - and a little visit to their bakery! Their food is always fresh and delicious, a great varied menu and excellent service. and their bakery goods are to die for.
we visited the other day and found they'd installed a deli/sandwich bar which was excellent - not something you find much in SA - where you choose your bread, your fillings etc. The result was fantastic. And we had the most amazing apple pie as well. And they had a special on a roast chicken with rolls and a bottle of coke - so that was dinner sorted. and their roast chickens are the best.
we don't go very often, and it is a treat because it's pretty expensive. worth it, but not something we could do every day!
also, there's no kids play stuff or anything like that - at none of the branches I've been to actually. it's more a business/adult environment.

Friends and I stayed around the corner from this bakery and came here every day for breakfast. Full menu all day, proper coffee and teas. Everything we ate - from ravioli to lentil salad to baked goods to bagels is out of this world!

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!!!

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.
