It was a very disappointing experience we arranged for friends to meet for breakfast at 10:30 in the morning..... Drinks arrived in time but eventually we had to get a muffin to share after an almost hour wait for the food.

When the food arrived it was good.. Except the muffin was terrible and the egg and salmon wrap had cold egg in it they offered to redo the wrap but i was too hungry to redoit. We were only too pleased to eat and get out....

In there defense some people at the table had had good experiences in the past so maybe it was just a bad morning in the kitchen... We saw at least three other tables who also complained...

Popped into dunkeld fournos today to pick up a few treats, bit into my brandy ball only to discover an unidentifiable rubbery mass which turned out to be a disgusting piece of chewed gum.

I don't like to sit there in particular but I tell you what, this is the place for ready roasted chicken, fresh rolls and other deli stuff as they have a great selection, great to shop for entertaining...fantastic cakes and biscuits.

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!
