“A Wonderful Brand”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

Fournos ( Dunkeld ) - had a hot meal - excellent and tasty - in my opinion good value for money. Just the seating arrangements and shop layout can get very congested - which can be overwhelming. The food and freshly baked rolls - yummy!!!

“Fourways Crossing is the best”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

All the staff at this establishment are friendly and helpful, including Nick, Anil, Prosper, Jabu, Last, Sophie, Sekai and Happy to name a few. Sit down orders arrive promptly and look and taste amazing. Portions are large and fresh. Anything and everything is worthwhile from breakfasts, to salads to the oven baked pizza (with a thin crust). Lunch can be ordered by weight from a buffet style set up if you do not use the menu.
The bakery especially the ciabatta breads are the best in Jhb. As are the roast chickens.
A great place to visit for early morning coffee.

“Chocolate Croissants”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

the best Chocolate croissants around, you have to buy at least 6 just to eat yourself. Try and go there early in the morning so you get them hot off the press...

“Great food, good ambiance”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

This restaurant serves great food for sit down or food on the go patrons. There is wide variety of ready to eat items, prepacked or that can be weighed. They serve one of the nicest and thickest fries or wedges. If you are watching your waistline you have plenty to choose from. You have a choice of sitting inside or outside. I love the fcat that I can eat, buy stuff for the family, and even buy cakes. It is the go to place for all your confectionery needs. The fact that it is at a centre where there is a range of essential shops makes it the perfect place to go to anytime during the day. Here is a secret, each time I went there on a Saturday or Sunday for a sit down meal, when they are about to close, patrons get some free stuff. Who does not like good free stuff?

“Fournos Bakery Dunkeld”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Have been coming here for years on the occasional drive past to buy bread; have lunch or deli items. Pleasant place to have breakfast or collect deli items. Bread is pleasant but the recipe has changed over the years, specifically the ciabatta. Popular by the locals and business folk.
