Incredible is an understatement. Their food is outstanding. Expect slow service but it is very well worth the wait. The almond croissant is a MUST!!

A delightful atmosphere and wonderful, earthy decor. Delicious artisan breads and very useful free wi-fi. Yes, the service was a bit slow, but we did not mind as we were using the wi-fi, and so enjoying the ambience that we were happy to stay a bit longer. Is it open on Sundays? will tell you tomorrow!

Lovely French atmosphere and different menu. Good selection of breakfast and lunch items. My wife had a vol-au-vent and raved about it. Gave me a taste and I agreed. I had a prego steak roll. Lovely flavours but the sirloin steak was quite sinewy. Disappointing.

Delicious breakfast! Great biscuits too! Nice coffee. We sat on the deck over looking the street. Inside they had a fire going, was really cosy. Baked goods looked amazing. Popular place, was busy for a Monday morning.

Cafe in a small courtyard just off the main road plus tables inside where it's snug near the fireplace. We enjoyed the beef and the smoked trout open sandwiches, but the portions are small and prices above average.

Good venue with a nice view, and with the in house bakery, our expectations were perhaps a bit high, as we thought that we would get a special treat. We were disappointed when the food arrived after a long wait, it was cold and tasteless. The items are also more pricey, portions small, and service too slow.

Every one was talking about le fournil so we thought court yard coffee and croissant would be such a treat, well sadly the coffee wasn't all that good a bit burned, and paying R10 extra for an egg, well I don't think it's worth that much... And the decor not really French, could do with a touch up but it... More

Just a great little spot to get away from it all for a good coffee and/or breakfast. Free wifi & great coffee (and fresh bread) in a beautiful coastal town - what more do you want?!
