The bakery turns out fresh pastries daily & there is a huge variety of them too. This is a great place for a quick lunch or breakfast. I'm just not to keen on facing a parking lot when eating. Other than that, it's excellent

Went for coffee and lunch, and everything was delicious. Waitstaff was friendly and helpful, and there was a great selection of fresh baked treats for dessert.

Great service,excellent value for money and always bustling,,,be advised that you may have to take whatever table you get, as this place heaves with customers. If you dont mind the glare from vehicle windscreens the outside seating is trendier. The bread products are all baked on site so freshness guaranteed

Great place to stop for a quick sarmie, quiche, salad and a freshly pressed juice. They have banting bread options for the Noakes followers. Best thing was there red velvet cream cheese, cupcakes- deee-licious because its not too sweet. Only thing i could critique was the irritable lady making the custom sarmies behind the counter. Rest of the service was... More

The manageress handled the situation extremely well and did not charge for the meal and drinks. This is excellent public relations. I had the malay duck stirfried and my son had... More

We keep on going back for more of the famous Fournos breakfast, bakery goodies and coffee. The staff are great and the management is brilliant - everyone seems to work well as part of a very efficient team. The Rosebank Fournos just isn't the same - it's a completely different vibe.

Their menu is varied and offers anything from great cooked breakfasts, salads, sandwiches and more substantial dishes. Their breads, croissants and cakes are superb as you would expect from a well known... More

Friday 12.30ish. Got a table easily. Sat outside where we had a great view of the parking lot 😣 and caught a pleasant breeze on a very hot day. I had - could it have been - a 'dirty'? prawn and egg salad. The prawns looked like little pink grubs but they tasted ok. I think I'm going to stop... More
