A life saver, with healthy wholesome food (great place for brunch). What’s better, you can buy snacks (such as samosas, cakes & ice-cream too). Being in Benmore center shopping mall, parking etc., is taken care off.

It's a ritual to go to any Fournos branch when visiting Joburg. We love their sweet treats and pastries. We had breakfast at this branch and everything was exceptional from the food to the service.

Thank you for the great review. The secret to our delicious pastries and sweet treats is that we use fresh and premium products in all our products. If you love nuts, I can recommend our delicious nut squares.

My friend and I love coming to Fournos. It is always abuzz and the vibe is friendly. Over our past few visits, we opted for the buffet that is priced by weight. The food is absolutely delicious.

This Fournos is soo busy at Breakfast and Bruch that you don't have to ask if the food and the service are great. You just know. You can design your own smoothie too.
