The waiter was clearly untrained and unenthusiastic, My husband's business breakfast was ice cold and took very long to arrive, I ordered the protein bread with anchovy - very badly presented. When we called the manager to complain about the breakfast, she was un-interested and lethargic(to put it politely). All in all a completely unpleasant experience.

Stopped over for a quick lunch with the family. The eggs benedict with bacon was quite good. Eggs perfectly poached. Fresh bruschetta sandwiches were very good. The chicken burger wasnt bad either. This Fournos is quite a bit smaller than other branches so there werent as many baked goods as one would expect. Sandwich bar was not evident. Not bad... More

A great place for breakfast or to pick up something nice for home. Their baked goods can sell out, so get in early.

I like this bakery, except for one thing and that's the car park setting. I know it's in a shopping mall but the outside seating area is not very comfortable for this reason. Regardless, I do go when shopping but would choose other places if I wanted a relaxing breakfast/brunch. The breakfasts are nicely prepared and the menu quite varied.... More

Food is good. But the waiters are not fully trained, the table was not cleared of used cups and glasses.

The service from Luckson, my waitron, was 200%. However I have some niggles - perhaps this bakery is not for me. All juices are pre-mixed and there was NO fresh ginger!! I settled for second best - a smoothie. The pre-cut pineapple wasn't properly prepared so it looked a little off-putting. I ordered 2 almond croissants to take away but... More

My husband and I enjoy going here for breakfast. We enjoy the breakfasts we have had there and the service is good too. The selection of breads are also very tempting.

This place offers great coffee and a lovely breakfast. Try the savoury wrap, a delicious option We chose to sit outside, a good option before it gets too busy

Always go buy pastries here. Good choice. Freshly baked. Have also had a light meal and it was well presented and fresh.
