Frequently voted Best Bakery in Johannesburg, the Fournos bakery brand has been so successful it now has a dozen branches across Gauteng. Come here to stock up on the most delicious baked goods, sweet treats and deli products like cold meats and cheeses or grab a table and stay for coffee and lunch.
Fournos offers Italian, French, Portuguese, health, kitke, wholewheat, rye, focaccia and sandwich bread, all baked fresh on-site everyday. Try one of Fournos light, flaky, melt-in-your mouth croissants, which come in flavours such as almond and custard, chocolate pie and cinnamon raisin or how about a carrot and apple, strawberry or cappuccino muffin?
Other sweet treats include custard or raisin danishes, lekker South African scones (with cheddar and biltong shavings!) and chocolate cigars and the most decadent cakes such as chocolate ganache, serrano, black forest and tiramisu. Fournos also stocks a variety of specialist biscuits including Greek designs (think chocolate-dipped honey biscuits!)
For those with a more savoury palate try one of the famous Fournos quiches, the most popular of which are the bacon and mushroom, spinach and feta, chicken and mushroom and salmon and leek quiches. At some branches you may also find gourmet quiches with fillings like asparagus and goat’s cheese or Mediterranean grilled vegetable coming out of the ovens. And of course not to be forgotten are the famous Fournos pies, loved alike by adults and kids of all ages.
All the bakery and deli items can be bought to take away and enjoy at home or as part of a picnic, while you can also opt to sit in and have a meal. The cafe menu has a wide range of stuffed pancakes, sandwiches, salads, pastas, soups and wraps and an excellent choice of breakfasts. Fournos also creates amazing platters if you really want to wow your guests at your next function.
