Granted I was there on a cold and dreary day -- the coffee was fine, but the server couldn't figure out my change and almost over-charged me.

Their Chocolate Croissants are my favourite and their Croc monsier is delicious. Lovely settings in the courtyard, the balcony inside and the best coffee in Plett.

Very simple pastry shop, but really loved every single element in it. Staff is very welcoming and the overall atmosphere is really wonderful. I tried only dessert and coffee and were more than enough to let me fall in love with the place. Carrot cake and cheesecake 💜💜💜

We had a late breakfast at this cafe and enjoyed the beautiful croissants made the traditional way. Good efficient service and comfortably styled inside and outside seating.

I went there in December 2015 and forgot to review it... so I tracked the restaurant down and here I am. This is how good this place is... i had to give it a great review! So i walked up to this place... saw their array of cakes and might have died a little. The macadamia nut caramel cheesecake took... More

We visit Plett twice a year and our first port of call for coffee and almond croissant is always le Fournil. We have been doing this for too many years to count and we have never been disappointed. The decaf cappuccino is made just how we like it, hot and smooth without a bitter after taste. The almond croissants are... More

Not a good place to have coffee when there is a power outage. Lady made coffee in a bodum which looked more like weak tea. Sent it back and not much improvement with the second attempt. Sadly left without having had the coffee and was still asked to pay for it.

We love this little bakery,hidden up a sidewalk....and return year after year. Never disappointed...full breakfast served on a hot plate,fresh juices and to end with tea ..hot lemon and ginger water with the best almond croissant in town.☕️😄 Service was wonderful and attentive,however must admit it was very quiet...so one would not expect less.(very unusual to see it sooo empty)

Mondays are a bit of a culinary conundrum as many restaurants in Plett are shut. We initially drove out to Enrico's for some Italian food; they were shut but the walk around the cliffs and along the beautiful stretch of beach there was stunning and well worth the drive. Ravenous we headed back to town and fortunately stumbled upon the... More

Absolutely no management and oversight. Seated ourself after being ignored for 10 minutes. Another 5 minutes to get a menu and had to ask to have the debris from previous diners cleared.Service non existent and breakfast and coffee a huge disappointment. Sure the almond croissants are great if they have any left but they don't make up for shoddy service... More
