I’ve been nearby Rozy Square 3x in the past 10 tens and had lunch here. My favorites are the grilled chicken, and tuna salad sandwiches. Both clear winners! Served of course, on sourdough bread. Usually it’s been pleasant person at the front counter taking our...More

This place is living on its reputation. We visited on a Sunday afternoon and the place was dirty. The trash containers were overflowing, the chicken soup was greasy and the bread was at best ordinary. There are great bakeries around Boston such as Clearflour and...More

Fornax is justly known, locally, for its great choices of fresh breads -- and the sandwiches on which you can sample these breads are great. The pastry selection is considerable and delicious.

They have this half sourdough bread that is just fabulous. Many sourdoughs can be too sour and somewhat off putting. Not these guys, the crust is very crusty and the inside very soft and moist. The taste has that slight sourness to it that doesn't...More

We were ravenous and in search of a quick lunch--Fornax fit the bill. Although they don't have a lot of seating, we were able to find a table when we showed up around 2pm. For those with a smaller appetite, a half-sandwich is possible. My...More

I almost feel like I'm going to an art gallery when I visit Fornax. They treat bread like the special baking craft that it is. Enjoy a sandwich or a slice in the funky restaurant and bring some home for later. I hope I haven't...More

I think there were a total of 8 customers and three staff still couldn't handle the pressure. Ham and cheese baguette had ham but no cheese. Macchiato took ten minutes to make. Ultimate insult was the butter cream frosted chocolate mini cupcake we bought to...More

Tiny Roslindale Village is in transition. Some business concerns are old-timey, some are what you expect with gentrification. Fornax Bakery is in the latter category. Excellent bread and baked goods, decent coffee and some delicious breakfast plates. Now you're paying for the good bread. A...More
