We quite like Le Forunil for breakfast/brunch, with courtyard atmosphere or overlooking Main Street. Food is quite good but not brilliant. I don't think I would order their coffee again, it's really strong and bitter. Service is very variable - from very bad to acceptable

Very nice setting on the quad under the shade. In season it's a scrum to find a spot, even for couples. The food is great and service excellent. We normally hit it for the breakfast, which is superb, but be patient to be seated in peak season. Like a little world away from the Plett Main Street to catch a... More

You can't go wrong here - the food is great, the service is friendly and the setting is lovely. And all of this at really reasonable prices. Try the sandwiches!

The venue is great. lovely spot to enjoy outdoors in a courtyard with a shady tree, a relaxing time with friends. Food - it all depends what you order. Breakfast - Croissants and pain au raison are great. Eggs are good. At lunch time, - the burgers give indigestion, and the roll that the burger is server on is dry... More

My wife and I have visited this place twice when coming to Plett and has become a Must visit for us. Really good coffee and yummy treats (almond croissant is a must have). Breads are fresh and gives a sense of straight out of Europe. The restaurant is off the main street and can be a little hidden, but don't... More

What a beautiful restaurant. Extremely busy, but make you feel important. Wonderful management and staff. Often popped in for take-away croissants or breakfast. Best croissants (especially the almond croissants) I have ever tasted! Went out to buy them even when I was not popping in for breakfast. Great managers who ensure that the customer queue for breakfast was managed with... More

Very popular spot in Plett. Restuart was busy and had to wait for 10min for a table but the host was very helpful and had our names down for tables. Had omelets for breakfast. Was a little pricy but very nice. Great coffee and other homemade confectionary. Worth a try but stay away if you have a sweet tooth and... More
