“Great value and great produce”
Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

Often visited here instead of Greggs for lunch, the food is fresh and much tastier than high street alternatives. There's usually an offer on something sweet, and the staff are friendly and helpful. Love their Cornish pasties!

“Good place to buy bread and stuff”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

I think it's good, but I mean, bread is good in many places. Maybe the point to go there is that you can be sure it is freshly made, and also, everyday after 4, they will sell bread half price, so many people will queue up then. I love bread and I do think it's good. It's just I don't know why the big fuss.

“The best artisan bakers in Newcastle”
Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

I've never been disappointed with anything I've bought from the French Oven. They have a great range and bring out speciality products at Christmas and Easter. The prices are very reasonable. You just have look at the queues to see how popular it is. Well worth a visit.
