We have been to Plettenberg Bay numerous times and never been to this little bakery but on our last visit we went there on our last morning and bought the croissants and a tuille and also a country loaf to take home. They are one of the best bakeries I have been to maybe a little overpriced but will definitely visit again

A pot of tea 22 rands therefore we were charged 44 rands in total for the to of us!!! Plus an almond croissant which was 25 rands but absolutely gorgeous. At the end of the day though it is a blooming croissant for goodness sakes. The tea is made with proper loose tea leaves not tea bags and the pots were quirky. Not sure why it is so overpriced but the owners should visit other successful cafés where the food and beverage are realistically and reasonably priced. Otherwise it's a good location with wifi availability. The service staff were friendly and welcoming. There was a good selection of bread but we didn't bother buying one after our expensive afternoon tea!

We have returned to Le Fournil, after seeing a good review in a Cape Town newspaper. Excellent service, excellent food - altogether a very pleasant experience. We will return when we next visit Plettenberg Bay!
