When in Plettenberg Bay ..... Le Fournil

During our stay in Oubos (read here), the three of us went on a day trip to Plettenberg Bay. The small coastal town’s list of attractions are endless, and if you think that’s an exaggeration, here are the things I can think of just off the top of my head: separate sanctuaries for elephants, snakes, monkeys and wolves, and the world’s largest single span aviary at Birds of Eden. Incredible cycling on the forestry roads at Harkerville and hiking in the Robberg Nature Reserve. There are cheese farms, food and craft markets and gorgeous décor/home ware shops. Now, with all of that on offer, where did you think we ended up going? For reasons I struggle just a bit to comprehend now, we ended up going for a spectacular breakfast and then an even more spectacular lunch, with a bit of emergency grocery shopping in between!

In the shady and charming courtyard of the Lookout Centre in Main Street, is the delightful Le Fournil de Plett, a French inspired bakery and café. They offer a wide variety of pastries, deserts, croissants and other scrumptious meals, but they are most famous for their slow-risen artisan breads. These are all baked daily using organic stone-ground flower. Looking around me, it became very clear that all the regulars were back for the croissant aux amandes. So, if you are in Plett next time, don’t miss out of the flaky almond croissants under the tree canopy of Le Fournil de Plett.
