Wonderful lunches – Le Fournil has the most wonderful lunch menu. We love stopping by on the weekends to pick up a sandwich, fruit tart and mocha to share. Highly recommended.
Favorite pastries in town – Cozy little french bakery... tasty croissants executed with deliberation, great tarts, nice sandwich lunch selection. Highly recommended when you're in the area.
Je Adore! – I adore Le Fournil. I would travel from anywhere in Seattle to get a sip of their hot creamy mocha, which goes down and finishes smooth. Uh oh, I feel a craving coming on. If that weren't enough they also have some of the most savory desserts and pasteries you could find anywhere. Gotta go now... I'll meet you there. ;)
Great French Bakery!!! – An easy-to-drive-by traditional French Bakery, Le Fournil has never disappointed when I am craving a sandwich, a coffee, a pastry, or all three. I am a trucker (original word starts with s and rhymes with trucker) for their tuna sandwich; I get this about 80% of the time. Served on a portion of their fresh baked baguette, any of their sandwiches make for one fine lunch. The soup is pretty good too, but again, the tuna rules. Their lunch special (available whenever) includes a pastry and a drink for about $8. Too many pastry choices to list (probably close to 20!). All delicious. My favorites include the mille fueille (?) and the choux. The coffee is good. I typically go for a latte and have yet to be disappointed. Beware: Long lines can form during breakfast and lunch. While the place is 'easy to drive by', once people find it (myself included), they quickly learn to make a stop. Don't let this discourage you though, the food is definitely worth the wait. The new-er decor is nice and there is generally some nice French music completing the Frenchy ambiance. Bottom line: Go. You will enjoy this place.
If You Love Me – If you love someone, bring them a special pastry from Le Fornil for ANY reason--promotion, pregnancy, birthday, breakup, or Wednesday. They are amazing. A birthday cake from this place would easily ease the burden of aging. And the beauty is the French never age and find health in enjoying the finer things in life. This place is authentic and so worth squeezing into one of their petite parking spaces.
How do I delete this review. – I take it back. I was in a bad mood when I wrote that mdgdr/nklbjkl;xsjkl;zsdfhjkl'g'djadgjko' 100charactersdfhsdgghg
best french pastries this side of the pond – i studied abroad in paris for a semester & became hooked on baguettes and croissants. after returning to the states, i found it impossible to eat baguettes from american bakeries.
this bakery, however, has the best baguettes i've had since i left paris. all of the baked goods are authentic and wonderfully french...right down the street from me!
It really is a special place! – After having read several reviews, I've been meaning to check out Le Fournil for months. Finally made it over there and WOW. The breakfast special is indeed a unique value, there are so many types of croissants! I had a great ham and cheese, boyfriend enjoyed apple... rasberry, chocolate, spinach are just some of the other choices we saw.
Very friendly staff, we have called since with special requests and they have been so accomodating!
Best way to start a week-end! – Since my husband and I have discovered Le Fournil we seldom miss a Saturday morning. The breakfast special (Double espresso and your choice of croissant) is the best deal around. (Lots of choices on the croissants - peach, almond, chocolate, ham and cheese, raspberry, spinach and feta, broccoli and cheese, plain, etc.) We always take a lunch special (Sandwich, pastry, beverage) to go for later. The chocolate eclairs filled with chocolate granche (sp) is unbelievably good! Free parking is the garage is icing on the croissant! We'll see you there next Saturday morning!
A traditional French patisserie offers croissants, tarts and gateaux. – In Short
Nicolas Pare has baked all over the world, but the French-born boulanger settled here. Fellow baker Kevin Thompson hand forms 6,000 croissants a week with sweet and savory fillings and there's never one to spare. Select from the sandwich menu, which includes classic pâté and camembert, or the quiche du jour. Other options include triple-decker Napoleons, miniature tarts, eclairs and whole cakes.
