Our story

The French Oven Bakery and Café was opened by local Scripps Ranch residents, Yves Fournier, and his wife, Susie.

Chef Yves grew up in France, in a small village at the base of the French Alps called Veyrier du Lac. Baking has always been a Fournier family tradition, and today, He represents the 5th generation of bakers in his family. An old family bakery sign from 1840 hangs on the wall of The French Oven.

Our recent visit to the French Oven was an overall good experience. We ordered sandwiches to start. My ham, cheese, and egg croissant was light, buttery, and made just right. My friend ordered a salad for the main course. It was also fresh and scrumptious. The pastries were my favorite part. Among them were cookies with a bit of jam in the middle, an apricot pastry and a lemon tart. The fruit flavors were tart and sweet, as they should be. There is nowhere to sit down at the moment, but there is a spacious park just across the street where you can sit down and enjoy the meal. If you’re in the area, try one these sweet treats. Eat up!!

Amazing little bakery, great food, and great people! I order a ton of stuff from them for work and my customers love it! Perfect little egg bites and mixed pastries for morning meetings. Feels good supporting their business. They'll have my support for as long as they're around.

For Valentines Day we ordered their dinner of beef wellington,  roasted vegetables and a chocolate raspberry dessert.  Everything was incredible.  This made a special day for us.  Thank you so much for a wonderful day.

This place is partly responsible for me gaining my Covid 19 Pounds...but worth every bite!!! The almond croissants are melt in your mouth delicious and the lattes delivered with a Mercí Madame from the French owner are special!!! I feel everyone in Scripps Ranch knows we are blessed with our little corner of French Heaven! Other Goodies: Soups, Tabouli, curry chicken salad, Homemade vanilla for cooking!!!
