Sit outside and enjoy the beautiful view! Enjoyed the best bran muffin in South Africa. Coffee is served with wonderful biscotti of which we had to buy a bag (chocolate pecan) to takeaway!

Well worth the visit!

Setting, food, service all 5 star! Thoroughly enjoyed this Knysna gem! Can highly recommend a little lunchtime excursion here and one absolutely has to have the battered hake. Delicious!

I was going to rate this a 4 then reflected it was one of the best brunches I have ever had, so it is a '5'. Great service, great food, I recommend the Calamari and fish combo. Sitting outside you overlook the very entrance to Knysna lagoon, and it is as picturesque as any place I have ever been. A must-do, my only word of caution is that the wind in Knysna can be strong, so if the weather is blowing I would take a look around and then sit inside!

Note that they only do Breakfast/Brunch/Lunch, no evening meals here -

We stopped in for lunch after a hike in the area. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. The burgers were amazing with good wine to boot. Desserts are massive and great if you have a sugar tooth. Definitely worth a visit.
