“Best brunch in Knysna”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

We stayed on Leisure Island and twice took a stroll to the other side of this little stretch of paradise to visit the Island Cafe. Expect warm hospitality, a charming antique/ gift shop and delicious selection of local preserves. We had one of our best brunches here (we are brunch people!) - fresh, quality ingredients and good home cooking served with a genuine smile. It's a great spot for afternoon tea too and there's a highly recommended Sunday roast lunch that we didn't get around to trying for ourselves.

Leisure Island Coffee Shop has great atmosphere, wonderful people and fresh cuisine! I thoroughly enjoyed my breakfasts there. In addition to a historic location and quaint products, the Coffee Shop delivers delightful food served by a delightful waitstaff.

“A Great Friendly Cafe”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

The Coffee shop is a very friendly gathering place for locals and tourists. It offers a good range of breakfasts, lunches, and cakes at very reasonable prices.
The food is good quality and the staff very friendly
You can eat inside or outside, weather permitting.
You will see many of the residents of the island or neighbouring areas most days as the café is used by most as a great place to meet friends for a drink or meal.
It operates a superb quality and value Sunday lunch
At peak times - particularly Sunday lunch it will be very busy so make a reservation or get there a bit earlier
