Description: Graze by the River is a coffee bar and bistro situated in one of the original 1820 settler's home next to the banks of the Kowie River in Port Alfred. The venue boasts a private garden area at the back of the property where you can escape from the busy Van der Riet street at the front of the property and enjoy freshly roasted coffee or sample some of the many homemade dishes on offer. The menu is based on locally available produce from fresh seafood, smoked meats and organic vegetables grown in the garden on site, interesting tasty dishes are supplemented by daily specials. The restaurant has its own smoker for preparing a lot of the dishes and the coffee bar roasts its own green beans daily ensuring good quality fresh coffee. So whether your looking for a great breakfast, some coffee and cake or a tasty homemade meal come and enjoy the experience of Graze by the River. Evening meals are strictly by reservation and we are closed on Wednesday.

Rustic style restaurant. Breakfast was delicious. Its nice to know that the owner is present, accommodating and friendly. The garden is homely and beautiful. All the food is organic either grown by the owners or bought from local suppliers. Worth the extra bit of money to support local businesses.

We had been meaning to try it for a while; as we live about 40 km away from Port Alfred we had high expectations when we made the trip to Graze by the River. Happy to say it completely surpassed my expectations and then some!

Service was quick, efficient & friendly. Cappuccino's were perfectly made! We had the Guinness Pie & the Seafood Curry; both were simply excellent! By far the best pie we've ever tried! The seafood curry was balanced & flavorful. Lastly we decided to break our diets and share a piece of White Chocolate & Raspberry Baked Cheesecake, I wish I hadn't because now I'm obsessed! Simply amazing!

All of the above in a very laid-back, friendly atmosphere with cool trinkets to buy in the front!

This place is a real gem, we can't wait to go back!

Great breakfast today, good service and wide menu selection. Food was served quickly and warm despite the cool wind blowing outside.

Great location and worth a stop
