Buzzy venue

Buzzy location near Surfer's Corner. Largish venue, and always busy, so it can get noisy. Sitting on the enclosed front porch provides views of the comings and goings of surfers, children and families - nice to stroll off a meal afterwards on the beach. Service is friendly and efficient, food is... read more

Bakery theme restaurant. Which is a nice thought but this version is very sanitised. Trendy light food and steaks in well, breadboards of course! Ok, but not sure I would rush back.

Situated opposite the famous surf beach of Muizenberg, Knead is part of a South African chain specializing in high quality home baked goods & tasty, nicely presented home made food. Everything is of the highest quality; beautifully presented; tasty & fresh as well as being well priced. However the service is very slow despite there being plenty of staff on... More

Cannot believe how pathetic the service is here even with loads of servers and a handful of customers. No help and no interest. Left after wasting almost 15 min of my time. You give Cape Town a bad name.

You cannot beat this place for location. As others have said we could not find a way into the place. Silly.Service was good but there were only half a dozen customers. The food was ok but had been cooked in advanced and warmed. Would have been a thousand times better if cooked to order like some other places. Would still... More

I came on a holiday and the place was very busy. Luckily, I came alone and found a table immediately unlike the big groups who had to wait in qeueu. I didn't experience a slow service though.. My hot chocolate came quickly, then my brekkie. It had 2 slices of wheat toast (there's an option to choose the type of... More

Had lunch here after a long day. Instantly got a table, even though it was very busy. Service was good, but waiter did not write down the order and brought the wrong food. He seemed to be very busy. But the food was good! Makes for a good lunch after a long day on the beach. Good menu with nice... More

I visited Knead on a windy Muizenburg day and after getting a table for 7 we struggled to get any attention. The manager lady seemed to be in her own world and I and was "serviced " by at least 3 waiters. I hate not being able to get the bill and our original waier was nowhere to be found.... More

take a trip to Muizenberg and have a nice lunch at Knead. My step father is into the latest banting trend so he was very pleased to find a place that offered banting friendly meals. The pizzas are a bit different but really nice, I had a regular pizza base and have nothing bad to say about it. It was... More

After surfing you must go to knead for breakfast. Great croissants and the toasties are a must. The bacon and egg with mayo and lo car bread was spot on. What was even better was that the kids had a indoor play area and kept themselves busy after lashings of hot chocolate. Perfect
