This venue has now become the standing joke in Muizenberg for a take away. A stroll through the Muizenberg village down to the beach to check the surf and grab a coffee is a way of life for most locals. Knead has a been around for enough time now to get it right and they still amaze us with their... More

Knead, Muizenberg, is a great early morning stop over on your way to wherever. The bread and pastries are freshly baked in the early hours of the morning and ready when the doors open. I have enjoyed their range of pastries, their early morning specials, as well as the gluten free bread which I have to order for my son.... More

Knead is clearly a popular breakfast venue on the beach front at Muizenberg, and with good reason. The wide glass facade connects the strollers, surfers and beach crowd with the diners inside and adds to vibe. There was a 10 minute wait for a table, not surprising on a glorious Saturday morning when the entire population of Cape Town must... More

In their defense, it was towards the end of their day and the staff seemed to be in a hurry to get out of there and that is possibly why the tea tasted terrible (could not finish the first cup, never mind the second) and the plain croissants with butter (no jam) were cold. My wife ordered the hot chocolate... More

The pain au chocolat was soggy and cold rather than fresh, warm and crispy. My macchiato initially came in a dirty cup. Both coffees were cold and distinctly average. The service was uninspired. Don't waste your time or your money.

Great place to grab a bite and watch the day go by. Boys loved it and wanted to go back a few days running - says it all

I have eaten here a few times. It's quite a viby spot with a nice view and I have not yet been disappointed by the food. Only the service... the curt, slow, blasé service...

I have eaten there twice in the last year. The first time, a very nice experience. The 2nd, "so so". The last time, about a month ago, an absolute shocker. Tea/coffee when brought to the table, lukewarm. Poached eggs hard. Sent back. Possibly the worst service I have ever had in a restaurant. Enough said. Will never go back.

We went in for an early lunch with my husband and baby. The food was nice and the staff were very pleasant. The place does look like it could do with a good clean and the toilets were disgusting. I had my phone stolen out of my bag and when we looked at the CCTV in there a guy came... More
