On our way through Knysna we went past Tin house cafe for a quick snack for the road. It was not quite the "quick" snack we hoped for but once we tasted the wraps we realised it was all worth the wait. The wraps are all handmade, fresh and super delicious. We loved the food so much we stopped by... More

We came here after walking around Waterfront for a late lunch, what a gem we've discovered! Food: All produce are organic and super fresh! The freshly made juices are delicious and the meals are tasty and satisfying. Service: They have free Wi-Fi~ The service was ok, there weren't many customers in the early afternoon. The staff was very attentive and... More

Had breakfast two mornings in a row and could not fault it. The eggs were absolutely wonderful and the fresh fruit juices were to die for! Good to know the produce is super fresh and organic. The cakes were also amazing, had one to take away both mornings for on our road trips.

This was the best breakfast on our entire South African trip!! The chai latte was perfect, the juices delicious and the eggs poached perfectly. It was so great we went back twice! Wish we lived locally so that we could visit all the time.

Lovely little cafe minutes from the harbour and town serving truly delicious fruit drinks as well as the normal fare. Excellant range of snacks and cakes with a service to equal them. Parking is adjacent and they have reasonable Wi-Fi speeds.

We loved this cafe which provided an excellent range of snacks and light meals and a good range of drinks. The milk shakes were amazing! The furnishings were all geared up to creating a relaxed environment. We visited 3 times and will certainly head back when we return to South Africa. I can only see it getting even better with...

It's hard to leave once you've sat at this beautiful gem of a coffee shop nestled in the heart of Knysna CBD. I frequent many coffee shops and have tried many in my travels and this one has to rank almost at number one. Incredible coffee, mouth watering freshly made juices along with an incredible menu of fresh and delicious... More

Lovely outside garden venue, with charming music and efficient service, love the fountain placement with the Knysna locals taking a bath. My only crit would be the bread could be little more rustic or homemade !

Quaint little Cafe/restaurant in the heart of Knysna. Large menu choice and interesting fresh health juices. Tinhouse has a liquor license for those wanting a glass of wine. We enjoyed a chatty brunch at a table nestled under the trees at the back of the Cafe. Meal was fresh and tasty and the waiter gave friendly good service. Frequented by... More
