“A good place to meet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Chaplins in Woodmill Centre is a welcoming place to eat or just to have a coffee. The food is excellent and reasonable, but its greatest charm is its location, superb for just sitting a reading your newspaper or just people watching while you enjoy a good meal or a drink.

“Excellent breakfast and lunch spot in Knysna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Excellent breakfast and lunch spot in Knysna. Large selection of confectionary sweets and treats. Very cozy with inside and outside seating. Enjoyed the food. Great freshly-made smoothies and juices. Woodmill Lane. Situated on open court with live music and entertainment from a gazebo in the center of the court.

“Great Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Good place to have coffee, read the newspaper and watch people passing through the courtyard of Woodmill Lane which is a history lesson with a view. One of the better coffees in Knysna yet one of the cheapest. Friendly owners and waitrons.

We had an excellent meal, fantastic brewed coffee and an out of the world Banana Blast - a mix of banana, yoghurt and nuts. An absolute must if you are in the area.

“Our favourite haunt”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

.Lovely setting under the trees - we visit Chaplin's several times a week. Bruce and Jenny have created a warm, friendly environment in which to while away and hour drinking the best coffee in Knysna and from time to time enjoying their delicious food. The breakfast is perfect and their lunches excellent. Friendly staff and a lovely ambiance.
