“Best Bakery on the Garden Route”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic, love the courtyard and the patisserie - oohlalaa! A hidden gem just off the Plettenberg Bay's Main Street. Go early or they run out of the goodies!

“Food, value for money, service all hit the right note!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Enjoyed a great breakfast here with a friend, food, service and specials were all great, one thing that is not quite acceptable is charging for butter and jam for the breakfast, if you want to charge for it, that is fine, first tell the customer and give the customer the option of having the bread or toast buttered in the kitchen.

“Bread-Lovers' Paradise”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

As you walk up the stairs of The Look Out Centre you see little tables dotted around a shady courtyard. When you are seated in this pretty space and have a glance at the menu your heart should be forgiven for skipping a few beats at the sight of the prices.

If you are a vegetarian breakfast might be your better option, but I made the mistake of going during lunch. While everyone else got to part take of the delicious bakes I had the choice of quiche or soup. I chose the soup - French Onion - which was delicious and came with a slice of bread which absolutely made the meal. I wouldn't have minded just having the bread and butter. My husband didn't feel like either of these options and so went for a slice of cake which he enjoyed.

We were both looking forward to the famous almond croissants, but unfortunately they weren't listed on their menu.

“Bistro & bakery with lovely courtyardu”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Sitting under the huge tree in the courtyard one can almost forgive that this is the most expensive cappuccino in Plett and not the best. The pastries and soup are good and the warm 3 grain oats when they put in enough salt is a treat. Scrambled eggs are usually overworked.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

Croissants are great, atmosphere superb - pricing tad steep but it's Plett. Well worth a visit for the almond or chocolate croissant
