“It has it all!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Wonderful menu, great service, fantastic location. It has been a long time since I have had hard alcohol with brunch, the sight of the Bloody Good Mary on the menu was too good to miss however and was more than worth the indignation shown by my kids! Check out the French Toast with Camembert - yummy!

“Great food, great service abnd great view”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

We use TripAdvisor to source most of the restaurants we go to and this place is great. We were lucky to get a table right next to the windows that face the sea as it was too windy to sit outside. But i think most tables have a great view. Service was excellent and the food great. And the place was full which created a great buzz. Will always go back when in the garden route.

“Beautiful view”
Reviewed October 16, 2013 via mobile

A nice and cosy decorated restaurant. Outside you have a wonderful view of the Heads! You see the rough see coming into the land. Amazing, you keep on watching! The food and drinks are also good!

“Fantastic lunch, beer, view”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

I had the sweet potato enchilada and a bottle of Mitchell's lager. The view out to The Heads is incredible, and the sun was shining. If you're in Knysna and want lunch, you MUST visit the East Head Cafe

“Great for breakfast”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

We called in for breakfast during our stay in Knysna. Great location with stunning views which they open up in better weather (we had the windows closed thanks very much!). We stayed for quite some time, just enjoying the views and the stunning breakfasts without feeling pressured.

I don't know what topping was on those muffins but I'm still dreaming about it.
