With every return to Knysna, we plan our day around having breakfast at the East Head Cafe. It is always a delight - friendly staff and wonderful location.
Great menu, there's something for everyone. Whether you order normal eggs and bacon, or the breakfast burrito, the food makes it's way to the table within minutes of ordering, and no fault can be found.
They get quite busy after 09:00 in the morning, so I suggest you go early. They do circulate tables quite quickly, and if you have to wait for a table, it won't take forever.
Visiting this cafe is a must, and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Knysna.

Our first visit to East Head was a bit shaky but after being convinced to give it a second chance, we keep going back!
Best fried fish in Knysna, and they're not even a seafood focused restaurant!
Speedy friendly service, ecclectic crockery adds character, and a view you could gaze at all day! Not to mention the sublime biscotti that comes with the coffee, yumm!

On one of the colder mornings on our vacation in Knysna we decided to head down to East Head Cafe for breakfast. When we arrived we were warmly greeted by the staff & the cozy fireplace! The outside cold was immediately forgotten. We got a nice table at the window that has really amazing views of the Knysna Heads. Our waiter was very charming & ensured that our 3 year old had crayons and paper to keep himself occupied with. The food was very good & so was their cappuccinos. Overall this was a really great breakfast experience & I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone!
