“Best Coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

If in Knysna, we always visit East Head Café for their Mocca Coffee - it is an experience! hot coffee with a beautiful, generous heaped spoon of delicious chocolate in the bottom of the glass! A bit on the pricy side and I do believe that they are starting to price themselves out of the market now, according to some of the locals. I have enjoyed delicious breakfasts and they have a stunning location as well. definitely worth a visit!

Best lemon meringue pie wish I could have it every night! Cosy place overlooking the ocean. Nice biscotti too.

“Excellent food, view and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014

East Head cafe is situated at the Heads and if seated outside you have a beautiful view. We had seafood and chicken curry which were excellent. It was a bit cool but we were handed blankets and warm water bottles which shows a caring environment. Service was also excellent.

“Best view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

The view is amazing and the food is delicious. The restaurant is always full of people with a great vibe. And if it is too cold outside, you can grab a blanket to put over your knees to keep you warm.
