Best food, best coffee in Knysna. Beautiful garden setting and great service. The cakes (baked on the premises) are absolute works of art. Big thumbs up!

“Best In town”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

Tin house is like our home away from home. Coffee is great, Cakes are amazing & food is consistently delicious. Try the avo & haloumi wrap. Staff is friendly & go out of their way to make you welcome. Any trip to Knysna would not be complete without at least 1 visit to Tin House Cafe.

“The best feel at home place in Knysna”
Reviewed February 3, 2012

Tin House is my new home! The staff is wonderful and always in such a great and positive mood. The venue is cosy, garden like...you forget you are in town. Wireless venue for the working people, children friendly, 200% fresh juices with an amazing choice, best omelette (try the ham and goat cheese one), variety of breads and the cappuccino is divine!!! Tin House also has a loyalty card system and a selection of cakes for every occasion. I am so happy Knysna has a place like this one!
