“The Cherry on the cake”
Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

To fellow trip advisors: Looking for a highlight to your trip in Knysna? Well then this is your coffee shop. Centrally situated with a Great outdoor vibe. They do it all and to the "T" the coffee shop in itself serves excellent food and really great prices. They too have a awesome little bakery for fresh breads and probably the most amazing cakes you will ever taste.
I recommend:
The Cafe Latte (Their coffe is awesome)
Buy a cake YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!
Laze on the couches outside and soak up the atmosphere

Enjoy

“Lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

We stumbled across this place by chance on a holiday visit to Knysna. Lovely atmosphere and good food, service was a little slow but I think this is a place to take your time and relax!

“Tranquil”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Lovely little haven of peace in the town centre. Ideal for meeting for coffee, or having a lovely cooked breakfast or lunch. A special little place.

“A hidden sanctuary just steps from Knysna Quays”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Just a few paces from the main entrance to Knysna Quays, this little cafe is a delight. Peaceful, tasteful and with delighful gardens, the food is amazingly good too. fresh fruit juice blends to die for - the ginger and mint and apple mmmm! Salads came with edible flowers and tasty dressings. On a Saturday morning there was live music too. So easy to step in for quick coffee and stay for hours. We went 3 times in 5 days!

“Hidden Treasure”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

What a little treasure to find. When we walked up the street from the Knysna waterfront area we didn't see this cafe which is set back from the road. On the return we popped in and had a great coffee and cake. We met Max and had a really good chat to him. It is comfofrting to meet a proprieter who is passionate about the business. Recommended
