“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Not what you expect to find in an industrial area. An artsy zone with a food gem. Whitewashed offers great all homemade foods care of the proprietors Candice & Tammy. I find lots of excuses to "have to" go up to the industrial area. When there definitely do not miss the carrot cake and great coffee.

“An oasis”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Whitewashed is an amazing oasis in the most unlikely setting. The restaurant/bistro/craft centre is situated right in the middle of Knysna's Industrial Area! However, once you have passed the lavender lined pathway and crossed the threshold of this unassuming small factory type building, you are met with a sense of being miles from anywhere. Everything suggests home cooking and healthy eating, ok, so there are a few calories to count! The court yard through the back of the shop is the epitomy of peace and tranquillity birds sing in the bushes and butterflies do their winged dance as they busy themselves on their way. The two young ladies who run whitewashed have it exactly right.... Keep up the great work ladies!!

“Must have Lemon Meringue”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

Incongruously, a small cottage stands amongst the furniture manufacturers, sawmills and crafters that make up Knysna. A relic of the forest dwellers, Whitewashed at 5 Nobel Street is a must visit for stunning deserts. Not that there is anything wrong with the breakfast we enjoyed.
