Description: This cosy coffee shop is situated in a Victorian-inspired pavilion, with outdoor seating available in the lush courtyard. Breakfast and lunch are served - and whether you feel like a cappuccino and a slice of cake, a breakfast or a light lunch, Fynbos Coffee Shop serves it with flair. It is a busy coffee shop and popular lunchtime meeting spot during the day. Dishes are inspired by local availability, trends and the seasons, with something for every taste. Due to the nature of our business we do not allow children under ten years.

Fynbos is accessed through the security gate in the adjoining gift shop, but don't let that put you off. I've been there for lunch with my wife on two occasions and I can tell you that if you only have time for one meal in Mossel Bay you won't go far wrong with Fynbos.

The first thing you'll notice is how many locals there are eating here, its clearly not just a favourite restaurant of mine. The lunch menu is smallish but there is a specials board which usually includes a few local South African dishes as well as a fish and soup of the day. The food is not especially adventurous, but is, fresh ingredients cooked with attention to the flavour and presentation. The portions are generous (possibly too large for lunch), so you may want to pace yourself as the desserts are excellent.

The only real downside is the music which is a classical track that lasts about 3 minutes. This is played on a continuous loop. Its difficult to see why what is otherwise such a good restaurant can't get a few more tracks to its background music, whilst this is only a minor issue as a visitor you get the impression that the staff must be quietly going mad (though they're too polite to show it).

Lovely ambience, excellent chef and great food what could be better! For the same price you could have a below average meal in a well known cowboy eatery. Here you can have a really nice dinner with great atmosphere. Booking is essential because space is limited!
