One of our favourite breakfast hangouts in Knysna. Wonderful view through the Heads, great service by friendly staff, excellent cappuccino and tasty well presented breakfast. Also good for lunch.

Great service friendly staff. Wonderful view to the rocks and the sea. Nice food at a good price. No reservations possible and not possible for dinner because it closes at 16h30.

The service is good. The view is great and the food is out of this world. You wish you could come back every day to order the next menu item.

After a Bicycle ridding to the Knysna heads we stoped for lunch. We found a place in east head cafe. We had a great scenic view to the lagoon and service and food were great. Prices are reasonable. Surely a restaurant to suggest.

Thank gady2014
