While having a well-deserved break from the hectic lifestyle in Cape Town, I ended up at my brother's place in Cape St Francis for 12 days. While checking out the area I noticed Full Stop Caffe and decided to give it a try during my...visit. The only regret I have was that I did not go there sooner, Tuesdays is 25% off the entire menu, which is literally quite a menu of note. What caught my eye though was the Chef's Special...Freshly caught Kob, Mussels and a choice of either a salad or chips on the side. Well, I opted for the grilled Kob, grilled Mussels and chips. Little did I know that I was in for a treat, and the highlight of my entire visit. Just to paint the picture, I was a mystery shopper for a very large Seafood Restaurant chain in the Western Cape for just short of 15 years, so I know my stuff when it comes to doing reviews on Food. My Full Stop Story goes like this... After I placed my order I enjoyed a ice cold Craft Beer, and within not too many minutes I received my meal. Not only was the presentation good, but it was also the best, most delicious piece of fish I had ever consumed. The mussels were just as good, perfectly prepared by the Chef, J.P de Meillon. To top this off, my waitress named "Babes" was really on the ball, friendly and efficient and overall, a very pleasant person from start to finish. You have to check out this place, especially for the Tuesday 25% off the entire menu excluding the Chef's Specials. The fish, should you be lucky enough to get your timing right as I did, is fresh fresh fresh out of the sea, every time. You too will be "Totally Blown Away"...More

We ended up at Full Stop Cafe as we were looking for somewhere to have lunch out of the cold wind. We were not expecting much as after 53 years of being in St Francis Bay, we had never eaten here, but we were totally...taken by surprise. The service is great with friendly efficient staff, and the food was exceptional. There is a lovely outdoor area for social distancing, and a great little water feature that the kids loved as well as lawns and a jumping castle. The artwork displayed inside was also a nice touch.More

Although it is not on the menu ask for the calamari. They serve the same dish as the restaurant across the road and it is good and the portion is big.

One is not spoiled for choices in CSF but make the effort and go looking rather than resorting to last minute pizza takeaway from this place. Staff were friendly and helpful but the pizzas were mostly unfinished. I wouldn’t order pizza from here again if...that is any help.More

Popped in on a cool rainy day in Cape St Francis. Was a great choice. The meals had large portions and were hearty for the weather. We ordered the nachos chicken and Naked Burger. This a burger without the buns. Instead of regular chips, it...comes with sweet potatoe fries. The meals were too large for us (as small eaters), but very good quality.More

We had dinner at the restaurant twice. Both times the food was excellent. The way it is presented was quite a surprise! Delicious food. The breakfast basket we had delivered to our unit was generous and scrumptious. You will not be disappointed. Go eat there!

Absolutely awesome atmosphere! Head Chef and manager always came to check if all was well! Amazing waiters which made sure that we were always taken care of! I would definitely recommend this place if you love either pizzas or even just a nice craft beer...from the local brewery! I would recommend the Hawaiian Pizza as well as the Chicken and Italian Pizza! Family Friendly and clean facilities! Also has a generator in case of loadshedding. Recommended.More
