My wife and I visited this amazing little coffee shop that’s a few hundred yards from Knysna Waterfront. A perfectly relaxing ambience, very friendly staff and importantly great coffee and cake. We thoroughly recommend it.

It was our first visit to this establishment during the December holiday and what a pleasant surprise. We were seated outside in the lovely shade and received our coffee and food with prompt service. It was a lovely experience and we will definitely be back.
