This past week I had the privilege of finding AFRICAN BEAN coffee shop and stunning curio shop in Knysna. Excellent food, delicious carrot cake and the staff were excellent. This is a must must if you are passing through or lucky enough to visit more...then once. I wasn’t expecting to find such beautiful things to buy while my husband enjoyed delicious freshly brewed coffee ... Only bad thing is I am leaving today. Thank you for making our holiday Excellent!!!!More
