We always enjoy the lovely coffee served at Lunar Cafe and the scrumptious breakfasts. Most times the service is friendly and efficient, but the one time we were served breakfast on cold plates.

...this place is just that - a small jewel to be enjoyed by a cup of coffee/tea and/or some food. Love the atmosphere, gentle background music, staff and menu ... it's a place where work and relaxing meets ... work, break or 'hideout' is all good ...its a place to come back to

This is a great cafe people! It's casual and comfortable with tasteful style. Importantly, the coffee really is good! And oh boy, try the carrot cake muffins! Well situated in town near lots of things. Free wifi, and friendly staff, what's not to like?!

Lovely to have something to drink, have a bite and then play some Board Games with friends like 30 seconds which always are a lot of fun!

Because of its location, looking out the open parking lot at my local Mall, I usually over look Lunar Café when looking around for a coffee place in Knysna. But this has been a mistake. When a friend invited me for coffee at Lunar I had to think long and hard before remembered where it was. The service was friendly,... More

We've created the perfect place for you to enjoy your brew, blended to perfection, the café is small and intimate, filling up quickly with a constant buzzing of coffee beans grinding away as wonderful aromas of espresso fill the air. Our grey tables are small and quaint with funky white designer chairs to offset the casual softness of our 80yr old Persian carpet which is proudly displayed in the center of triple volume space.
