Absolutely loved this cafe. Excellent cappuccino and eggs beny for breakfast. Fish and chips for lunch is also a great bet. Desserts are delicious... especially the carrot cake! You won't be disappointed. The atmosphere is fantastic! You can watch the boats, the waves and the people.

We are staying nearby and decided to stop for lunch @ 1 pm yesterday. We were able to be seated outside. Lovely picnic tables & what a pretty ocean view! The staff is pleasant & efficient. I had the Malay seafood curry & my husband had the yellowtail catch of the day - both delicious! We also had the homemade carrot cake & coffee. If we lived nearby, this would certainly be a regular favorite!

Me and my wife and our baby had lunch here. There's a hidden small beach down below that is perfect for a short swim, then the friendlyness of the staff and good food at East Head. From what we saw this is THE place to go around Knysna!

A wonderful spot , perfectly located with amazing views.
They even have little blankets/shawls for you as it gets a bit chilly so take a jumper just in case.
A must try is their coffee milkshake, simple yet delicious.
The ladies who were serving were an absolute delight and very friendly.
Overall a must visit when in the area.
