I have a breakfast here regularly and really enjoy the scramble and poached eggs. The mince on toast is a winner too! The coffee is always excellent! For lunch the home made pies and burgers are delicious! what a wonderful atmosphere!

The coffee and food great when you eventually get it. Lovely venue but wasted as the service leaves a lot to be desired. Queuing time and again to place orders just does not work - particularly in season.

We stopped in here because Ile de Pain was so full. This looked like a great alternative- just around the corner, food is supplied from Ile de Pain on a "self- service" basis. Which would have been great if the food was fresh or edible. My almond croissant was swimming in water- probably an attempt to freshen up stale food.... More

We are regular visitors to this cafe and have always enjoyed the friendly and welcoming atmosphere. The food is always very tasty and it is evident that they only use the highest quality ingredients. Coffee is excellent. Staff try their best to accommodate every request and are friendly and professional. We will keep on returning!

While they do have waitresses, we had to order up front, which would be okay if the system worked well. We ordered two museli and two croissants. The two museli and one croissant arrived. The croissant was stale. When it was returned we were told that we would have to wait as the croissants were in the oven. They then... More

Snotty poached egg, shewy "fresh" baguette, sour breakfast quiche, very slow and partly unfriendly service. Left without paying 2 coffees because were ignored for a long while standing at the till. But then suddenly staff woke up! Miss the old Mon Petit Pain. Bad management? Btw photos are from the previous location

Used to be decent place. Disappointing now. I used to like their almond croissants, today's was inedible. And over priced. Asked to speak to manager and none to be found. On a Saturday morning breakfast, thought that was rush hour... Basic stuff going wrong

The vibe, service and coffee are great, but the food comes st a price, and a heavy one at that. There are many other great coffee shops in Knysna which offer the same service and quality at half the price. I suggest you stick to coffee or avoid
