Situated on the rocks of the famous Eastern Head in Knysna, Eastern Head Café offers one of the most exquisite views in Knysna, along with an unfussy café menu – exactly what you’re looking for when you are on holiday in the Garden Route. With its beach café feel and views over sparkling blue water, Eastern Café is a firm favourite along the Garden Route.
Starting with a delicious cappuccino, we took a look at the variety of cooked breakfasts on offer. With names such as low tide, neap tide and spring tide, you won’t forget where you are! Breakfasts come jam-packed with extra touches, such as pork sausages and burger patties, for the famished. As huge breakfast fans, we were gob-smacked by the liberal smatterings of salmon and hollandaise breakfasts, with unusual omelettes competing for the top spot.
Moving into lunch, we had already done a little research and knew that the beer-battered fish with thick cut chips was a must-have. Other robust lunch options include grilled sirloin steak; deep-fried calamari; Prego roll and chips; grilled prawns and Cape Malay seafood curry. The salad menu once again impressed us, with a wide selection of salads big enough to enjoy as a main meal, such as the Asian chicken, smoked salmon trout and chicken Caesar salads.
The open sandwich and burger selection beg for return visits, as does the cocktail menu! Claiming to serve the best cocktails in Knysna, who could resist?
