If you're a locavore, you'll love the way East Head spotlights local produce-honey from Knysna bees, macadamia nuts from local orchards and excellent locally made cheese. Fish and chips fans will find Easthead's feathery light version is unbeatable. A good variety of salads and vegetarian fare includes hearty kale and quinoa salad with blue cheese, sparked with orange and cranberries. Try a classic like eggs hollandaise with either ham or salmon and two perfectly poached eggs served on crunchy farmhouse toast. Among the blackboard specials is usually a perfectly spiced seafood curry and cake of the day.
The carefully selected list features local wines and beers. For fun, try the breakfast martini or Bloody Good Mary, or go for an ultra refreshing minty virgin mojito.
The staff is a wonder-consistently friendly and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. Smiles are abundant even in the busiest of times. The restaurant overflows in season and the pace is still quite reasonable.
Picnic tables on the patio are coveted for their closeness to the sea and come with all the salt air you can breathe. The bright and airy interior, decorated with old photos of the area and colorful contemporary African art, is equally pleasing. Kids enjoy their own play area on the patio along with crayons and coloring books.
Showing off the best of Knysna-views, food, and attitude.
