East Head Café – Knysna

East Head Café sits on a skirt of land just before the mouth of the Knysna Lagoon.  Clean lines and uncomplicated decor complements the natural surroundings. Vistas of azure waters and rocky crags enhance the al fresco dining experience.

I was hoping that the menu selection would be as enticing as the scenery.  I’m always on the lookout for the creative use of flavours and textures.  Some of their menu options certainly piqued my interest like the Chicken Livers and Strawberry Salad.  But it was the Butternut & Blue Cheese Salad that caught my eye, consisting of roast butternut, blue cheese and sundried tomatoes with a fig & dill dressing.  The result: a smooth combination of fragrant blends with a pleasing after taste.

Should the East Head Café have been in existence 107 years ago, patrons sitting on the outside patio might have observed the unfortunate sinking of the German vessel, Paquita.  Much speculation, controversy and intrigue surrounds her untimely demise.  This giant relic is now a popular dive spot for those keen on wreck diving.

With friendly staff and a menu suitable for all ages and occasions East Head Café appeals to families, friends, locals and holidaymakers alike.
