29 January, 2023

Update: 14 May 2023 – Our regular Friday evening dinners have been put on hold as we have reached the end of the season. Watch our social media channels for our updated Friday evening dinner schedule.

One of our big ticket projects for 2023, will be to stay open for longer! Hence, we’ve made the decision to start with Fridays and see how we go.

Every Friday from 03 February 2023, Oak Leaf Café will stay open from 9am-9pm.

As per usual, we’ll open at 9am for brunch & lunch service. Once lunch service ends at 2pm, we’ll be offering afternoon tea from 2pm – 5pm. This has been a very popular request from customers over the past two years so we are very excited to see how this offering is received.

During afternoon tea service, we’ll be serving freshly baked cakes, scones, muffins, mini quiches & pies, authentic Belgian waffles, pancakes, milkshakes, our famous toasties and our stunning cheese & charcuterie platters, plus full bar service (specialty coffees & teas, cold drinks, beers, ciders, G&T’s, wines and champagne). We are licensed.

Early Supper service will start at 5pm and the kitchen will close at 8pm. We plan to re-introduce our fabulous pizzas on Friday evenings plus an a la carte menu selection promoted on a blackboard. Chef Sandy will use the freshest seasonal ingredients to craft a hearty and delicious evening menu, where there will be something for everyone.

To kick-off, we’ll be offering our ever popular burgers & chips, steaks, salads & pizzas… with perhaps a surprise or two thrown into the mix to keep the options interesting and exciting!

Take-away orders will be accepted and table reservations are encouraged, preferably on WhatsApp: 066 141 5304.

Our trading hours from February 2023 will be as follows:

  • Monday: closed
  • Tuesday: open 9am-3pm
  • Wednesday open 9am-3pm
  • Thursday: open 9am-3pm
  • Friday: open 9am-9pm
  • Friday: open 9am-3pm
  • Saturday: open 9am-3pm
  • Sunday: open 9am-3pm

We look forward to welcoming you to a Friday afternoon tea OR an early summer supper under the vines or in our pretty garden. There is nothing better than an evening walk around beautiful Belvidere… why not tag on a drink and an early supper at Oak Leaf Café?

Join us for brunch!

We invite you to come and experience our hospitality, great coffee and delicious food!

Oak Leaf Knysna Restaurant - Garden Route
I couldn't be prouder being the Owner of the Oak Leaf Café in beautiful Belvidere Knysna. My sister Sandy (our Head Chef) and I have spent the last 2 years growing this business into a thriving destination restaurant on the Garden Route. I relocated to Knysna in 2015, bringing with me many years of experience in Cape Town in a highly creative online travel space. Both Sandy and I are "avid foodies" and once we joined forces in Knysna & followed our passion... magic happened! The result is Oak Leaf Café today!
