This hip bakery and café has a Vietnamese-inspired breakfast and lunch menu that keeps locals and visitors alike lining up—in spite of its location on Thesen Island, a slightly cheesy urban settlement in Knysna. Order the chicken salad, made with pineapple, avocado, mint, and cashews, or try the "Fingerfood" sampler of five small plates (mini-burgers, duck rillettes, trout salad) with fresh-baked bread from the bakery. Leave room for pastries, croissants, and almond tuiles, and a sweet Vietnamese coffee for sipping afterward.

Open Tuesdays through Saturdays 8 am to 3 pm, Sundays 8 am to 1:30 pm.
