It is centrally located in what was the Knysna Fine Art Gallery building, on Grey Street in Knysna. The emphasis is on accessible and quick food made with the same goodness, high quality ingredients and attention to detail that île de païn is known for, with efficient and friendly service, in a relaxed and casual atmosphere.
It is intended for the person on the run, seeking a fun, nutritious snack for breakfast or lunch. Grab and go - or slow down a bit, grab a casual seat, and enjoy your meal...
A small selection of île de païn loaves is offered, as well as individual hearth breads, “petit pain” cakes, cookies, freshly pressed juice and coffee. “To go” meals and snacks in portions for one include: salads, soups, sandwiches and savoury bites. They make nutritious breakfast or lunch as well as great picnic or “padkos” fare.
There are familiar faces from ile de païn to welcome you and dish up good food and friendly service. Monica leads the team, with Linda (île de païn sous chef) guiding the kitchen.
Think slow food served fast.
