The staff at 8 Knots are wonderful- Saru, Vivek and Narendra always go above and beyond to make me feel welcome when I arrive on my morning walk and make a fantastic cup of coffee every time. Highly recommend!

This weekend I had the pleasure of dining at 8 Knots cafe in Bayview and I cannot speak highly enough of my experience. From the moment I walked in, the exceptional customer service left me feeling welcomed and cared for. The breakfast with friends and the lunch platter boxes for us to take onto the boat were absolutely amazing . Each item was carefully prepared and beautifully presented. It was clear that the team at 8 Knots put a lot of thought and care into each dish. The cafe's atmosphere was cozy and inviting, making it the perfect place to catch up with friends or simply relax with a good book. Above all, I appreciated the dedication to customer satisfaction displayed by the staff, particularly Sunny, he went above and beyond to ensure that my visit was nothing short of amazing. I cannot recommend 8 Knots cafe enough, and I look forward to my next visit. Thank you for a truly outstanding dining experience!

8 Knots Cafe at @Bayviw - Sunny , Rick & their team, are friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. ☕️Campos coffee always fabulous ????????????, food is fresh and a huge variety. I also love how you get a takeaway & sit on the steps of the Bayview outdoor public pool/ Baths & have your coffee/lunch & watch the boats. 8 Knots is like visiting good friends that have a cafe ????
