First Fridays is a collaboration between White Washed Café and Red Bridge Brewery and is something to diarise. Their shared courtyard, lit up with fairy lights, candles underneath the trees and stars surrounded by open fires create a magic filled atmosphere.
The menu is small yet comprehensive – mostly burgers but also something for everyone; vegetarian included and in true White Washed Café style, the food is pretty and delicious. This combined with the crafted beer is a perfect pairing. If you haven’t tried the Red Bridge Brew you simply have to experience their great tasting beer – fast becoming local legend, making Knysna proud.
I was most impressed with the Red Bridge ladies cocktail – a shandy of sorts – remarkable, because you can taste the delicate aroma of the hops in an amazing mix of citrus and tropical that is truly delicious.
All this combined with various and local live musicians (we were treated to Cobalt Blue on the 5th of August), ensures a thoroughly enjoyable evening out. There was a nice mix of old and young, happy children included.
First Fridays is a fantastic Friday family unwind.
