Graze By The River is a coffee bar and restaurant situated in one of the original 1820 settler's home next to the banks of the Kowie River in Port Alfred.

The venue boasts a private garden area at the back of the property where you can escape from the busy Van der Riet street and enjoy freshly roasted coffee or sample some of the many homemade dishes on offer. The menu is based on locally available produce from fresh seafood, smoked meats and organic vegetables, interesting tasty dishes are supplemented by daily specials.

The restaurant has its own smoker for preparing a lot of the dishes and the coffee bar roasts its own green beans daily ensuring good quality fresh coffee. So whether your looking for a great breakfast, some coffee and cake or a tasty homemade meal come and enjoy the experience of Graze by the River. Evening meals are strictly by reservation and we are open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings only. We are closed on Wednesday. We serve breakfast from 09:00 until 11:30 with lunch from 12 noon, reservations are preferred.


Graze has a daily food specials board, in addition to the normal a la carte menu, which highlights dishes that are fresh and locally available on the day. Graze hosts a Food and Wine Pairing Event every two months, Nick usually chooses a boutique wine estate to showcase their wines and creates dishes around the various wines to bring out and enhance their flavours and textures.
