Friends and I had lunch here on our way back to Cape Town. The owner, Sarah, is friendly and the service was good. We all had burgers (beef or ostrich) together with a salad and really good, crisp chips. A very pleasant and reasonable meal was had in this farm house style restaurant. For warm days, there are tables outside.

Hi georgestof Thank you for your positive review. Incidentally, today is the day I have been working on improving the beef burger - I hope you stop in again to give the new burger a try. Kind regards Sarah More

How delightful to find that a place that holds special memories still does so! New owners, a new lick of paint and some changes to the menu. All in all not a bad thing. I had the smoked salmon and cream cheese and my partner a mushroom, green pepper and bacon. Both were delicious, crisp and full of toppings. Great... More

Having to make an early start I popped in, only to realise that they had not quite opened, however, the ladies were happy to welcome me and I enjoyed the delicious breakfast special (eggs, bacon, mushrooms, boerewors, tomato and 2 slices of toast) which meant I didn't have to eat for the rest of the day!!!

Jam Tarts has a genie in the kitchen who makes the most delectable lamb curry, we've eaten here on numerous occasions, the pizza is good, and the owner Terri makes a mean salad, fresh and always more than enough also give her homemade chilli a try it goes well with the pizza.

A very charming welcome with laid back vibes. We just popped in for a drink, but will definately return for lunch next time. there were loads of home made treats for sale (jams, pickles etc) Very quirky and interesting decor - i would recommend that you just walk around and snap some pics... it was really nice.

We've been here multiple times for their incredible homemade beef burgers. Definitely worth the trip! 10/10.

Cute little place, great smoothie, but the burger I had was average and so was the service. Otherwise it's a great location and setting.
