Description: With panoramic views of the sea and the mountains from inside the restaurant or outside on the deck, Jack's brings you fine home cooked fare prepared with the freshest of local produce. Whether it is a freshly baked croissant, our hand rolled pasta made with free range eggs or a decadent dessert you can be certain of a delictable experience. We are fully licensed and have a passion for coffee that is reflected in our diverse drinks menu.

Awesome menu of home made food (even the pasta is made on the premises). Incredible value as the portions are huge and filling.
Great variety of drinks and save some room for desert as its is special too.

Stumbled upon this fab little spot after a trip to visit the Betty's Bay penguins, and we're so glad we did! Doesn't look like much from the outside, but the service was really friendly, and the food was absolutely delicious.

Special thumbs up go to the chowder, which is outstanding and the Sussex fruit cake (an old family recipe) is to die for! The Xhosa chicken stew is worth a try too. The views from the restaurant are also stunning - great place to while away a few hours over coffee and cake. There's also a lovely-looking little art gallery attached. It was unfortunately closed when we arrived, but the cafe was charmingly decorated with a few interesting little pieces of craft.

Unassuming, nondescript place. Lacks ambience but worth a visit indeed. Very efficient and friendly service, lovely food and stunning view of the mountains and ocean. The potato wedges are a must have-at least one portion! The cheesecake is truly decadent.

Unprepossessing looking building but the first floor restaurant, although rather sparsely furnished, was an excellent place for lunch after visiting the penguin colony.

Laura was friendly and helpful and all seven of us enjoyed our meals. The pasta is homemade and the squash and spinach sauce was simply delicious. Xhosa chicken stew was fab as was the homemade bread. The restaurant also serves delicious coffee.

Homemade potato wedges went down a treat too.
