Travelled through De Rust on our way to the Eastern Cape. My travel companion suggested we stop at the Trading Post for lunch. The menu is interesting with something for all.

I decided on the Coronation chicken. It was very "porridgy" & the chicken was underdone. Service was slightly haphazard. My companion found his meal to be "ok" hence the average rating.

This is a great little place, with a nice menu and a worthwhile stop in De Rust. It is a nice little place for photographers and people interested in art. It's places like this that make driving/touring the back routes much more fun than sticking to the national highways.

A breakfast should have a bit of everything and should fill the plate...not be separated by gaps and trimmings...this one has it all, from baked beans to bacon and eggs to hashbrowns! Fill that fork and then amble around in the shop that is filled to the brim with cool old stuff to look at!

I would not recommend staying over in The Rust - there is ver little to see or do: the attraction of the area is the spectacular landscape from George - Oudtshoorn + from De Rust to Beaufort west via Prince Albert. This place is a good place to stop over at for a lunch - good food, reasonable prices - before you hit the road.
