Description: There is nothing like a familiar welcome to create an atmosphere of warmth, a sense of coming home and of good things prepared with love. The Lust Bistro & Bakery enfolds you with that feeling of belonging that fills up your senses with satisfaction. Cradled in the folds of the peaceful Vrede en Lust wine estate in Franschhoek, the Lust Bistro & Bakery entices one's surroundings with the tantalising aromas of freshly baked artisan bread - imaginative creations of Jean Pierre Smith, patron chef and baker extraordinaire whose lunchtime chalkboard presents a constantly intriguing invitation of discovery. From breakfast to late lunch, there is something for everyone: salads crisp with dew-fresh seasonal garden produce, cakes just out the oven, cheese and charcuterie platters boasting South African specialities, mouthwatering chicken and beef dishes all exquisitely presented. The Lust Bistro & Bakery is definitely an experience you do not want to miss.

Two of us had the seared tuna, which was absolutely devine. They have the option to "build your own" pizza or sandwich. Great wines.

What wonderful service. Arrived at 4pm and they welcomed us and placed us right by the fire. Food was outstanding. My husband said the best chicken livers and I said the best creamy tomato soup. The burger tasted so delicious and though we shared we were so full that we could not have dessert. A wonderful team of staff. THANK YOU

Lust Bistro and Bakery is my new favorite winter hangout..the fireplace, the food, was so good and so well priced! I don't know why I was expecting it to be over the top but it was like stepping into a little log cabin.

I cannot wait to go back!!

Visited for breakfast and found food to be good. Plain breakfast menu with the old favorites but slightly over priced. Eggs Benedict needed more sauce and could be spiced up a bit for better presentation. Full breakfast pork sausage could be better. When we asked for a condiment with the bread for full breakfast we were charged extra for this. The staff are friendly and service was excellent.
