The food is honest, abundant and delicious with an emphasis on simplicity and seasonal ingredients. The décor is modern and earthy, industrial loft meets farmhouse kitchen. Choose from the à la carte menu or daily blackboard specials – and don’t forget to pick up something fresh from the bakery counter to take home.
Bistro style, the lunchtime chalkboard changes daily, depending on what’s in season and what the weather calls for. But you will always find Jean Pierre’s famously mouth-watering lamb burger on herbed ciabatta with avocado pâté and caramelised onions on the menu, as well as rustic dishes such as duck rillettes on toasted sourdough and pan-friend polenta with wild mushrooms, Gorgonzola and pine nuts.
The cheese and charcuterie platters, laden with delicious South African produce and Lust’s artisan breads, are heavenly. And all dishes are beautifully completed with Vrede en Lust’s excellent range of wines.
Booking is essential for Lust’s Sunday Buffet lunch where Jean Pierre takes the hearth oven through its paces with a selection of slow cooked roasts.
Pop in for an early bird breakfast or a late morning coffee, grab a light snack or linger over a bistro lunch and discover why Lust is fast becoming Franschhoek’s favourite place to meet and eat.Twitter
