It is little wonder that there are always rows of motor cycles outside Jack Sprat's Restaurant in De Rust. If a 'breakfast run' means just that, then this is the place. Traditional English Breakfast (South African style) is the order of the day!

Glad you liked the breakfasts, next time you visit us, try the Jack Dog - homemade and home smoked sausage. The burger patties we serve are also house-made so I know what is in them:)

Food was outstanding. Porger and chips was the best I've had. Really good cheesecake as well. Not to mention a friend left her purse there and they held it for us until the next day. Great food and super friendly, this place has it all!

Artistic setting. This restaurant offers amazing service and great food. I enjoyed the fact that we could leave our details and comments on the wall for all clients to see when they pass through the very small town.
