There’s a new summer menu at one of our favourite hangouts, Lust Bistro & Bakery

Located on the blissful Vrede en Lust Wine Estate in Franschhoek, Lust Bistro & Bakery welcomes patrons into a worldly atmosphere filled with warmth and contentment. The enticing aromas of freshly baked artisan bread (which we still can’t get enough of, by the way) is enough to make you want to stay there forever. But that is just the beginning.

By Mikaela Kagan

Patron chef and exceptionally renowned baker, Jean-Pierre Smith, creates an abundance of beautifully presented and delightfully tasteful dishes: crisp salads, freshly baked cakes, cheese and charcuterie platters, succulent chicken and beef dishes, whatever your fancy, there’s something for you!
