We entered Jack Sprat's not knowing what to expect (it was our first time in De Rust, so picked it fairly randomly from the many quaint restaurants that line the main street), and were warmly greeted by Aletta and shown to a sunny table in the corner. The restaurant has a homely, kitchen-y feel to it, and there is a... More

We were on our way to Prince Albert to do a round trip that included the two passes, Meiringspoort and Swartberg with the intention of stopping in De Rust for lunch. What a pleasant surprise! Authentic homemade burger patties the likes of which you just don't get any more. Personal service with hands on owners, and of course great coffee,... More

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:) More

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!

Hi, it was a pleasure helping out with your bag. The Porger is becoming a popular seller now and a new burger creation is in the pipeline to go with the first two. More

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.

Having tried all the other eateries in de Rust we tried Jack Sprat's despite the name. We decided to khave a mid day meal for a change so tool the plunge.
