Vrede en Lust: Mediterranean Nights at Lust Bistro

Vrede en Lust Events

Winter at Lust Bistro turns up the heat…

Unpretentious bistro food has been Lust Bistro’s winning formula since it opened in 2013, with a vast wood-fired oven baking up a storm of sourdough breads at night and pizzas by day, as well as a delicious family-friendly menu of classic and creative farm fare. At the heart of historic, family-owned Vrede en Lust wine estate (bordering the Simondium wine area of the Franschhoek Valley) it’s a popular stop for breakfast or lunch, before or after wine-tasting, with a wide terrace, grass and a jungle gym as well as beautiful gardens to wander.

For winter there are several more good reasons to visit…

Weekend brunch club

Vrede en Lust Events Brunch Club

Lust Bistro’s four-course brunch is the perfect way to while away a relaxed Saturday or Sunday. Kick off with smashed avo on their 60% rye toast, then tuck into a mouth-watering spinach, trout and chevre frittata. Next up is a mini pan of shakshuka – a spicy tomato and chickpea stew topped with pieces of boerewors and a perfectly poached egg, and served with fluffy ciabatta. Finally a creamy sweet coconut chia, with fresh mango and almond slivers. Why not add a refreshing mimosa or a zesty Bloody Mary to elevate your brunch experience?
