The service is excellent. Loved the soup, wish our stay was longer to taste all of them! All the other foods were delicious too. Very comfortable, great view, lovely beach. Loved the spacious bedroom and bathroom. A small microwave would be great in the apartment...More

Wandering around to find a place to eat in Betty's Bay we stumbled upon Jack's Cafe. The soup presented was a burst of taste... the fruit cake was exquisite. Will visit the cafe again...food made with care!

Your review humbles us, as we make our food with love and care in the hope that our customers notice - and you did!.... big kisses x L

We were just expecting a quick stop with simple food. Finally we stayed a little bit longer. We enjoyed the fresh food, prices more than reasonable, excellent welcome and service with a nice view. Simply worth it. 5/5

My name is Laura and I was on duty on Monday. I am very perplexed by this review as I do not recall this lady coming into the restaurant, talking to me or looking at the menu. It's a strange old world indeed.
