We have been stopping here regularly, often with overseas visitors who love it! The menu is varied and the food always good. There is both inside and outside seating, There is the added interest of the Jam Tarts jams and chutneys and cards painted by the artist Jam Tart!

Loved this place. Perfectly cooked thin crust pizza. Not too much cheese, more authentic Italian style. You can choose your own toppings or select from the menu. The butternut squash and beetroot & feta salad was beautiful. Staff were very helpful and friendly Loved it!!!!

Hi kylieww Thank you for your excellent review! We prepare all our meals from fresh and where possible, local ingredients. The butternut and beetroot are out of a Barrydale garden! It was lovely to meet you and your family and your children have the most incredible manners. It was a pleasure serving you all and hope to see you again... More

Hi Oliver C Thank you for your excellent review! Next time you visit, the dogs will have their very own refreshment station - we are in the process of upgrading the garden area. I trust the remainder of your weekend was just as good and that we will be seeing you again sooner rather than later? Kind regards Sarah More

Relaxed Monday evening with the family. Loved the fresh taste of the Harvest pizza. My husband enjoyed the lamb curry and the children were happy with a pizza and salad/kebab respectively Restaurant was full of both locals and visitors to the area. Very child friendly. Sarah, the hostess, welcoming and attentive. Good service. Will definitely go back

In exploring Barrydale we came across The Jam Tart. They have friendly service as well good pizza's. Woodfired right under your nose. Slightly out from the busyness of the other more popular places along the main road but worth it. Try out their smoothies and don't forget to pour yourself a jar of honey

We ordered a pie and bobotie, glass of wine and small bottle of water, all for R225. The pie was to die for,... More

The Jam Tarts is worth a visit. Under new ownership, it offers an exciting menu, value for money and they make the best pizza's in the Cape. Best of all is that the venue is pet friendly and they sell local art. The decor is amazing. All round good vibes. Perfect way to spend a Sunday.

Hi chanelle l Thank you for your excellent review! As you gathered we welcome humans and animals alike. Being a long distance (road) traveler myself, I noticed there was a lack of pet friendly venues on South African roads so when I took over The Jam Tarts it was the first policy I set in stone :-) I am beginning...
