Great place to have a cuppa coffee, relax, look at the awesome view. I only ate here once, the food was fine as much as I remember, but it is the view and the delicious coffee that sticks in my mind....

Very well situated for a snack and drinks after your walk along the Victoria Falls. There are some local deer that wander close by too to admire.
