We had a brilliant time in Zimbabwe and the hospitality and meals was first class at the excellent Shearwater Cafe. Loved the way you serve cappuccinos, brilliant idea, it is well worth a visit just for those alone.

Shearwater cafe has become my daily brunch/lunch stop. The food,and I've sampled it all, is fantastic and the staff are very friendly, well trained and look after you very well. Top service. It's in a prime location and I recommended to anyone visiting Victoria Fslls.

Description
A chic, urbane and cosmopolitan cafe right in the heart of a bush frontier town. The cafe serves a wonderful range of freshly in house prepared meals. From fry ups for breakfast (including veggie options), juice and smoothie bar, to lunch time favourites that includes simple soups and delicious wraps and paninis, to homemade burger patties, home made pizza and pasta, fantastic salads, brilliant steaks, and exceptional local bream. It is no idle boast that all meals are prepared fresh and fully in house: including baking all our own bread, making all our own pasta, hand making our burger patties and pizza bases.
