Although the Food Fundi is tucked away between the big shops, it is worth making the effort to get to it ... We love their Lamb burgers with sweet potato chips. The staff are friendly and helpful. We love going there.More

Description
Conveniently found just off the N4 en route to the Kruger National Park and all of Mpumalanga's major tourist centres, The Food Fundi Coffee Cafe is a welcome haven in the heart of Nelspruit's bustling CBD. With the sound of fresh espresso beans being ground, the comforting scent of baking bread, and fragrant home made preserves and chutneys bubbling away in the kitchen, it's the perfect venue for your lunchtime business meeting (with free wireless Internet), or for breakfast smoothies and fluffy omelettes with friends after gym. At The Food Fundi, it's all about mouth-watering flavour, value for money, gourmet daytime meals, and all-day breakfasts.
