Very relaxed atmosphere with good service and great food. A magical daily selection of cakes and pastries available too! My favorite lunch item is the Buddha Bowl and their freshly made juices….

The perfect place to go unwind at. There is a warm breeze you will experience while enjoy your scrumptious meal(of which i believe is made with love). Highly recommend this place to anyone in Maun or passing through Maun.

Delicious food at a reasonable price (for Botswana). We had the wrap from the daily special and it was a huge portion. Friendly staff, indoor and outdoor seating available.

Reliable burgers, sandwiches, and salads served on a lively patio. A veritable crossroads of locals and the many international travellers flying in and out of Maun, seemingly every minute. Totally fun.

They were out of salami but replaced with chicken… still good. I like the amount of jalapeño used. Cheese melted nicely too.

With a very stressful visit to Maun we needed a good cup of coffee and a sustaining breakfast. We got the coffee and waited an hour for food only to be told the order had not gone through to the kitchen. With multiple management staff...and waitresses in evidence it would have been nice if we has been checked on even once in that time to be ask if we were OK . That way someone might have noticed the problem. A very disappointing experience.More

What a great find. Sheer luck as the rain forced us to stop. Great coffee and even though some things were not available it was obvious it was because they are busy and want to keep up only the best food coming out. Yummy salad...as a decoration on my daughter's BLT signalled that their specials are probably excellent.More
