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.

Service was great, atmosphere was lovely and we had the best cappuccino there! You have to try it!! We went back three times for the cappuccino - it was that good!

Located on the main corner of the CBD in Victoria Falls. The restaurant offers an eclectic menu. We had sweet potato soup which was quite tasty and a crocodile wrap. The wrap had good flavor but was dry. We found the outdoor dining area unpleasant with multi-colored flashing lights. Service was poor. I think they were dominated by an inside party instead of us.

The choices on the menu are very limited - and the portions when they arrive are a bit on the small side. I had sweet potato and ginger soup which tasted nice. My husband had a beef strips wrap that was a very small portion. The location is good for local hotels, easy walking distance in fact.

Setting makes you think you are at a Paris pavement cafe.This supported by the multiracial multilingual clientele.Heard the loud nasal American twang on one table.The no nonsense deutsch whispers on another and choppy Chinese to add to the cosmo grill.
Relax because meal takes a bit of time but when it does well worth the wait.You’re on holiday in Africa right so take a chill pill.
Had the lemon and herb chicken done in the Portuguese galinha style.For you non gastronomes this means it is marinated in garlic, lemon rosemary and left to set in.It is then charcoal grilled.This is proper Zimbabwean chicken fed on non gmo corn and raised on abundant sunshine.Boy you can taste these in the succulent juicy chicken.Meal accompanied with Greek salad and fries all freshly done.Excellent stuff went back the next day for more and got the same quality .
