The salads are quite big but very good! Its a nice place to go and have a few drinks or a coffee while family and friends are shopping. I went there more than once.

We enjoyed our breakfast here but found it quite expensive. Although previous posts have mentioned this restaurant is good for gluten free it is not really. They used to serve gluten free cake but apparently no longer. I managed to swap the toast for mushrooms and have the full English but that was really the only option.

Good Day. Thank you for your review on Trip Advisor. My sincere apologies for the lack of gluten free product that we have on our menu. Due to the foreign currency shortages currently being experienced in Zimbabwe, we have been unable to buy in the gluten free ingredients needed. I will advise our waiters to let people know about this... More

I would dare say I have enjoyed one of the best Chicken burger meals at this place. It is served with real chicken meat and bacon.

It is ideal for breakfasts and lunches and serves lovely treats, cakes and muffins for those that are not too hungry or would like to enjoy a tea. A great... More

This was a hop skip and a jump from our hotel, the N1, so came for breakfast and snacks a few times! The setting is wonderful, very relaxing with artistic vibes and comfy seating, surrounded by local arts shops. The steak sandwich I had was delicious! I was truly not expecting it to be so good! Tea and coffee were... More

The Africa Cafe is tucked into a little plaza area and provided a good opportunity to sample great local foods. We were there on a Saturday evening and were treated to some very good live music. It was fun listening to some classic Van Morrison tunes being played with an African interpretation and sound.

As a vegetarian I had been struggling to find a great meal in Africa. They did me a huge salad with extra avocado like I asked and they were so accommodating and nice about the fact I didn't order from the menu. My group of friends and I all bought an array of coffees that were so good we ended... More

A funky little restaurant, filled with great vibes, friendly people, chilled music, delicious food and ice cold drinks, this place has so many fun things happening all the time, we even have a Magic Far Away tree where the kids can sit under and enjoy their meal, while looking for all the hidden creatures. The Africa Cafe looks forward to your visit.
