Really nice to find an amazing salad! Bacon and avo with all sort of other delicious bits too. And great to be able to sort out some internet stuff due to their good wifi. Love the outside patio area - protected but nice to be outside.

There is nowhere in Gaborone more quaint than Cafe Dijo. All the art is done by hairdresser, Marnie, giving it that Cape Town kinda vibe. Favourite breakfast on the menu...chicken livers! After a morning climb at Kgale Hill, this is the best place to visit for probably the best coffee in town too. Super service!

The staff were extremely well informed and friendly. Popped in for a takeaway and ended up adding is a few muffins. Extremely busy over lunch, lots of locals but worth a visit is you are passing through Gaborone.

Basic food done very well, nice small facility - get there early as they become very busy over lunch service. Good place to catch up and enjoy the environment!!

This wonderful place is situated in a small shopping centre but that does mean it would be out of place in the coolest areas of London. Loved the decor. Employees were delightful and attentive. The homemade cakes on the counter were very tempting, however I went for breakfast so they were out of bounds. I had the"house" breakfast which was... More

Love this place. We go there often as a family. Food is great. It has such a "home feeling" to it. As if I am having lunch at my mom's place.

Cafe Dijo is normally packed at lunchtimes, which is a very good recommendation. The service is friendly and efficient and the food wholesome. Their home made lemonade is delicious. The restaurant has been renovated recently and this has also made a good change.

Love the food and atmosphere here. Coffee is okay, not spectacular. Breakfast is really good, and they will amend the menu for you. The service is good too. The atmosphere is very nice, their outside eating area is great. They have free wifi here

We went there to have lunch with my friend. It wasn't my first visit actual. They serve the best healthy salad you can think of. Their carrot cake is out of this world and their fresh lemonade, uhmmm! Is the best!
