Tucked neatly in between a plant nursery and a garden,this place is honestly one of the cutest little escapes in Lilongwe. Coffee is great, staff are friendly and the signature Ama noodles are simply poetic!!!

Ama khofi is wonderful place to visit for coffee/ frest juice, smoothie and many more. Its super green with pleasant ambiance.The guests are a mixture between backpackers and diplomats. Unfortunately, black tea selection is very minimal. So it is indeed a coffee place.

The food is excellent and the service great. If you like spicy food, you are here at the right place. The fruit juice is fantastic. The guests are a mixture between backpackers and diplomats. Unfortunately, black tea selection is very minimal. So it is indeed a coffee place.

Order the Beef seared salad I've literally had everything on the menu. The food is really good the first two times but after having the same exact thing for a third time it all tastes the same. But I recommend everything, each thing is good except the beef toasted sandwich is flat. And the restaurant is pricey

Ama Khofi is perfect for a lunch or an afternoon break, the settings are lovely and very green, food is good and the menu offers various options for vegetarian. Drinks are also good but the best are the cakes !

Been to Ama Khofi several times. Atmosphere feels remote, next to a nursery (lots of plants). Menu is full of options for snacks and lunch. Several drink options too. Have had various items and was happy with them all (none were a "MUST go back for"). Most recently I ordered a chocolate chip cookie which had a nice taste but... More

Fantastic owners. Relaxed environment. Great for the whole family. Try their ice tea. Great for business meetings. My best place to be daytime in Lilongwe. Food is also great. My fav meal is beef and green pepper.
