A lovely place in Lubumbashi for Ice Cream and Coffee with Cookies. Very nice ambience and very cordial staff. Their Ice Cream variety (Crème glacée) is amazing. I have had the best Vanilla Ice Cream there ever.

I needed another place for a coffee business meeting and decided to give Brioche a go. I personally would go for latte lounge over brioche but I didn't try their ice cream or their pastries so I reserve the right to review my initial so so rating until after I go back.

I had the best experience of congo cuisine while i was there. It was good to see a modern cafe right in the middle of town and their pastries were absolutely delicious

Small and quiet. Great juice and coffee. My colleagues enjoyed their meals as well, though my colleague who had a Greek dish said it was not quite as she expected. Lovely breakfast/brunch spot.

The menu is limited, the atmosphere Spartan, but the resulting pizzas are unexpectedly good. If I'm ever in Lubumbashi again, I'll go back.

One of the ancient cafe in the town. Located in the heart of Lubumbashi town, so it is bit noisy at certain time of a day. La Brioche is one the best bakery in the town. Ambience and service are very good. Coffee and pastry are awesome and price also reasonable. If you are in town, best place to hangout... More

I have been here via Tripadvisor to try the ice cream and o yes, this is good. Very good quality. I love my pistachio and came back twice this week. I also tried the kitchen. Its quality and portions are very good, the chips weren't that good, some oily and some still uncooked inside, but maybe that's a Congo "thing"... More

I only ordered the ice cream here, but I was impressed by the selection and I highly recommend the pistachio ice cream. The restaurant was very clean and modern. The wait staff were not the best, but I'm used to North American standards. All in all, I was quite impressed.

Thank Jenna S
