A beautiful spot to come and reflect. The signature ice tea was delicious. I had the spicy chicken sandwich, was really good. The chicken is diced instead of a whole piece. The brownie was soft and delicious. Very nice staff.

We were here twice when traveling in Malawi. The chicken samusa's are the best we had in Mozambique and Malawi. Their ice cream too. You can have a table at the veranda or in the garden in the shade amidst flowers and plants. A good place to chill out and to relax with a capuchino.

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

Good food and nice setting in the garden. Good value for money. Great coffee but sadly no alcoholic drinks.
