I was happy with the selection of food and it was delicious. You can mix and match to your liking. A real treat to sit in the garden and have some fresh food. Very nice

Tried their Man-wich and some sort of vegetable sandwich and they're satisfying. They've got a lot of choices, but it is better to go there before lunch time when they still have enough fresh salads.

The Deli seems to have strange hours, however, closing for half days or full days when I would have loved to visit.

Had a pea, feta & tomato salad, green salad, and niçoise salad mix plate and it was delicious (although got my order slightly wrong). All the sandwiches on the other tables looked delicious and almost drew... More

We stayed in Lusaka for over a month and came here a few times to enjoy the delicious freshly made salads and sandwiches. They also do great all day breakfasts including delicious Shakshouka. The wifi can be unreliable but the great food and smoothies, milkshakes and coffees well make up for that.
