We spent two or three hours here waiting for a pickup. The staff were fantastic. We even charged cameras & phones etc with a borrowed adaptor. Food was great. Thoroughly recommend!

As a coffee fanatic, great knowing there was a "Starbucks Africa." A modern coffee house with a local touch. Great coffee and great desserts. Yum. Love the service and the workers.

If you, like me, find yourself in pursuit of strong coffee with creamy froth in every far flung town you visit, then this cafe is the holy grail. Friendly, quick service and fast, free wifi too.
