I liked getting the seasonal fruit shakes. The ambience is also nice for studying. The wifi isn't super strong, but it's a good place to hang out. The food is alright but not the best value.

Koko bean is a Malawi original. The mix of Malawian food meets western cuisine makes it the perfect place for a good meal, not to mention the beautiful wild outdoor atmosphere.

They have a nice selection of sandwiches, juices, and coffee. It's a good lunch spot that's typically not crowded.

I sat here for a few hours and watched a pack of monkeys playing in the trees and on the structures nearby!

Located at Lilongwe Wildlife Centre, popular place to chill after the walking tour. Have had a burger here as well as lemonade...nothing worth ordering again. Of course, friends have had very different experiences (i.e., much better reviews). This is the nature of dining in Lilongwe -- you must be adventurous!

After trekking through the animal sanctuary, it was time for a respite. The food was delicious though the staff were not overly friendly. The price for four for lunch was about $30 US which is pricey for one pizza and two burgers in Lilongwe.
