The restaurant is efficiently run with executable service standards. They will deliver the orde within the promised time duration. Quite frequently I will ask for a substitute of something in the standard menu and the manager has always obliged. They serve succulent meat / salad wraps and the taste of the Cajun cuisine is exceptional. Be prepared not to find... More

very poor coffee, greasy breakfast. Lunch food looks better. Always packed as there are very few "coffee" shops in Gaborone. Good for a meeting or catch up with a friend while doing your grocery shopping.

Im from Bots and live in Perth, Australia. And Equitorial coffee is 1 of the best even comparing internationally! The people who commented hating the coffee simply do not like it because they have not developed a taste for it. That is where you get the best latte! Here in Aussie the latte is so bitter! Its a question of... More

The coffee's good, the food perfectly fine, but nothing exciting. My only real criticism is that the service can be slow, particularly when it comes to subsequent orders like a second coffee. A good location for meetings.

Love the burgers!!! And the lemonade is gorgeous. Salad is good, but sometimes some of the meat in some salads can be a bit salty.

Yes, it is a coffee shop located at the entrance to a popular shopping center. Nothing remarkable.

Popular with ExPats located in Riverwalk Mall on the Tlokweng Road. Service was quite slow (not unusual in Gaborone). Smoothie was very fake tasting (Crusha style). I had an OK beef wrap. A little expensive for what you get. The service is a bit of a lottery depending on where you sit and if other customers get in first!
