This is a lovely eatery in the village market mall where you can dine in or sit on a veranda overlooking outside the mall. Their French fries are out of this world and the food comes out very fast. Ate there several times, their food is fresh, delicious and very well made and presented. Can’t wait to go back. Prices... More

Met with some colleagues here for some after work drinks and a little food. The atmosphere was nice, but the food lacked taste and did not seem to have been seasoned at all. My advice would be to find somewhere else to eat. If you want to hang out with expats then this is the place though. Would also be... More

Probably one of the best breads in town. Its a nice place to go for a coffee or lunch with friends during the weekend but not much more than that.

It is a nice place, hosting 2 seating areas inside & outside, in a Mall Called Junction, so it will be a good place if you are waiting for your wife to do some shopping, or just chillout with your children, many rest & cafes in the area.

The smaller of the two Artcaffe’s in Westgate, this little kiosk is still a great spot to sit and watch the world go by. They have a nice arrangement of seating and the food and drinks are excellent. While it is much smaller, I preferred this café to the other Artcafe restaurant as there was a bit more going on... More

There are two Artcaffe’s in the Westgate Shopping Centre – one on the 2nd floor which is a smaller kiosk style place and a big restaurant on the ground floor. The bigger store was always busy when I visited, but the staff were efficient and the store’s popularity did not detract from the experience. The store has indoor and outdoor... More

I can't find any entree that I like here, but the coffee and baked goods are great. Also, a nice atmosphere that really resembles a European cafe.

Ordered a Caesars Salad at their Westgate branch. Efficient service brought it quickly. Taste was totally off. The chicken strips had no taste at all. Many times their food disappoints.

I have been to many places around the works but this is one of the best . The pastries are amazing , the decor and the music makes you feel completely disconnected . The service is good and the waiters are well trained and spoken Keep it up
