“Excellent choice and great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

Visited the Mint Lounge on our last night in Lusaka and were really spolit for choice - superb salads, sandwiches and burgers, most of which offered something a little different to the norm, to the extent that we grabbed some ideas to try out when back in the UK. One of very few places I've found anywhere with gateaux for dessert that actually taste as good as they look!

“My favorite restaurant in Lusaka!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

When I crave something healthy and also delicious, my first thought is Mint. Their juices and wonderful, salads like nowhere else in town, and if you want something less saintly, they have this, too.

“Good simple food and affordable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

I've been to Mint Lounge quite a few times now and have found it to be one of the only places in Lusaka where you can get good, simple and consistent cafe type food. The have a wide range of sandwiches, wraps, burgers, pasta, etc., as well as a good breakfast menu and a wide range of cakes and bakes. Their coffee is decent and overall the menu is well priced. Service does vary depending on if the owner is around but is always friendly. Well worth a visit.

“Great simplistic food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

Particular dishes are quite good, simple ones especially so. They don't do complicated dishes very well so stick with the regulars. On the must try list are the chicken and haloumi wrap, and the minute steak with caramelised onions! You will not be disappointed. As for the ambience, the decor is a bit confusing as there is no central theme holding it together but its casualness does pull through. The coffee is freshly brewed and definitely worth a shot for those with a more refined taste for it. The dessert on the other hand is a whole other ball game.. preferably pop over to a neighbouring joint as its a complete waste. So all in all, definitely worth a try!
