What better than a lovely light meal (Caesar salad for me and quiche for my guest, plus desserts of course) topped off with the homemade lemonade which refreshingly hit the stop.

The garden atmosphere is great for a quick outdoor meeting and the bantam hens and rabbits were a treat for the kids. Service was friendly and efficient. Bottom drawer is a must for lunch on those lovely zimbo afternoons...book to avoid disappointment!

5 stars in comparison to the rest of Harare. I've tried almost every dish in the menu except the afternoon tea and nothing has been a disappointment. The salad is always super fresh. My two favourite dishes are the mushroom pot pie and the bacon and avo.

Make sure you are not very busy or in between work as you should expect a 2 hour lunch. Great atmosphere. I love the chickens roaming!

I also love that this is one of the only restaurants in Harare with women servers which is rare in the city.

A lovely lunch, well served in a beautiful garden setting. A good range of salads, an excellent fish pie and some really good coffee. Will certainly return.

This is a beautiful place to be at. It suits everybody's needs. If you are a student or currently happen to be working, you can go and enjoy a nice meal while you work in a quite place. If you are a couple, this is a very nice cute spot to be at. If you would like to go out and catch up with friends, enjoy a nice cup of coffee to tea this is the place to be, and if you happen to be a mom and want to get out of your everyday house life, yet have the tranquility that your children will be safe and entertained the is it! It suits everyone! Plus it has a beautiful shop inside to buy home-made most Dalicious caramel bites, cookies and different kinds of souvenirs. A very elegant yet simple concept!

Really enjoyed the toasted chicken Mayo sandwich here, although it was an hour wait.
Lovely setting, management friendly, staff a little dull but great place for lunch or breakfast.
