“Coffee, Snacks & Milkshakes”
Reviewed March 22, 2012

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!

“Best coffee”
Reviewed February 13, 2012

The place to go for a good coffee! Africa does not have a starbucks on every corner,so this is well worth the drive.

“A "Proper" Coffee shop”
Reviewed November 15, 2011

Got it all. Nice location, wifi, great coffee, selected but good snacks, desserts. Inside & outside seating and maintain their standard all the time. For any traveller, business person or a local its a great place to unwind for a coffee after a hard day.

“Fast, Free WiFi, Good Service, Friendly Service”
Reviewed August 10, 2011

As far as Botswana goes the service here is off the charts! The free wifi is a real boon. Contrary to the reviewers above this is not the only place to get decent coffee +/- Free wifi in Gaborone. Hell, it's not even the only place to get decent coffee at Riverwalk mall! At the rear of the Mall is the Abyssinia Coffee House which is far quieter than the rest of the Mall. There's also Coffee and Wifi available at 'News Café' in the Village and 'Mugg and Bean' at Game City Mall
