Located in a beautiful mall of excellent classy shops. An ideal place to drop in for lunch at value prices

Serendipity is located in a pleasant little enclave, secure, attractive, decent food and quite inexpensive. We ate outside on a pleasant evening, mostly vegetarian choices, all very good. Next to Mama Mia's where an outdoor musician was performing. Service good as well.

I had a cheese and tomatoe sandwich, which was so tasty and fresh. The cappuccino was great as well. The ambience is great. Parking is sometimes a challenge. Both the inside and outside parking sometimes get so full that one has no where secure to park their cars. Otherwise, it's a cool place.

I've been to Serendipity a few times while in LIlongwe, and I find it's a good place to hang out and work. You can go for a coffee, a drink, a snack, a meal, you can stay as long as you like. It's a skyband hotspot, so if (like me) you like to bring your computer and work away from your desk or hotel room, it's a good place. In the inside area there are electrical outlets, too, so you can plug in if you need to charge your batteries. And if you hang out working so long that you get hungry and want a meal, you can have one.

I had a couple of dinners there, both vegetarian - a thai stir fry, and a vegetable curry. The curry was very tasty indeed - the Thai dish was fine, but not as good as the curry. I had breakfast there once, too (an omelet), and it was fine, though nothing unusual. Prices are quite reasonable.

The one thing you shouldn't get is their filtered coffee - I had it with breakfast, and it was terrible. Don't bother.

I also found the service a bit mixed - efficient, but they seemed to regularly forget things that were supposed to come with the dish and had to be reminded.

But I'd certainly go back, mostly because it's a comfortable place to hang out and work and pick up a good meal. It's also a fine place to eat alone, which I don't feel comfortable doing in more formal restaurants.
