“Keeps getting better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Cafe Sol is fun, beautiful, and has great food. It used to be a weekly favorite for any meal of the day, and I hear now they will soon have ice cream sundaes and pizza. Unfortunately it can take more than an hour to have one of the staff come back to the table, and I've waiting 40+ minutes just to get a check. 3 out of the last 4 times I visited I had to go inside to pay because I just don't always feel like spending my *entire* morning there. The wait-staff are friendly and superb, but they just need to circulate a lot more often (or at least walk to the door and look around to see if anyone is trying to get their attention)

“Pleasant with good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

I had lunch in the enjoyable outdoor patio area. The service was good, the menu was easy to read, and the food was excellent. The main road nearby is under construction making getting to it difficult, but still worth it.

“Try the Turbo Bagel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

This is a great place to spend an afternoon with a good cup of coffee, roasted and grounded right there. If you come during roasting process, you can smell the coffee miles away.
They have a great sandwich "Turbo Bagel" that is really good! I've never found that in US!
Good thing is that you can buy frozen bagels and take them home and have an american breakfast next day.

“Nice place for a coffee.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

As someone else said, good coffee but limited menu. Sanfwiches are good, but they don't always have the bread you ask for. It's a nice place for a coffee or a milk shake and to hang out with friends. A lot of people go for coffee and use the wi-fi connection (wich you can't get everywhere). Service is ok as it is everywhere in Maputo. I like it there.

“Great coffee”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

Nice place to meet up for coffee and snacks. They make their own coffee which is beautiful and so convenient to pick up a few packs after catching up with friends!
