I love coming here the staff are so helpful, friendly and super accommodating. They have great opening and closing hours which you don't find very often in Harare for a garden coffee shop. I love all their flavored coffees and their cakes. I think their garden and play area for the children need working on but besides that would come... More

Hi Naz A Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We just wanted to let you know that the construction of our new kids jungle gym/Wendy House combination has already begun. When this is complete in a few weeks time (hopefully!) we will actually remove the old jungle gym units completely. Work on our garden is an ongoing project... More

The service is always quick and friendly, and the wait staff go out of their way to ensure that you are comfortable and that your food and drinks are well presented and served with a smile. Definitely worth a visit. Excellent cakes and light lunches

Tea lovers are treated to their widest dreams with tea, coffee, rooibos, a range of local and imported tea fusions. Ask waiter for cake of the day if you have a sweet tooth.

Friendly relaxed setting setting, with good food and great coffee. Play ground for the kids and wifi for adults. Good place to go when you need to step out of the office.

I can't speak too much for the food as I only had coffee and cake but it was the perfect place to meet up and chat with a friend. Nice garden seating, spread out so you have some quiet and privacy. Delicious carrot cake and great coffee.

“They serve a mean breakfast!” These were the words of a friend that persuaded me to give Vanilla Moon restaurant a try. Arriving at Vanilla Moon I was greeted by a friendly waiter who asked me where I wanted to sit in their lovely garden. As it was a warm morning I decided to sit at a table in the... More

I had the cheese and mushroom pannini with chips (fries) for $8 and a homemade lemonade for $3. The service was polite but slow. The food was fine, but not stellar - I had to add a good amount of hot sauce to my pannini, but the mushrooms and chips were both fresh, so thumbs up on those. I had... More
