Food is average but this venue offers a convenient meeting place for meeting with out of town Botswana clients. They seem to love it and the staff are friendly. It is also on the same property as the Piermont Mondior which is a big plus.

News Café provided us with a good lunch with prompt service. It seems sometimes that some of the items do not always have all the ingredients as advertised. An example is avocado. Nevertheless the lunch served was good and the ingredients fresh.More

Description
Adjacent to the Peermont Mondior hotel is the News Cafe restaurant who blends the temptation of their original menu with the latest culinary trends. Food becomes art!Everyone knows News Cafe serves a good cocktail – good enough to win awards. With a couple of offbeat additions to the cocktail menu, there’s still the iconic Daiquiri, Martini and Mojito all in some new disguises.
