This café caters for those who are hungry and not fussy. It is clean and attractively priced but not for the discriminating patron.

A once great healthy cafe, now just pumps out drab fast food. Fresh Cafe used to be a real hidden gem of Gaborone, with fresh salads, quiches, open sandwiches and hot meals, with good coffee and juices, and a range of tempting cakes and other...More

It is just ok. Nothing to write home about, but friendly staff though. Nice smoothies, but they should work on consistency. Big bits of ginger in smoothie takes away from the experience a little bit.

Great, imaginative salads. Just finished the Middle Eastern Salad. Monday Greens - chopping the salad - over one third discount on salads. Service is good and the internet is fast, convenient but not quite downtown so good parking. One of a kind in Botswana.

I ate almost every lunch here during my month in Gabs. Fresh, healthy yummy food, great service, and the best real coffee. I highly recommend the open faced sandwiches, especially the butternut squash! This is the restaurant I miss when I think about Gabs!

Tucked away in an unsuspecting location this is an unhurried place. Meaning, no one rushes you. It can get a bit smoky inside because of poor ventilation. Otherwise it is fine.
