Having just moved to Lusaka, Sunday morning brunches in London were challenged by the Deli's menu. Everything from coconut smoothies to avocado sour dough open-sandwiches were on offer and prepared from scratch in front of you. Speciality health foods seem to be prioritised here with protein products and gluten-free options available. Adjoining the Deli was a small art supply shop... More

Awesome place to stop for a bite to eat in the middle of bustling Lusaka away from the malls. The meal deal (choice of sandwich and salad) is great value for money and the coffee is fantastic!

I was happy with the selection of food and it was delicious. You can mix and match to your liking. A real treat to sit in the garden and have some fresh food. Very nice

Decent setting. Food we had was delicious. Service at counter good. Seemed to be an effort at the table though.

Tried their Man-wich and some sort of vegetable sandwich and they're satisfying. They've got a lot of choices, but it is better to go there before lunch time when they still have enough fresh salads. Most of their seats are outdoors, so if you want to hang around longer on a cold windy day, better make sure you covered to... More

I've spent the better part of several mornings working or relaxing at the Deli. Available wifi is a perk! The Deli seems to have strange hours, however, closing for half days or full days when I would have loved to visit. On several occasions I even made the trip, only to find the gate (and restaurant) closed. Be sure to... More

Love this place. It like a little garden of Eden. The food is serve pseudo buffet style, where you choose from the items on display for the day. Your meal is the brought to your table. Always a different variety of meat and a large selection of exotic Salads. What put the cherry on top is the Barista, who serves... More

Went here for lunch on a busy Monday. Great selection of salads available, and delicious looking sandwiches too although stuck to a salad plate. Had a pea, feta & tomato salad, green salad, and niçoise salad mix plate and it was delicious (although got my order slightly wrong). All the sandwiches on the other tables looked delicious and almost drew... More

We stayed in Lusaka for over a month and came here a few times to enjoy the delicious freshly made salads and sandwiches. They also do great all day breakfasts including delicious Shakshouka. The wifi can be unreliable but the great food and smoothies, milkshakes and coffees well make up for that.
