If breakfast really is the most important meal of the day then you need to know you're making a 'delicious choice.' From bowls of granola to hangover fry ups, we've rounded up the best places to head to in Lusaka for that breakfast of champions.
Southern Sun Ridgeway Lusaka
Expect a fantastic buffet style feast offering everything a breakfast should. Variety and freshness is guaranteed. Make sure you leave room for the freshly baked pastries and delicious smoked salmon. The omelettes made to order with all the fillings you could dream of are particularly 'eggcellent.'
Taste by Rootz
If the setting for you is as important as the food, this trendy tearoom will impress. So too, will their loose leaf tea selection (assuming you're a tea drinker of course.) The breakfast menu, all of which is made with the freshest Zambian produce, is both yummy and highly Instagrammable. We love the yogurt, granola and fruit parfait. If you're feeling extra naughty go for the Nutella and banana french toast, topped with Greek yogurt and honey. Yum.
Zambean Coffee Co.
Rise and shine for this delightful coffee shop, that gives breakfast the respect it deserves. It also serves up coffee that will impress the caffeinated community. The menu, which guarantees quality and freshness, might be small but it is certainly both original and delicious. If you're a snap-happy diner you'll find the presentation insta-good. If the homemade granola with yoghurt and berry coulis doesn't leave you feeling sunny, we are certain a smooth cappuccino alongside a crispy fresh breakfast croissant, filled with fluffy eggs, crispy bacon and fried tomato will. If you're a Vegan you can rejoice in the fact that Zambean caters for you too. Check out their recently introduced breakfast feast of brown toast, caramelized onions, baked beans, mushrooms and fried tomato all topped with creamy avocado.
Breakfast here is the business, just don't expect bacon (as 3 Trees is Halaal. The service is prompt (refreshing for Zambia) and delivered with a smile. The cappuccinos are pretty tasty too and if you're unsure what to order, check out the eggs Benedict on a bed of herbed mushroom ragout.
Boasting the best barista in Lusaka, breakfast at the Deli (once you have found parking), is always a happy affair. Find all your standard breakfast items like pancakes, pastries and french toast, alongside more exotic choices like coconut smoothies and avocado sour dough open-sandwiches. Everything is prepared from scratch in front of you. You will also find speciality health foods with protein products and gluten-free options available.
A stylish place to enjoy breakfast with a pleasant outdoor seating area. Whether you are a health nut, or after something more decadent this menu should have you covered. Switch out your morning coffee for a freshly made juice that'll taste way better than whatever you’ve been making in that NutriBullet. The only downer is that you'll most likely find the service on the slow side.
