Food was good and filling for the very hungry. Offered both native and continental dishes. The out door tables was quite good in the evening.

The Kubu Cafe is in the middle of Livingstone, at the mainroad, next to Shoprite. We stopped here on our way to the falls and we didn't regret. Very good breakfast and service. Capabilities to sit inside and outside. Prices are fair.
