The restaurant has a very good menu. I enjoyed the food that I had while I was in Botswana. It is located within the same compound at the Peermont Mondior hotel, so it was convenient for me during my stay.

I always like to grab their burgers. They make big, juicy burgers that will really fill you up. Good location too.

One of Botswana upmarket places. Excellent for business meetings and brunch with friends. If you are keen for a night out do visit it on Thursdays and fridays.

Well positioned on the East side of the city in the same premises as the Mondior Summit Hotel. Its very close proximity to the University of Botswana makes it a popular watering hole for students which often makes it noisy, Friday evenings being the worst. Serve breakfast, lunch and dinner - breakfast and lunch are quite and more relaxing. Menu... 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.
