The food was great and the lady very nice. Nice smile just like the photo. She made a home made lemonade with soda water that was very refreshing and the salad dish I had with curry was a nice little collection of salads - just the right amount for a light lunch.

Go to Hilary's for the best breakfast in Maun. Very friendly and the food is great. It was a bit fiddly to find, but was well worth the effort.

I was there for lunch, what a lovely experience! Nicely located under shady trees with a standard menu and daily specials. I had a chilled spinach & cumin soup with whole wheat bread, it was divine, so were the home made chocolate brownies. Reasonable priced & quick service. I will be back for sure and can recommend for sure. Thank... More

We enjoyed sitting outside with a good cup of coffee and a yummy breakfast. The staff was warm and friendly. Our only problem was not due to them. Our cab driver couldn't find them---they are located on a side road and Maun had removed their signs. It was the perfect place to meet up with our safari guide and a... More

Have been using Hilary's for many years and am never disappointed. There is always a daily specials board with something new to try and the menu caters for all. The home made lemonade is a must try and the home made bread is awesome. If Hilary is in work she always has time to chat to you. Worth a visit

A warm, and cozy restaurant. We had a healthy European style quick lunch menu, all very healthy and homemade. The staff was nice, and the place has a continuous flow of customers.

Hilary is the owner of this restaurant that looks like a garden cafe. It is a small and private place where Hilary meets you personally. She has a basic menue + very good changing daily dishes on a black board. WHO LIKES TO EAT HEALTHY IS JUST IN THE RIGHT SPOT HERE!

We have eaten here several times now and will be back. Lovely food, good prices, friendly staff, and not we were well shaded from the hot sun. Huge portions! Have only managed breakfast here so far but the lunch food smells wonderful. We will be bringing our groups back with us in 2017.

Good food, we ate a flaky chicken pie with sallad for lunch and a refreshing lemon drink. There is also coffee, tea and cakes available also very good.
