Kilimanjaro Cafe fits the template of hundreds of cafes all over sub-Saharan Africa: designed for travelers and expats, Kilimanjaro Cafe serves up healthy nourishing food, functions as a meeting spot, and sells fairly-traded souvenirs. It also has a book exchange and a DVD library.
Situated in a tiny shopping mall (it’s barely a mall, more like a string of stores with a big car park) in central Vilanculos, Kilimanjaro Cafe is open on weekdays from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m., on Saturdays until 4 p.m. and on Sundays until 2 p.m. The menu includes tramazzini sandwiches, plenty of good salads (we liked the summer salad, made with black olives, spring onions, and fresh basil), the burgers and the tartes caseiras (homemade pies). Come for breakfast and try the full English, or the French toast.
If cake and coffee is more your thing, there’s a tea-time menu brimming with cakes and biscotti combos. It’s worth leaving with a jar of the homemade chutney – it’s delicious.
If you’re in Vilanculos for a while, you can use the book exchange. You’ll find one of the largest selections of English-language novels in all of Mozambique – anything from T.C. Boyle to chick-lit. The DVD library is a bit redundant in this digital era, but if you’re at the mercy of slow Wi-Fi, it’s worth checking out. Next door is Papagayo souvenir shop, which stocks the usual African bangles, sarongs, and other souvenirs. Across the street is the best-stocked supermarket in Vilanculos (which isn’t saying much). It sells sunscreen, wine, cereal, chocolate, and potato chips, while the corner ice cream spot has soft-serve ice cream.
