“Just opposite New Cactus Restaurant in Kiyovu, Baso Pâtissier is a cute location to catch a quick lunch and a sweet treat. Fresh pasties everyday, cakes to order and an affordable lunch menu with hot and cold sandwiches paired with a lovely garden atmosphere make the atmosphere welcoming and cozy”

“at the Kigali Public Library. A place to frequently find bloggers and businessmen alike working away with a big latte at their side. Shokola has a menu with greek and Mediterranean influence, along with a wide variety of sweet treats to keep you going. The view from atop the library makes for a scenic place to settle in”
