Description: Conveniently found just off the N4 en route to the Kruger National Park and all of Mpumalanga's major tourist centres, The Food Fundi Coffee Cafe is a welcome haven in the heart of Nelspruit's bustling CBD. With the sound of fresh espresso beans being ground, the comforting scent of baking bread, and fragrant home made preserves and chutneys bubbling away in the kitchen, it's the perfect venue for your lunchtime business meeting (with free wireless Internet), or for breakfast smoothies and fluffy omelettes with friends after gym.At The Food Fundi, it's all about mouth-watering flavour, value for money, gourmet daytime meals, and all-day breakfasts. The Food Fundi is owner-run and with qualified Prue Leith chefs at it's helm.

Have been here several times whenever we are in Nelspruit we make a point of dropping making a trip specially into the CBD to have lunch here!
Have never walked away less than satisfied.

We are sorry you feel this way "magnola". We don't recall dealing with you specifically so perhaps if you provide us with more information we can adequately offer explanation for the circumstances? Which function are you referring too? With regards,The Food Fundi management and owners

“Beyond Fabulous!”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

My 2nd visit to the Food Fundi and in future I will arrange my travel plans especially to pass through Nelspruit for a bite at this delicious spot!

The "Alternative" breakfast was divine! Have also had a yummy sandwich, good coffee, friendly service. The rest of the menu (burgers, salads, wraps, lattes etc) looked so tempting I wish I was in the area longer so I could work my way through the menu. I'll be back!

“This is the real deal!”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

The food Fundi should be celebrated as one of the best eating experiences Nelspruit has to offer.

Not only have I eaten at the Food Fundi. I also arranged for them to cater for our end-of-year office party and they didn't let me down - the food was outstanding!

The owners are experienced and love what they are doing. The food is healthy and if you want something changed on the menu, they have no problem accomodating you as much as possible.

Healthy food that'll leave you feeling good and worth the money spent.
