Queen of Hearts

is winning hearts in Harare

- WORDS BY TATIE HAZEL AND KAYLA SIWA

Just as the queen of hearts in a pack of cards represents beauty and an attractive woman who offers unconditio­nal love to all, the founders of Queen of Hearts Café in Zimbabwe’s capital city wanted to bring to Harare a place that feels like you are in the house of close friends surrounded by fine food and drinks. Queen of Hearts is located in Highlands an upmarket suburb of Harare.

The place is breathtaki­ngly beautiful and elegant offering great food for the foodies. There is a very wide selection of fine food to choose from. You can choose from burgers, grills, seafood, sushi various bars, cocktails, coffee, pizzeria and spicy Indian cuisine with a lively atmosphere filled with energy and the music and live bands in the background makes for a nice touch.

The place has a great ambience and atmosphere and with no doubt it’s probably the most buzzing restaurant in Harare at the moment. The place caters for the whole family as you can watch the kids play while enjoying your food, cocktail or nice cup of coffee.

The work done to the house was all done by Zimbabwean artisans. The candy-coloured kitchen is the heart of the cafe with an eclectic collection of cookware, crockery and cutlery all chosen from vintage and antique sellers.

The basis of the food at Queen of Hearts is to make everything from scratch using local or sourced ingredient­s that are fresh and seasonal, to support the person that actually grew or raised or made the ingredient as much as possible.

This cafe offers an amazing all day menu and is home to the Horsebox Gin bar as well as hosting events such as food markets, music festivals, wine tasting, beach parties and so much more exciting stuff. And that’s not all, in the gardens you can find some craft shops, hair salon, gym, yoga rooms and boutique shops. You would never run out of things to do here. It is a very modern fusion of fun.

The restaurant is open from Monday to Saturday. Telephone:​+263​77 192​9914​or​+263​77​ 994 8835 Email: horseboxba­raccs@gmail.com www.instagram.com/queenofhea­rts
