Our all-day eatery borrows its name from the striking purple blooms that line the streets of Lusaka. Casual, elegant and vivacious in equal parts, Jacaranda serves bistro-style a-la carte meals and daily breakfast and lunch buffets. The extensive menu spans the globe, from European and American classics to authentic Indian cuisine and Zambian comfort food. Start the day with hot-off-the-griddle pancakes, waffles and made-to-order eggs; satiate mid day hunger pangs with a juicy burger; impress business colleagues over an Indian meal that’s redolent with the flavors of Old Delhi or tuck into a rustic kudu steak with a side of soft, spongy nshima; every meal here is an occasion. The restaurant also offers customized wellness, vegan and children’s menus. Jacaranda’s Sunday brunches are legendary and offer a chance to sample a smorgasbord of international flavors paired with world-class wines, while socializing with the city’s cognoscenti.
