    Wax Apple Cafe

    Handy for the airport (a 100m walk away) and with a lovely casual atmosphere, Wax Apple is a wonderful addition to Maun's eating scene. Apart from great teas and coffees, it serves tasty baguettes and wraps, with the odd local dish on the short-but-sweet menu. There's also a gift shop with some nice jewellery and paintings. Free wi-fi.

    French Connection

    Close to the airport, but on a quiet backstreet, this fine place serves up fresh tastes that might include Turkish pide, Moroccan lamb or Creole fish cakes; the meze platter is especially good. Run by a delightful French owner and driven by a far-ranging passion for new tastes, it's a lovely spot with a shady garden setting.

    Delta Deli

    Ask anyone in Maun the best place to buy meat in town for your next barbecue or camping expedition and they're likely to send you here. Part of the Riley's Garage service station set-up, it has easily the most appealing meat selection we found in Botswana – terrific steaks, marinated cuts and excellent sausages.

    Hilary’s

    This homey place offers a choice of wonderfully earthy meals, including homemade bread, homemade lemonade, filter coffee, baked potatoes, soups and sandwiches. It’s ideal for vegetarians and anyone sick of greasy sausages and soggy chips. We’re just sorry it doesn't open in the evenings.

    Sports Bar & Restaurant

    Bucking the trend by only opening for dinner, Sports Bar does the usual pasta and pizza suspects with occasional curries and some excellent Botswana-bred steaks, ribs and honey-marinated chicken. You’ll need a taxi (P60 from the city centre) or your own wheels to get here.

    Choppies

    One of the cheaper supermarkets in Maun. It has slightly less choice than some of the others and we'd buy our meat elsewhere, but you'll save quite a bit if you stock up here on cans and packet food.

    Motsana Arts Cafe

    Housed in an arts complex northeast of town on the road to Shorobe, this casual cafe serves up steaks, salads, Thai curries and good breakfasts, with real coffee and free wi-fi thrown in.

    Shop-Rite Supermarket

    Shop-Rite is astoundingly well stocked with fresh meat, fruit and vegetables, and a bakery that sells fresh bread, sandwiches and takeaway salads.

    Pizza Plus Coffee & Curry

    We suspect that this place is usually full not because of the quality of its food (which is reasonable, rather than exciting) but rather for its position facing the airport gate – people waiting for their flights don't have to go far. Then again, perhaps it's the variety on offer – there are more than 200 menu items.
