Driving on the Great North Road towards Kabwe, you'll come to the Fig Tree Café on the left as you take a right hand bend just 7 kilometres south. Here you'll find the finest toasted cheese sandwich and coffee on the road. The helpings are generous, made from locally grown fresh produce and delicious. Run by Anton Staal and Bianca Hart, Fig Tree offers more than just a plate of food. Phone in your order and it'll be waiting on arrival! Closed all day on Sunday.
