The Food Fundi first opened its doors five years ago as a small family-owned business in the Nelspruit CBD. Their ethos of using local Lowveld produce and making everything from scratch (but as fast as possible) has seen them grow into a vibey, day-time gourmet coffee café, now in brand new premises on the busy R40 route to Maputo and the Kruger National Park.


The Food Fundi uses Lydenburg-farmed trout in farm-fresh salads, wraps and breakfasts, cultured yoghurt from nearby Verlorenkloof in their fruit and veggie smoothies and homemade macadamia nut mayo using Lowveld macs. Barely anything is bought in pre-made to ensure simple dishes are made memorable. All-day breakfasts and free Wi-Fi make The Food Fundi a great locale to schedule all your meetings in one place.

Coffee is always made to perfection, using a special water filtration system, and only the best quality milk to ensure perfect, creamy froth. Their wine list is interesting and boutique, with a wide variety of craft beers. The Food Fundi also offer craft beer on tap, as well as Fairview wine on tap: a quirky special offering that makes wine by the glass sophisticated on the palate, yet affordable.


Their menu changes seasonally to keep costs down and to ensure maximum flavour. Chef and owner Jason Powell has made a name for himself with his hands-on approach to both service and food. Visit them at the Pick n Pay Centre, Sitrus Crescent, Nelspruit. The Food Fundi offer a professional catering service through their sister catering business, Gourmet Gurus, which already has an impressive corporate and private client base from Paris to Sabie!
