Lime & Thyme coffee and home shop is another one of Chisamba’s new(ish) gems – we really are moving up in the world! Recently opened at Sunshine Seedlings, you can now sip on soup-bowl-sized cappuccinos and devour delicious, rustic-style food. Ranging from omelettes to burgers and wraps to death-by-chocolate-cake and even the exotic “Near East” feast. Often these meals are presented on a wooden board, lovingly accompanied by a sprig of fresh thyme and a micro-greens salad!
If you’re wondering the “Near East” (pictured above) consists of cream cheese, basil pesto, sundried tomatoes, nuts/seed mix, drizzled with Olive oil & topped with rocket. Served with toasted Pitta bread for dipping!
You can also get refreshing fruit drinks & juices and a lovely selection of homemade sauces – their new Sriracha hot sauce is the business!
The home section sells a wonderful range of vintage / country-style items, kitchenware, jewellery and furniture (all of which make great gifts!).
Open: Mon-Fri 7:30 – 15:30, Sun 10:00 – 15:00

Apart from our special coffee, you can also find the best of the world’s coffee machines and accessories at Marika’s
