We only went for a late morning snack when we first arrived, it was easy to find and pleasant staff - we loved the coffee in their unique pots and we had heavenly pancakes with banana :) The avocado toast was also delicious.

The location is right in the middle of stone town. It's easy to walk to everything. The room was spacious with zanzibari theme furnitures. Our room had a balcony that look over the main street. The staff were friendly and helpful, they remember my husband's name and smile everytime we saw them. Breakfast option were fairly limited but the food... More

This lovely little B&B is set right in the middle of Stone Town. From here you can walk to any part of town or just explore the labyrinth of streets that make up Stone Town. We had to leave the hotel very early in the morning and Joy organised a take away breakfast for us the evening before. The staff... More

We stayed at Stone Town Cafe for two nights and was very pleasently surprised. The rooms are big, clean and nice, with AC and the bathroom is big with a huge shower. The breakfast is also much better than most other comprable places in Zanzibar and the service is good. In addition the location is great, very close to the... More

Loved the spice coffee, avocado toasts, avocado salad, pizza is also tasty. Be however cautious with burgers, i got myself chicken burger for take away and it turned out the burger... More

The room was beautiful, spacious, and impeccable. It had a/c, a television, wifi, hot water, and a beautifully hand-carved Zanzibari bed and sofa. It exceeded our expectations. Their breakfast is an appreciated deviation from a typical Zanzibar guest house breakfast of a Spanish omelet, toast, and instant coffee. They had French Press coffee and an expansive breakfast menu with options... More

Stone Town Café is not luxurious but who needs that when you are smack in the middle of such an interesting place. The location is just blocks from most everything you'd want to do in Stone Town. The room was somewhat sparse but still had Zanzibar charm -- and air conditioning. For breakfast you choose from the menu at the... More

I visit this for a long breakfast and coffee - and to write- every time I visit Stone Town. In a place that is rapidly developing, and where the atmosphere is changing as traders become increasingly ruthless as the economy grows exponentially, this spot remains a very special spot. Simple, uncluttered and charming the fresh food is wonderful, and the... More

It's not that cheap at $80 a night but the location and quality of the rooms probably make it worth it. I'd recommend it. No complaints at all and they accommodated our midnight arrival nicely. We ate at the restaurant a few times and the food was very tasty.
