Stopped here as I was running around town on errands and to meetings. I think there are two locations; I went to the location that is NOT near the US Embassy. I thought the food was great for what it was! I had a "southwest chicken wrap" on a REAL tortilla - a better tortilla than I can get in... More

Always a popular favourite with Peace Corps and other "young" Americans" trying to quell homesickness, it is now trendy with young middle class Malagasy trying to impress their friends. If you need a cookie, it is the place to go, but it's expensive and the quality is inconsistent.

For Antananarivo the Cookie Shop is a VIP Starbucks... and they actually started selling Starbucks coffee not long ago. If you are hungry, you can have a decent sandwich. I would say it is a little pricey for a snack (you can have a real meal for the price), but if you are stuck in between lunch and dinner when... More

With their two locations now serving Starbucks coffee, I can honestly say this place is feeling like home away from home. The location by the US embassy has English and French books to peruse and IPADs! courtesy of the American cultural center. The Antanimena location offers a fantastic brunch deal on Saturdays. If you are craving a sandwich (one of... More

Have been to the one opposite the American Embassy for hot chocolate and a cookie, both of which were lovely. Friends who go there regularly have also said that the brunch and bagels are very good as well. Would particularly recommend the espresso hot chocolate - delicious. Definitely on the pricey side for Madagascar, but worth it for an occasional... More

Have been to both shops and they are great! Nice coffee, great food, pleasant service!! They even have take away coffee, although they need to find better cups, the ones they have tend to leak. They make great smoothies and shakes and their bagel sandwiches are excellent. Love the BBQ one these days!

While in Madagascar on holiday a couple of years ago, my friend and I came across this shop. As expats living in Tanzania, we thought the food was fantastic! Great bagel sandwiches, milkshakes, and cookies (obviously). Definitely worth it if you feel like you need a bit of westernized food.

A friend and I decided to try this place out. We had breakfast (hash brown, bacon and scrambled eggs). The food was disgusting and wasn't presented well and I found it nothing special and American really ( the hash brown looks like a fried mashed potatoes, it wasn't crispy at all). I wouldn't recommend it, and wouldn't go back.

This is as close as you'll get for a Starbucks in Tana. Bagel sandwiches rock. And the milkshakes......
