We had 3 or 4 breakfasts here on our recent trip to Arusha and each time we found the staff friendly, with good service, tasty food, in a nice and clean place & a very relaxed atmosphere. Can't comment on the hot meals as all we had was toast and muffins and fruit but the menu looked reasonably extensive and... More

Second visit in 5 years and they still have great burgers and awesome milk shakes. Pastries are also good. Varied Western menu in pleasant setting; staff speak good English and prices reasonable for the quality.

Service is nothing to rave about here. But maybe it may be because I went there in the evening and the service was tired. The food was brilliant. The burger delicious and their desserts were to die for! The coffee and teas are pretty good. I would recommend going there before 5 pm. Good place overall.

The Latte and Cappuccino needs big improvement. The barista doesn't even know how to prepare a proper cappuccino or latte macchiato. Also the taste of the coffee is quite horrible and the most bitter coffee I know in Arusha. On the other hand the food is within the best you can even get here. It's a but pricey but worth... More

This place is very good. It has amazing food. I always make it a point to eat my lunch at Africafe whenever I visit Arusha. I was there today also and I cant complain. The food is always fresh. Something I didn't find at the hotel I was staying.

Went to Africafe for a change of scenery (I work from home when not traveling) and hoping for an interesting meal..... Scenery was different, but indoors, off of major tourist road and dull. Would not have minded if the food had been good, but that it was not! Perhaps because it was a public holiday, perhaps because...the restaurant caters to... More

If you are looking for a few minutes to feel like you are home , it's a great stop in. It's frequented by both locals and tourists.

This place has really, really good milkshakes. A lot of different flavors. It is also a great place for expats to gather.

Good food but be prepared to pay with cash. Burgers are very good. Service is good. Coffees are a bit expensive.
