Great service and good food.

Africafe has great coffee and great biriyani. Their avocado burgers are always a favorite of mine too. The serves is one of the best too. I love to go there on evenings as there is more of a local middle-class professional crowd. lunch hours is mostly tourists and often crowed. Also i love... read more

Nice food, good coffee and a place to hang out in the middle of Arusha (close to the clock tower). Will return if coming to Arusha

Africafe has great coffee. Its location in middle of Arusha makes it convenient for a quick coffee date. Sometimes it gets quite congested. Great food too.

I am a local in Arusha. The Africafe is a great place for any meal, it's menu reminds me a lot of American coffee houses. The main downside is their parking, which isn't an issue if you arrive at 4am in the morning or if you are just visiting. Otherwise it is a great choice for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.... More

It's amazing that it's so hard to find a good espresso in Tanzania, since they grow such delicious coffee here. I finally found it on my last day in country, at Africacafe. Yes, it's expensive by TZ standards. The Zanzibar Macchiato, at 5,500 Tsh, was about the most expensive drink on the menu & nearly 10 times what you'd pay... More

Had dinner here twice in two nights since it was near my hotel and I was on business. Friendly staff, the coffee and cakes (cheesecake, marble cake, etc.) looked really good but I can't say I had them. The food I had (beef stir fry, salad, and a chicken breast dish) was OK to good but not fantastic.

Heard a lot about Africafe and gave it a try. They actually serve very good food and also you have to enjoy the coffee there. Good place to kill some time with someone. You will find it almost full in season. Delicious and hygienic.
