Tempting

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.

While staying in Arusha visited Africafe a few times. Nice place to sit and enjoy coffee and cake. A little pricey for Tanzania. Staff friendly and wifi reliable!

It's fun to reach a western coffee shop after the Safari. Cappuccino is not recommended because the milk outside of Dar is terrible. The food is very very good,though a little bit pricey.

Whilst in Arusha we visited Africafe more than once, to get our fill of their delicious fresh mango juice and cakes. Their cooked food is nothing particularly special, though does the job, but the best value for money definitely comes from their bakery section. The inside is very clean, modern and comfortable and comes complete with a power ballads playlist... More

This tourists cafe is justifiably popular, and you may have to squeeze up to get a seat. All the usual drinks, snacks and desserts are on offer - but the highlight in my opinion are the cheesecakes - they are as good as any I have tasted anywhere else in the world!

Don't get me wrong, a safari is a fantastic experience, but after so many days in the wild, going to such a lovely, western style coffee house with fantastic coffee is the best thing possible. It is in the center of Arusha

We just arrived in Tanzania after spending 3 months in South America. Africafe is a nice place, but I wasn't too impressed by the coffee. The coffee tasted a bit burned and too dark roasted. Maybe that is caused by the dark roasted beans that they use, but in general the taste is nowhere near as good as the Colombian... More

They have done a good job with what they have but they just need more, also the location is not so safe, I don't normally park there and walking is not the safest thing there either, watch out for those mwisis!!!
