After seeing the rating of 4 and a half on Tripadvisor and then seeing the place for myself, I was at a loss to determine what could possibly get the rating of this place so high.

Stone Town cafe is great - it's conveniently located in Shangani, near the Post Office and wonderful to just dip into for a drink or a bite to eat. The food is good, the cost is good and the coffees are great.

My favourite of all the eateries I visited. The balsamic chicken with vegetable couscous was perfect. Will go again next time I'm in Zanzibar.

Lots of stairs to the rooms which were clean and comfortable. Not ideal for very early morning flights. Pleasant staff organised a packed breakfast (Coconut bread) due to our early start.

Handy place for lunch if you are shopping. Good fish for lunch, and popular with tourists and local expats.

The food on the island is not great. I think the beat thing to do is not to waste your money on expensive stuff, which is why I loved this café. Good food at a reasonable price.
