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.

Portions were very generous, service was prompt and food was delivered in a very reasonable time. Great variety of items, western style, and taste was delicious.

I had lunch here 3 days ago, not sure what all the fuss is about - the food is seriously average. I only stopped by for a small falafel wrap, it was quite dry and completely overpowered by a sickly sweet chilli sauce along one side. The salad on the side was just bare, undressed lettuce leaves... The juice was... More

Best meal we had in stone town! We were pleasantly surprised as the place does not look like anything special.

Our servers were attentive and so sweet even though there was a large (loud and demanding) party of more than 15 people right... More

We had two delicious Swahili coffees with spices!! No comments!! The place is just perfect for coffee, breakfast or lunch. Highly recommended before or after your strolling in mysterious Stone Town narrow streets.

The service here was great. They took our family photo as if they had never seen a camera. They all had smiles and were very quick. This place is a great escape from the hot streets and right near some of the more touristy shops. The food was very nice and well priced. A good escape from shopping.

This is a family favorite for us. We love the avocado toast and the spice tea. Friendly and helpful service and a convenient location. We always make it a point to stop at the Stonetown Cafe whenever we are passing through.
