Best meal we had in stone town! We were pleasantly surprised as the place does not look like anything special. We had grilled octopus and prawns as well as the seafood curry; portions were generous and excellent! 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.

Fabulous to eat a "home made" breakfast after terrible hotel breakfast bars. More fresh food than you can possibly eat, coffee aroma wakes up the senses. Stone Town Cafe's separate restaurant near town square is superb for lunch. Fresh seafood and BYOB made the dining experience special with a cool sea breeze floating thru. My family and I will return... More

Great fruit drinks. Nice fresh seafood. A treat for the tastebuds and feet that have walked along enough paths in Stone Town and seek a perch from which to enjoy the scenery in a shaded, ceiling fan cooled space.

The cafe has a selection of decent and delicious meals, the rooms are super clean and spacious with AC. The seaweed juice is a must! Best Place in Stonetown to hang out during the afternoon, also the coffee is great.
