A good place to rest and chill out. Soak up the atmosphere and people watch for a while. The mix of cultures you meet is amazing.

Great coffee - I have tested both espresso macchiato and ice coffee. Excellent quality! The barista - Asmah Jumah Shabani - won the first Tanzanian barista championship back in 2009. They grow their coffee in their estate "Utengule" close to Mbeya in southern Tanzania. My favorite coffee shop in Stone Town:)

Loved sitting in the afternoon watching the world walk by the doorway. The coffee is excellent, careful as they seem to change the house brew daily.

This is a great little place that is very atmospheric. I stopped to escape a sudden torrential rain shower, and enjoyed a reasonably priced spice tea in very ambient surroundings! Prices and selection of food and drinks are good, and the bathroom is clean. A nice little pitstop for a break.

The ambience is good and the staff friendly. This is a great pit stop while wandering around Stone Town. Lots of good coffee and tea choices as well as juices, crepes, wraps, salads and pastries. The food is fresh and healthy.
