Great for a coffee break

Cozy cafe with tasty drinks and food. Coffee and iced coffee were very good and we went back the next day to eat the veggie wrap a second time - it was delicious and plenty for two to share. The samosas were good but pricey for what it was. It's a touristy place with touristy prices but it was... read more

This is the perfect spot for a coffee break if you wandering around Stonetown. Definitely stock up on Tanzanian coffee that you won't readily find at home.

I loved the ambiance, coffee, variety of desserts and it seems to be the only place you can get my favourite baked potatoes in Zanzibar. A fun place for lunch.

All good. We stopped for lunch, and enjoyed it. Good value and good food, staff attentive, like they had shares in the company.

This little cafe is pretty well hidden and it takes a good bit of wandering around Stone Town to find it. Nonetheless it's worth a trip as the coffee is great and the chocolate cake is extremely indulgent but delicious. The decor is lovely and quite traditional. You have to buy wifi tokens which is a bit stingy but otherwise... More

Friendly staff and great coffee. While drinking my coffee I watched the brilliantly clothed people of Stone Town walk by. A wonderful experience.

We are currently in Zanzibar and today we had a pit stop at this beautiful place. The building is located in the historic quarter not far from the market. It has been tastefully renovated and it is a very cozy place to rest your feet while exploring Stone Town. Unfortunately they do not know how to make coffee. Order a... More
