Thanks for sending us the review! The Coffee House may be a tad 'touristy' because tourists most of all need a coffee break! Karibu tena! Ahsante sana, Tia More

Hot and iced coffee and rich chocolate cakes in a quiet, colonial and cool coffee house. Obviously not targeting the locals. The cakes are all sublime albeit a bit expensive ...

We had two of the best coffees we have ever drunk. Everything re tried was delicious: Marrocino, spiced coffee, Samosas and homemade mango chutney, coconut and lime lassi. All served by lovely smiley ladies.

I spent nearly every afternoon sipping on amazing and fresh coffee from Zanzibar Coffee House. The women who work there, including the welcoming manager Tia, were fun, attentive, and made my experience memorable. I also was lucky enough to be around for a coffee roasting session. I recommend anyone wandering the streets of Stonetown to stop by and enjoy the... More

A great place to unwind, relax, and enjoy a welcome coffee. The food is simple and incredibly tasty. This place is worth tracking through the alleyways of Stone Town - well worth it!

Although it took us quite some time to find this coffee house, we were very happy when we did. The atmosphere was great. There was cheap wifi and coffee and food was delicious. We were disappointed to find out that the rooftop is for guests only.

Everything, starting from decorative eye-catcher, the lovely and welcoming ladies, to the great beverage and snack selection; this place is a must for Stone Town visitors. The coffee is super, grown on their own farm and roasted by themselves. There is also a roasting show and presentation about how coffee is being grown and processed. Very informative and interesting, plus... More
