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

A great spot for a good light lunch, coffee or cold drink. Sit under palms right in the centre of Stone Town. Good prices.

This coffee bar is situated on one of the main routes through Stone Town, and by the looks of it a popular stop for drinks on a Stone Town City Tour. We sampled the house specialty - feta cheese samoosas - not great (and overpriced). The watermelon, ginger and cucumber juice was good. Service average.

In Zanzibar the only place to drink very high quality coffee is the Zanzibar Coffee House. There are also excellent small meals available here. All the waitresses are also extremely helpful and attentive to all the customers.

We enjoyed a pleasant interlude at the Coffee House during our sightseeing. Good coffee and cake and pleasant service. Judging on the fact the tables were all busy, it's a popular spot.
