Great place to rest and have a good cup / glass of coffee

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.

Lovely spot to rest before getting back to wandering the streets of Stone Town. Friendly and attentive staff serve up excellent espresso based drinks and lovely spiced mango lassis. Good Wifi for a small fee.

I can't remember exactly which cake but it was excellent. And the barrista coffee was flawless. Spotless coffeehouse and impressive service. It can be a little hard to find in the labrynth of Stone town, but worth wandering around until you do. The interior is tasteful in the local style. There is a small guesthouse upstairs and I imagine it... More

Craving for a nice cup of coffee? Go to the Zanzibar Coffee House! The building Zanzibar Coffee House is in is very characteristic. And they have nice and clean toilets ;) The coffee is simply amazing and there is a barista on site who can grind the coffee just the way you like it. Great to take some coffee home... More
