After reading reviews about the place, I was eager to partake of the "oasis", and it did not disappoint. I visited with my one year old daughter and my husband - the staff could not have been friendlier or more accommodating. They sat us in a 270 bench so my daughter was contained, and fed her bananas and grapes (which... More

Great coffee grown and roasted in Tanzania. Very reasonable prices, and you are able to buy whole beans or grounds to bring home. Definitely try the spiced coffee!

It's hidden away in a small street near the slave market but is surprisingly spacious and cool inside. The coffee is local and served strong but not bitter and there are an array of homemade cakes on offer too.

The place is located near our hotel so decided to stop by for a drink and food. The prices are a little steep compared to other places we have been in Stone Town, also they charge for wifi which caught me off guard.

The best coffee in StoneTown. Nice interior, western coffee with an Zanzibar twist. But the chocolate cake can be better, too dry in my opinion. If the service is more with a smile it's gonna be a great place to sit. No terrace.

Very delicious Zanzibari spiced coffee, they put all kind of spices in the coffee and it is amazing. Good place if you want to buy some good coffee beans and take it back home, it would be a very special gift.

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
