We had excellent cappuccinos from locally grown coffee at this restaurant in convivial exotic surroundings. You can also buy coffee as a momento.

We sought out this restaurant just after midday having missed lunch and found their menu limited and their cakes average. Admittedly we did not try the coffee but had yoghurt type of smoothies that were filling and tasty. Not easy to find.

We took shelter for the rain and grabbed the opportunity to have a cappuccino. The cappuccino was better than OK while the croissant and vanilla muffin could have been better. The service was not good at all - we had a trainee who did know basically nothing.

Good Coffee, Great Chocolate Cake, Nice staff. A little hard to find but worth the walk. Now all they need is free wifi.

Everything was easy around booking and arrival. An atmospheric and historic house to enter and very pleasant for nights over. The cafe on the ground floor gives you one one the best places to go for lunch and coffee in Stone Town. I'll be back!

The coffee here is wonderful, as is the atmosphere! The women working here are very friendly and make a mean iced coffee. They have wifi that is spotty, but works. There are lots of big tables that are great for working or enjoying your coffee. The food is sub-par, wouldn't recommend it.
