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

We have seen this place in many blogs and went there yesterday. We were expecting to sit on the terrace but they told us that it is only for the hotel guests.

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!
