excellent seafront cafe in the park

Good food, good coffee with friendly service and a nice ocean breeze. Evenings you can sit here with your food from the night food market if you buy a drink. A popular cafe.

It's not expensive tho its open. At night alot of people around and enjoy the view of Forodan Gardens. Ideal for snacks or quick coffee. Recommend!

A must for the view, the food, the juice, the coffee. Something absolutely worth to be and not overpriced. We stop at every visit of Stone Town and never regret.

We just wanted a quick snack and coffee, and had been recommended to go to Cafe Foro. It was really reasonably priced and the food was ok. For this, we would recommend Cafe Foro.

Set in the Forodhani gardens this very friendly coffee shop is a relaxing place to watch the world go by. The coffee's are very good and the food on offer is well prepared and good value. Only Burgers and snacks are offered but the portions are gererous and vewry filling.

We really struggled to find a place that sold inexpensive but good food, until we found Cafe Foro. Great view and really good burgers
