Small cafe/shop which sells home made icecream, pastries, soft drinks, coffee, cakes. I can't find them on the web, but it is very popular with tourists and locals here in Watamu. They do have a facebook page and I can provide a telephone number and email address should that help?

Fantastic ice cream

Decided to sample Anna's ice cream based on a tip from Watamu locals. It definitely lives up to its reputation! The gelato was delicious and rivals any high end gelato you can find in Europe. Great fresh flavours. Definitely do not leave Watamu without trying this. if the gelateria is closed... read more

Taste to believe. Italians have great ice cream and where else better to do this if not Bahati. We got a coupon for our anniversary treat and we went on to eat more and every time i just want more. We tried the Madagascar Vanilla, pistachio and cherry ice cream and for my wife who has no love for sugar... More

This place was recommended as the best gelato, but we found the staff and owner to be really rude (sampling before buying is NOT allowed and it is explained with a sour expression and a shrug). We preferred the gelato shop up the road which had really friendly, helpful staff.

It is probably the best ice cream we had while in the Coast, a nice location in Watamu managed by Italians. Very good.

Most delicious homemade Italian ice-cream! It is not a restaurant but a little pavement ice-cream parlor where espresso's and patisseries are also served. A favorite meeting place. Anna and Andrea take great pride in what they do

If you want a treat visit this place and sample the most delicious gelato. Tried a few different flavours and all great. Coffee also excellent. Not what you might expect to find in Watamu but well worth a visit.

Having vacationed in Watamu for five consecutive years - it was only last year December 2014 that we discovered this ice cream parlour. My entire family enjoyed the ice creams and the young team in our group had several other opportunities to go and treat themselves to ice cream. Visiting Watamu - and have never been to Anna & Andrea... More

We have great icecream in Vienna, mostly made by Italians. The icecream at Bahati is among the best. Peter

Per the norm, we visited almost daily while in Watamu. Each of us would order a bowl of ice cream and enjoy that while we waited for litres to be back for us to take back home. Gelato is yummy. Service staff are less than fantastic. I don't know whether that is meant to be part of the charm to... More
