Love the breakfast there. I had the coconut bread. Lovely served with some butter. The crepes with banana and honey was awesome. A hidden gem, truly!

“Good Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

We were looking for place to eat, didn't want a full meal and stumbbled upon the Stone Town Cafe. Really enjoyed the pizza we ordered. The wait time is relatively short for Africa. Pizza and two pops cost 11000 Tsh, less than $10. The staff was helpful and nice. The restaurant was not busy and we had a great conversation with the two waiters and the other patron. Definately recommend this place. If we had longer to spend in Stone Town we would have returned.

“Quaint, cosy little place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Liked: Being small and cosy adds to the atmosphere, while we sat at the outdoor patio. Oooh... and the spiced coffee is to die for. Far better than Starbuck's! Everyone in our group agrees.

Disliked: I guess the cafe is a victim of its own success because it's always busy and patrons have to wait for a table once in a while.

“Great food, coffee, juices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

We came here upon recommendation and ended up coming twice.

Great location and all day breakfast. We came here for lunch and drinks and would recommend:

- tuna steak lunch: nice piece of tun steak with lime and rice on the side
- mango shake
- Zanzibari coffee: THE BEST coffee I had on the island. Truly spice with cardamon and cinnamon

Prices have nearly doubled since most travel guides have been published but it is still affordable and somewhat authentic.

“Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

This is my all time favorite place for avocado toast- okay, maybe it is the only place i have ever eaten avocado toast, but it is so good- I literally will travel to Zanzibar just to eat the avocado toast at Stonetown Cafe! Two thumbs up!
