A new addition to the tourist strip in Stone Town this venue is a combination coffee shop, tour agent and curio store. The restaurant, in which i have dined more than once offers the usual coffee shop fare with a small menu and cakes, ice creams and the like. Service was attentive and the bathrooms always clean (as was the semi open plan kitchen which one passes on the way to the bathroom). The venue has two levels where one can sit and patrons have free use of the wireless internet. everything I have eaten there thus far has been fine, though i think the menu could do with a bit of tweaking (i'm a chef by profession) and some of the portion sizes i felt were a little small.
Overall however, Hot Spot Bistro has some potential if management can keep things on track. I would more than likely return.
