I like going to Zaka's... I feel like it's "my space", simply because I am welcomed there. This morning's coffee was simply unbelievable (because it was just dried and roasted this week). Local's and travelers find their way there. Make sure to check out the back court yard to see the coffee sun drying and the artists.

We are coffee lovers and are always in search of a good cup of coffee , we had read the reviews about this place and we knew we had to visit during our stay here and we were not disappointed.

Once in the shop you are made to feel very welcome and your eyes are darting around looking at all the fabulous local arts and crafts that are on the walls and tables. We were sitting enjoying our coffee that had our taste buds singing with delight and having a fabulous conversation with the owner who was down to earth.

One other highlight of visiting here was also the good service, which we really appreciated, as away from the resorts good service in the town is hard to find.

This place is located on the waterfront so it is easy to find and is a must while in Soufriere if you are a coffee or art lover.

Drink the coffee. Even if you don't drink caffeine, drink the coffee. Enjoy your time there. Relax. And if you just can't decide where to have lunch... head back and have lunch. Then, have some chocolate. Worth visiting more than once. I promise.

My daughter and I were sightseeing in the Soufriere area when our tour guide asked if we wanted to taste "the best" organic coffee of the island. As coffee lovers, we couldn't resist. It's a small, colorful shop that does the whole coffee bean processing (washing, drying, peeling the beans, etc...) right there. We only tried the coffe, no food or smoothies, but the coffee was amazing, the shop very cute as they sell local crafts, and there was even free wifi! What more could you ask for?

Great coffee, organic and strong. Hit the spot. Friendly and welcoming. We didn't eat here but came back every morning for coffee. Good spot on the sea front and if you fancy it, plenty of art bits to buy as a souvenir which is better than lots of the other local bits and pieces you can buy here. Highly recommend.

If you get an opportunity to visit, don't pass it up! We went on a cruise ship (Balmoral) excursion and would thoroughly recommend it.

Great art find, and very personable and friendly owner/artist! We enjoy adding to our vacation art wall - and loved the colorful unusual carved and painted masks!

This shop has a wonderful array of hand crafted masks which were about the only locally produced art I ran across in my several weeks stay on the island. Don't miss it.
