I have been going there for sometime and the menu has not changed much. That could be a downside if you're interested in tantalizing... More

This is located inside Shoppers and gives a Birdseye view of the store which seemed odd at first but lends to the natural light that comes through the door. They have lots of sandwiches, salads and deserts. The cake selection, in fact, is divine. So many to choose from. The teas and coffees are lovely as well. Will definitely be... More

Im a good customer of this cafe's bakery. I have to admit their cakes are pretty good. There is a wide variety of flavors and they don't disappoint. My all time favorite is mocha cake, i am not aware if any other place in Dar offers that unique flavor! Its really good, but also a bit pricey

I've been to this cafe once. The seats are comfortable (choice of sofas and tables), good place to come with your laptop. We had coffee, fruit smoothie and tried the food buffet and sandwiches. Quiet place and nice food, seemed priced appropriately. Internet a bit slow. I will go again

If you need to do grocery and enjoy a cup of coffee then this is the place. It's located within the Shoppers in Masaki area. Their menu is cage style with lunch buffet at TSH15,000 per pax. I won't recommend the buffet as you can get better options from Bella Napoleons or even Marry Brown about 100 meters down the... More
