Exhausting and expensive experience. The cakes are fine, coffee is ok, experience is horrible. Prices are outrageous and not worth it. Do yourself a favour and avoid.

Tony's cakes are of wide renown in Zimbabwe and whilst the menu is very extravagant and the flavours and ingredients imaginative, be prepared for inexcusable prices and a tedious performance where he or one of the staff explains every single item on the menu in...exhausting detail (it would be wonderful to be able to read the menu for yourself and ask for clarity if something was confusing). The ambience of the place also leaves a lot to be desired. For the price of the boujee menu items one would hope for an equally posh ambience. That being said the iced coffee is exceptional and depending which cake you order you will be in for a treat.More

Have visited this coffee shop a number of times..it's simply irresistible. Excellent quality, environment and standard! I would say palace standards & The chat if visitors give the host a minute, is absolutely worth the stop. Do not be cruel to yourself by denying yourself...this experience. A stop at Tony's Coffee and Cake place is a MUST if visiting VumbaMore

Don’t hesitate visiting this cute small coffee shop in Vumba. The prices are stiff but the cakes are very filling. 2-3 people could share a cake. We highly recommend the cheese cake. That bottomless coffee is also a bonus. The view of the Bvumba Mountain...near the shop is also amazing. Follow @traveltribezw on any platform.More

Good morning and thankyou for stopping by and enjoying our fare. We keep the shop to a manageable size, so as to ensure both our quality and service remain the same. Given the times we live in, I do not want to accommodate too many...More

I've always wanted to visit after hearing lovely reviews and it definitely lived up to my expectations! Tony is very friendly and welcoming. We felt so at home and he explained everything on the menu in a fun and exciting way! The waiters were friendly...and very helpful and we loved the cats too. It definitely cheered us up, as it was a stormy day. I’ll definitely be visiting here the next time I come to the Vumba.More

We went early before it got busy, Tony is such an entertainer he was jolly and took time to explain the menu to us amid a few jokes. I ordered the chocolate whisky cake and I really loved how chocolaty it was . The cheesecake...was also good as well as the gateau with pears . It was a lovely experience .More

I'd say this is the only place that catered for my unruly dietary requirements, I mean Tony you are a star. I dont take cow milk nor eggs and guess who had a amazing latte and cake too, all lactose free. Will definitely visit again...for the guilt free yumminess. I really was amazed because you hardly find a place where you can enjoy dessert in Zim when you dont take eggs and milk.More

Thankyou for your review. We do have 2 Vegan options with our cakes, which are also Gluten free... But I don't serve a lactose free latte, so I'm a little confused there. We have served a coconut cream topped coffee, but not a latte.

Unique and lovely place, with a wao effect upon arrival that you will never forget and goes on when you get the endless list of beverages and your huge slice of cake. Tony is also thinking of a vegan raw cake: what else?!?
