Tony makes amazing desserts. I visit this place at least once a year when i travel to the Bvumba. Great service and the cakes are YUMMY.. When i visited last they had nothing savory on the menu so just be aware..

If you happen to be in the Bvumba area, and you don't go to Tony's, you have missed out on a prime slice (pun intended) of Zimbabwe's culinary expertise. Delicious cakes, and a very extensive list of teas and coffees. Tony's is great!

Thank you Taremeredzwa. I'm not sure about the "Deadly" treats...... I prefer to think of us as wicked. :-)

Away from the hustle and bustle of the City of Mutare and Zimbabwe in general, a drive up the misty road to Tony's Coffee Shop in Bvumba is the ideal treat. The homely and welcoming ambiance of the coffee shop, which also doubles as Tony's...More

This is a very small tea and coffee house, where Tony makes an unbelievable selection of cakes and gateaux. An insider tip, a must visit place for anybody who is in the Bvumba Mountains near Mutare, Zimbabwe
