Busy place which offers great coffee and nice pastries. Wifi available but one needs to pay. Coffee shop seems to be the meeting place for tourists and groups. Ask for a tour through the hotel and you can explore the roof top terrace with stunning views. Historical building with Arabic style furniture.

Was part of Stone Town tour, and we got nice knowledge from the tour guide on the history of the city. You can see a lot pictures inside from Portuguese, Omani, and English periods in Zanzibar.

Wide range of coffees and sumptuous cakes. Probably a tad expensive, but definitely worth a visit. Note that you have to pay for the internet.

Stopped here with my partner twice during my 4-day stay in Zanzibar. He loved the coffee and the treats, though be warned that they're among the most expensive in Stone Town

We were looking for a chill cafe to hang out and enjoy a good afternoon coffee. And we found it here at Zanzibar Coffee House Cafe! I love little coffee shops and this one was the best in town. Very happy we found this place! Nice relaxing environment, good coffee and pastries.

A true gem of a coffee shop, with lovely staff, extensive menu of drinks and food and sweets and... and an intricate little house where you don't know which stairs belongs to which part of the house, and which door leads where. Very charming!

We looked long and hard for a good cup of coffee and finally we were rewarded when we found this coffee house. The pastries and snacks are also delicious. We were sad we didn't discover this earlier in our trip.

Had the muesli with home-made yoghurt,fruits, nuts and dates. It was delicious, fast, clean and would go again. Not the cheapest option ($4 for muesli) but it's worth it.
