A cheeky little detour on the way to Ngorongoro Conservation Area you will find this hidden gem. Rhotia Valley Coffee Corner is decorated in a rustic decor, featuring comfortable furniture, great service, beautiful coffee and the views are incredible.

My family and I stopped here for lunch. The food was excellent -- for both the vegetarians and the meat eaters in the family. And the various drinks were also wonderful -- fruit smoothies and milk shakes. It was a real treat!

What a great place on the main road from Arusha to Karatu. We had the best coffee here so far in Tanzania and the food was also delicious. Follow our travels on Facebook: 27.000 Miles Along the Sea

The best chilling spot next Karatu! The Coffee Corner is one of the latest projects realized by The Rhotia Valley Foundation. The center provides a practical traineeship for young students enrolled at the Karatu Hotel Management School and prepare them for a job in the tourism sector. We believe that this serves both the needs of tourists looking for a quick stopover between Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro as well as providing an intense learning experience for six students. Every day we serve nice Coffee & Cappuccino, Smoothies, Salad, Snacks, Hot dishes & much more! We prepare also lunch boxes. Relax and spend your coffee break enjoying the splendid view from our terrace! Free Wi-Fi!
