“Lovely atmosphere and really good coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

I'm puzzled that until now no one has written a review of Msumbi Coffees. This lovely cafe is located at the Shoprite plaza, which is where most of the safaris start and the place is full of tourists. I read somewhere online about Msumbi Coffees shop at the Arusha hotel, which may be a different one.

I was a frequent visitor at Msumbi for almost a month. The coffee shop caters to mzungu, not locals (because of the prices). The prices are comparable to these in the U.S. But the atmosphere is much better, the decoration is done with good taste and follows the coffee theme - pictures, coffee classification charts, coffees from different places in Africa, antique coffee roasting machine, etc. (see images). There is free wireless internet for clients. The ladies are very friendly and speak fluent English. I just loved the place! If you happen to go there, a few doors down from Msumbi there is another place for sweat treats who had the best chocolate butter cream cake I've ever had!
