We had a great meal here. The food was very good, when ordered. It arrived very fast. However, the service was poor. We had to go inside to order and then had to wait for someone to come out and take it. The girl serving us was rude and made no apologies. The king fish was really good as was the falafel wrap

In short, this is a great stop for food after strolling around in Stone Town a few hours. The salad was fresh and very good, and the staff was both quick and nice. Nice outdoor seating to watch people go past.

Very much liked the spicy coffee . You won´t regret it. The attendants are nice and generous enough to share with you the recipe!

I had breakfast with my wife here while on honeymoon, it's a nice cafe on a bustling stone stone street. A big plus is the shaded seating area and air-con inside.

Both of our breakfasts were nice, but nothing spectacular. My wife had the falafel wrap and while it was really tasty there wasn't enough falafel in it which was disappointing. I had the big breakfast and it was quite tasty. The stand out was the coffee though, it was some of the best I've had in stone town.

All in all I'd definitely recommend this place for breakfast or a quick lunch.

This is a great place to pop into for a snack. We went several times during our stay in stone town for banana pancakes and jam toast, both of which cost no more than 2 pounds.

There is a nice atmosphere and the staff are friendly. Unfortunately there is no WiFi though.
