“Delicious coffee and pancakes”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

We had very good coffee here, and the pancakes were also delicious. The building is beautiful and authentic and it is nice to sit at the window and watch the people passing by in the narrow street. Don't forget to buy some coffee to take home. We bought a tin of their Zanzibar Coffee blend and it is the best coffee we have ever had at home.

“Quaint and worth staying at if you are in ZNZ”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

This is an old style Zanzibar house with a great cafe on the ground floor. It is far into Stone Town and a little hard to find. The coffee they sell is very good.

“A great pitstop”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

While touring Stone Town we accidentally came across this coffee house. It looked very appealing and we decided to pop in for a break. Great atmosphere, friendly staff. Had some wonderful coffee (Espresso) and some fruit juices while watching people walk past in the street. we didn't eat anything but the cakes looked delicious. Clean restrooms.

“Quirky”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

This was recommended to us and it was lovely. The rooms were very unique and the breakfast area is right upon the roof so you get a good view of Stone Town. However ST is a maze of winding streets and it can be quite difficult to find your way back here at night, or even during the day. No cars can reach the coffee house so you can get a taxi to the market and then from there you must walk. We had the Cappacino room which was really lovely....
