It was a nice place and the drinks were nice but very pricey compared to other locations. We had wanted to take our drinks on the roof terrace but were not allowed to; I was allowed up there later to take photos of Stone Town.

Relax after a day of exploring Stonetown, with a "Lassie" , coffee, variety of teas or just a cold drink in this great local coffee shop. Simple, yet clean and a pleasurable experience. Staff are friendly, service is good and the variety of pastries are great. Definitely a place I would recommend for a visit.

Lacklustre service to start + I love a good chocolate cake and am not the sort to leave food (ever!) but the cake was awful - coffee ok but not the best in Stone town.

Deep in the heart of Stonetown, not far from the Darajani market is this gem....its a little place that goes in deep and serves excellent coffee, tea and other drinks as well as assorted sweets. This is as close as it gets to the best coffee house.....the down side, if there is one, at least for people on a fixed budget is pricing..which is on the high side....not by north american standards, but for here...there are other options that come close and are less expensive...however I would have to rate the ZCH as the best in town.

Fantastic coffee for the caffeine starved. Great food and cakes and lovely staff highly recommend. We visited a few times both for coffee and cake and for lunch always a pleasure.
