Everybody should have Zanzibar on their bucket list. Magical. Beautiful and breathtaking. When making your bookings please ask a lot of questions about your location. You might be disappointed if you a accept that every location has white sandy beaches. We discovered that one has to make very sure. But still magical

Wifi is paid these days (Feb 2017) 2000TEZ/30min, not too bad, but shame it's not free. They offer free coffee roasting shows, prices are ok, mid-range for the local conditions. A bonus: they have soy milk, a rare vegan treat in Tanzania.

Thuis is an excellent coffee house selling the best coffee grown in Tanzania. They also have excellent food, mainly sandwiches and other light food. In Zanzibar this always the restaurant that I would go to. The staff are very good and friendly and are very welcoming. It is a coffee house that I recommend without reservation.

This was our happy place in Stone Town! Coffee was Excellent! It was cool inside and staff was very friendly. It is located in the center of Stone Town, very convenient and well worth seeking out. We also picked up a few souvenirs here for our friends. They also offered WiFi for a fee and it was a great place... More

Great coffee, cute place, good ambience and service. Wish they had free wifi but at least it's inexpensive to buy it. Found it a bit difficult to find, it's so easy to get lost in stone town - to me at least haha. Worth a stop and cheaper to buy the beans here than other shops.

Cozy coffee place in Stone Town...Needed a while to find it but it was worth the search. Great cakes and coffees. Normal Tourist prices. If you are lucky you can see how they roast coffee!

Thank good for Zanzibar Coffee House. There are not many cafes to take refuge in during a stroll through a very hot Stonetown. The coffee (and cake) is truly excellent and the café a lovely place to sit and relax and cool down.

Close to Stone Town's major attractions and a cool refuge from the heat of the day. A good selection of coffees, very clean and welcoming. Great value particularly if you go for the filter coffee which was more than enough for the two of us.

A lovely quaint cafe with a nice range of cakes and coffees and a friendly team of staff. Located conveniently in the centre of the town so a great spot to take the weight off your feet.
