“Western food done well”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014

When all you want is something that reminds you of home, come here for a burger and milkshake and you'll feel like you've died and gone to heaven. Africafe is like an oasis. After I was mugged I came to the sweet aircon of Africafe and had a nice big milkshake and all my troubles faded away. The bathrooms are also probably the best you'll find in all of Tanzania. Not a joke. Enjoy this taste of home!

“Spot on.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

Ideal location..not far from our hotel. Great coffee and a very clean and tidy establishment. Perfect haven to slip into to escape the numerous hawker's. Staff at the cafe were very attentive and pleasant.

“Lovely cafe..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2013

The service may be a bit slow and the place may be packed, especially during lunch, but the waiting is worth it.
The food is nice and fresh and the coffee is just too, too nice... even for none coffee lovers.
Beats Starbucks by far...
