Went for just coffee and some snacks chips and samosa. Good varied menu with plenty of options of Tanzanian and western food. Tasty and good value. Nice place to relax and chill in an otherwise quite busy city.

A perfect place to meet up with European friends. It has fantastic coffee, delicious sandwiches, great chips, burgers, milk shakes and cakes. All freshly cooked. It has a friendly atmosphere, and pleasant staff. But if you want a typical African experience this is not the place to go, as its full of "Muzungus". This could be a positive or a... More

If you are looking for a international cafe and restaurant, try Africafe! The food is good, price and service are ok, juices are fresh and tasty. It's a safe place to eat, if your not so much into local food.

Although it was bustling, we were treated to prompt service and good coffee and the children were thrilled to find a comprehensive kids menu. Overall, a great place if your looking for a good coffee and... More

Passed by there with my husband for hot chocolates and we've been going there time and again.. Perfect cakes too and even got my sister's black forest birthday cake there and it was worth it for sure..muffins.. Carrot cake.. Assorted breads.. Can't keep away from those delicious and creamy creations from their bakery.

I was in the Arusha area on business. I needed somewhere to pass an afternoon, enjoy some coffee and feel relaxed. Africafe allowed me to do everything I needed without any sense of pressure to move on. A pleasant place for a lone traveller. The cafe was busy when I first arrived - the end of the lunch period. The... More

Good universal option, no alcohol though. Service could smile a bit more but is good. Very good coffee for the morning with several pastries
