Tony makes amazing desserts. I visit this place at least once a year when i travel to the Bvumba. Great service and the cakes are YUMMY.. When i visited last they had nothing savory on the menu so just be aware..

It's not an experiment but an experience you have to try atleast once if in this location or pass by. I would recommend the drive is worth it and the cakes and tea selection is worth the wait. Personalised service with an introduction from Tony himself to recommendations; a down to earth man who is genuine in action and deeds.... More

A trip to Tony's is essential to any trip to the Vumba, but be prepared, it's not cheap! There is a choice of incredible cakes, heavenly hot chocolate, boozy coffees and exotic teas, all set in Tony's quaint little cottage; one feels as if they are a guest in his home rather than a paying customer. I highly recommend the... More

If you happen to be in the Bvumba area, and you don't go to Tony's, you have missed out on a prime slice (pun intended) of Zimbabwe's culinary expertise. Delicious cakes, and a very extensive list of teas and coffees. Tony's is great!

Away from the hustle and bustle of the City of Mutare and Zimbabwe in general, a drive up the misty road to Tony's Coffee Shop in Bvumba is the ideal treat. The homely and welcoming ambiance of the coffee shop, which also doubles as Tony's home, means you have a regal feel as this is more of Tony hosting you... More
