If you are tired with the locals and beach boys who become very annoying here you can relax and order in a regular way a nice coffee. Somehow overpriced!

My husband and I spent a day wandering Stone Town. On my list of places to go was this cafe. It did not disappoint. When we arrived we were ready for a rest and some refreshments. The coffee was excellent and the banana bread was...More

The rooftop terrace here is definitely worth a visit - a very relaxing place with a cool breeze and great views. The coffee was delicious, as was the tea! My only criticism would be that the cakes were very Western - I would have preferred...More

the coffee is outstanding and you can get it all kinds of ways. After the instant that is served in the hotels and rest this is great. The omelet is done the way it suppose to be done not over cooked

We had our todays lunch at the rooftop terrace of the Coffee House today. This is an absolute Must-Do, if you visit Stone Town. Great 360° views over the city and also nice food. We took Chapati wraps that were really yammi.

Not sure why people rave about this place. We came here for breakfast and had fried eggs and a crepe with scrambled eggs. The food was ok, nothing special. The prices are decent though.
