How about a visit to Jahazi Coffee House in Mombasa while on your vacation in Kenya? Looking for patriots location in mombasa? here we go.
When you exit Fort Jesus, if you walk straight north you will be on Ndia Kuu Road.
This is the start of the Old Town Walking Tour and you will immediately see curio shops, antiques dealers, etc.
About 250 meters up and on your left is the Jahazi Coffee Shop.
If you look at a Google Map of Mombasa you will see this place marked directly on the map. And they have a website, too.
This is and old-school coffee house: lattice windows with lazy ceiling fans and no air con.
The décor is a cozy mix of 19th century Arabic-Portuguese.
Its clean and the staff is friendly and they have a full menu for food but I was only looking for cup of joe – and that they have: espresso, Turkish, Americano and something called Swahili Coffee with traditional spices.
I normally dislike “flavored” coffees but. what the heck, I tried the Swahili Coffee. And I was very happy with that: strong black coffee with a nice accent of local spices.
I hung out for a bit, reviewed my travel plans, chatted with the staff and was on my way.
If you see Fort Jesus first thing in the morning like I did, Jahazi Coffee shop makes for an excellent late morning rest stop. And based on what I saw, I would definitely try a meal there.
