If you enjoy coffee, Zanzibar Stone Town Cafe is the place to visit.
They also serve a great lunch (flatbread with avocado are highly recommended, so are the Zanzibar crepes with banana)
Breakfast all day, the best pizzas on the island, and lots of other good options.
The fresh juice they serve is delicious.
The cafe is set up with a lot of benches and cushions, with a good number of tables spread out around the dining room and patio.
Easy to eat alone or bring a group of friends.
We stopped by for an afternoon rest almost every day at the Stone Town Cafe.
You can see the ocean from many of the tables. There are many wonderful and interesting teas like rose, hibiscus, etc.
These aren't just herbal teas like we get in North America.
The cakes - like almond and orange, or caramel and date - were wonderful.
Very reasonable prices.
This was a relaxed and easy to find base for exploring Stone Town, Zanzibar.
Much of the accommodation in Stone Town is lost in the towns winding alleys and is often difficult to find,particularly at night with no street names or lighting!
This cafe, however , provided good quality food and accommodation at a reasonable price and as an older solo traveller I had no worries trying to find it after an evening sampling the food in the Forodhani Gardens or the Archeopelago restaurant which had a great menu with fresh fish every day.
The owner, Judy, appeared every morning for coffee;she was a wonderful source of local knowledge and always ready to advise on planning trips around the island.
The staff were equally friendly and helpful and after only the first night would always great me with a 'Good morning, Mr John'.
