For an authentic Swahili atmosphere and coffee (or tea)/ snacks, this is a great place to go. New local management in the last couple of years has improved their services and offerings. A unique and special place to hang out after seeing Fort Jesus or...More

Jahazi Coffee House is an excellent private meeting point for Coffee lovers out to experience this centuries-old coastal pastime. Great for authentic Swahili beverages and light snacks, served in the real Swahili set-up.

Jihazi offers delicious food in a comfortable and clean and environment. The decor is warm and inviting. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the mango smoothies are just amazing! A wonderful "Swahili" experience and can't wait to go back again.

Love hanging out in Jahazi for some samosas, chai, and/or juice! Very welcoming and laid back. Located in old town, Jahazi is a great reprieve from the busy Mombasa streets with fresh juice!

Excellent , cosy,relaxed atmosphere. Typical Swahili environment. The food is great and quite cheap. Unfortunately no alcohol is served here except for refreshments. This coffee house is very unique in Mombasa and has a friendly and helpful service. We loved it.

If you want to enjoy swahili food and drinks just the way the Swahili would do, then there is no better place to be than Jahazi! They have a unique set-up that truly reflects the Swahili culture- the seating arrangement and ambiance!
