This café has a very good selection of food and drinks. We tried their cake and ice cream. Both was very good. Coffee was also very tasty. It's a touristy place. Also the prices are definitely not the cheapest. But I enjoyed visiting Africafe.

Good coffee and free WiFi in the center of Arusha. Many "fly catchers" out front trying to sell you a safari if you are Mazungu, but nice once you are inside.
