Went here for breakfast on a Sunday since most places are closed. 10,000tsh for an egg, four pieces of generic white bread, and a lone sausage. No fruit? Really poor value, better to go to a local guesthouse and get this and more for 5,000tsh. Service was good and a nice location. Maybe it would be a good spot to... More

I spend half of my volunteering time in Arusha at this cafe, mostly because of their attached internet area. They have wifi, too, free with the meal or for a small fee. You can watch the life going on through the big windows or you can even sit outside and get friendly with locals. Nice family staff, nice coffee, nice... More

Excellent service with a great ambiance. I lived in Arusha from 2004-2006, and have returned every 2 years sinve then. I make bee-line for The Patisserie, as I have always known it as, but it has perhaps gone a little more 'up-market' since it was known as that. Still a great place, in fact, even better than it was. If... More

Friendly staff, ready internet, lots of people drinking lattes and checking their email. My food was only so-so, but it was a convenient location and a happening place.
