Loved this place, had the most awesome spicy coffee that felt like a blend of chai and coffee. Delightful banana cake.

We loved the Zanzibar Coffee House Cafe! Although there are scores of cafes and eateries in Stonetown, we kept coming back to this cafe again and again. Just nothing could beat the quality of food, the ambience and the amazing service. The menu was varied,...More
