We had a morning in arusha after our safari before we went to the airport. We really enjoyed spending a couple hours chilling and drinking coffee and using the fast wifi. Friendly and modern and clean, the coffee was 5 stars and my sister liked her smoothie. Prices were steep but for the standard was fair.

Africafe is open early in the mornings (7:30 on weekdays)! I've had several items from their menu and have enjoyed them. My favorite is the passion fruit iced tea. Much better than any I've ever had before. Wi-fi works on my phone but is not strong enough to work on my computer, and it goes out frequently.

Came here a few times with my girlfriend and family. Most times were OK except for our last time when some of the food was served cold. Also, my father only got his salad after we were all finished with our food. Manager did try to fix the problem and didn't charge us for the salad but it was still... More

When we are in town, we stop in for coffee and tea along with some of their awesome muffins! Cannot go wrong with this at tea time.

It is an easier meet up point in Arusha! Tanzania! It is simple but bit costly place! As the place receives mostly tourists and foreigners! But it is value for money and you can get the best of what you want! Go and enjoy yourself! 🍮🍮☕️☕️

Ordered a hamburger and it was just ok. The service was good, but not over the top friendly. The main issue we had was that when my husband went to the restroom, there was not hot water and no soap. His comment to me was "If I couldn't wash my hands, then probably no one else can either." Kind of... More

I have been there once in July 2016 during volunteer trip to Tanzania. A really nice place. I had a cheeseburger with fries and Americano. The coffee there is delicious! They cook the food very fast and very tasty! The burger was of average size with usual amount of fries. My bill was around 10 USD. The cafe is near... More
