What a treat...lives up to its reputation..I have traveled extensively and no where serves a hot chocolate like Tony. I had 2 servings of the hot chocolate and ginger ice cream. The cakes are intense, not for the light hearted...Tony is a wonderful host. I...More

This is a very small tea and coffee house, where Tony makes an unbelievable selection of cakes and gateaux. An insider tip, a must visit place for anybody who is in the Bvumba Mountains near Mutare, Zimbabwe
