I really enjoyed the knowledge of the Brazilian owner who added to my visit. While not the best coffee of my life still very enjoyable...along with the lemon cake. It is definitely worth a visit while in Stone Town.

the coffee was great and so was the service. The interior decor matches its name and is a must-visit for those that appreciate coffee, design and art.
