This is a little bit hidden off a busy road but it's a little oasis in the shaded trees. There food is very affordable and good. They have a great gift shop with beaded merchandise from Maasai ladies. The restaurant is run by an NGO so it supports a good cause, helping pastoralist women.

I wanted to visit the MWEDO Fair Trade Center to buy handcrafts made by Maasai women and I was not disappointed! This Center is a non-profit organization and all proceeds go to Maasai women and girls to find education and health services! Plus the coffee was the perfect touch to a great experience!

Quiet green spot in the middle of Arusha. Big garden for children to run around and also a place to sit peacefully and get away from the traffic. Decent coffee and cakes, and an interesting Masai product shop. Found it closed Saturday afternoon and Sunday as well so didn't get to try out the food.

After a busy day in Arusha the pleasant surroundings of MWEDO made for the perfect coffee stop. The coffee was good and the chocolate cake was just right. Simple but it hit the spot. I will be certain to come back, especially when I bring my son to Arusha with me. The play equipment looked great and would keep him... More
