Great coffee place with a talented team of baristas and a wide selection of milk-alternatives (soy, coconut, etc…) Get your cup onsite or to go!

Been following this place on social media right from the time i was in india and supposed to visit zanzibar.had very high expectations but it was disappointing.the place is dark and dull.. I read on reviews that the coffee they serve is good but mine...was mediocre, ordered a mocha but i don't know what kind of coffee was actually served to me. The coffee shops by the beach are faaarrrr better i guess.. Also the seating is not comfortable at all..it just doesn't feel right..More

Nice little coffee shop just off the main street. Coffee was good, the cake was tasty and it was quiet and pleasantly cool. Prices are very reasonable, much less than the surrounding hotels. Well worth a visit.

Okay so the place looks better in the pictures. It's a bit dark and you walk further in to the place after ordering when you really wan't a place in the room where you order. (At least I want that). It would have been nice...with some light and some outdoor space as well. Anyway. The coffee tasted amazing and I don't remember what beans I got but I wanted the most flavor so it was light roasted. I also had a coconut cake which was really tasty as well. When experiencing a really nice coffee made the way they do it I would've liked a little more info on how it was made etc. Maybe some signs on what beans there are and the difference so you can read before being asked. I would have liked to be spoon-fed with info instead of having to ask everything but perhaps that's just me! Overall I am quite satisfied but at the same time I had high expectations because of the high grades. Great coffee, nice people working, place is alright!More

We ordered iced latted and were served with drinks that had bad milk. When we informed the staff they insisted that the milk was good and that they had defrosted the milk. One of us got sick right after the visit due to the spoilt...milk in the drinks. We found the staff very cold and not willing to be friendly to customers. Very disappointing after reading all the great reviews.More

One of the only two places on the island where you can find Speciality Coffee. And the only one in Stone Town. Humble people and owner. No wifi, but it invites you to lovely conversations. The roast is darker than North European roast.

Nice coffee and delicious brownie. We expected more of the comfort of the seats as it wasn't very good, but we came for good coffee and we got it. We wouldn't go here again, purely for the seating, because you want to be able to...sit well, and there are a lot of good coffee bars in Stone town. The staff is super sweet.More

I found puzzle coffee by chance and after a quick Instagram search, I had to check it out. I ordered a flat white and had a small taste of cold brew as well. The flat white was perfect and well balanced. The cold brew was...really good and smooth as well. There was just one con, I opted to pay by card and was charged in us dollars, so my flat white that was 4000 shillings which was a standard price ended up being $4 which is too much for a coffee. Definitely pop in here if you’re serious about your coffee (just opt to pay in cash with shillings) Follow me on Instagram @latte_laaitie for reviews of the best coffee spots on the block!More
