We started a cultural tour from Rhotia Valley Lodge to The Rhotia Valley Coffee Corner: perfect ending of this nice walk with nice view on the valley and the Ngorongoro rim: beautiful setting! Fresh hibiscus juice, and a perfect lunch: barbecued spicy chicken with mango...salad, followed by dessertMore

Very nice views from the restaurant patio. We went there for lunch and it took a very long time before the food came on the table. Also most things we wanted to order from the menu , were not available! In fact they only had...pasta pesto or pasta bolognaise! So we took pasta bolognaise , had to wait for 1 hour before we got it. Luckely we were not sick of it!More

Not professional service: -They didn’t have 80% of the menu, and waiter every time was walking to the kitchen to ask, can they cook this dish or not. The same about juice- every time she went to check which fruit they have. -they bring me...dessert before all meals, which was weird -we waited about 1:30 min-, we were only one visitors there!!! -when in the end we got our meal- local cats came and asked for food. Waiter tried to give them food, but not helped very much. And she just let cats sit next to us. Really bad experience and spoiled evening -the food was okey.More

Stopped at the Rhotia Valley coffee shop on our way to Serengeti. Wonderful views over the valley from the patio. Easy to miss, so keep eyes open as you approach Karatu. Coffee and food were excellent. The coffee shop is run by students of the...local hotel and service industry school and supports the local Children's Home. Highly recommended!More

This was a really wonderful little cafe (which we nearly missed, as it is right at the edge of the village, and down a track). It’s great that they do so much to support the local young people. I’ve forgotten all the details, but they...have set up an orphanage, and through the cafe teach it’s young people hospitality skills - and the people serving us, had great skills. The food and drink we were served looked good enough for a London West End restaurant!! It was gorgeous. Well worth the stop for a rest, and recuperation from whatever drive you’re doing.More

I recommend this place, wonderful view, great cappuccino! Watch for the signs on the road through Karatu, because the building itself cannot be seen from the road. It is like a hidden gem you have to discover to be surprised with this amazing view. Highly...recommended!More

Best coffee I’ve come across so far in Africa. The views are stunning, perfect for bird watching. The food is so delicious, that our breakfast has just turned into brunch. I selected a long black coffee, sandwich and lemon crepe and the Fizzy Fuzz -...a delightful juice made from lemon, ginger, soda and mint which was very refreshing. Thanks to The East African Safari Touring Company for the suggestion.More

A cheeky little detour on the way to Ngorongoro Conservation Area you will find this hidden gem. Rhotia Valley Coffee Corner is decorated in a rustic decor, featuring comfortable furniture, great service, beautiful coffee and the views are incredible.

A fantastic place to stop for coffee, a snack or a meal! The panorama of the valley is breathtaking. The staff are attentive and friendly. I can't think of a nicer place to have a nice break.
