I visit Dar every year for an annual trip with a group of university students from the US. When Mokka City opened it was a welcome addition to the City Center area. We visited it frequently. Last year, and even more so this year, the...More

Nice service, wifi. Very good mangopassion juice and espresso milkshake. The place could have some nice background music, it felt to sit in a big quiet cafe. Didn’t order any food.

Great hospitality staff. Very nice coffee. Good breakfast place as alternative for hotel breakfast. Not always available what is mentioned in the menu. But enough alternatives.

Very tasty milkshake! The cafe looks nice and the staff speaks proper English and is obviously trained well. A bit pricier as you'd expect from this high-end cafe. The only minor improvement possibility was that the bread for the sandwiches was rather dry.
