Located just near the main clock tower in the centre of town, this upbeat, modern cafe is a hit with locals and tourists alike. Great coffee, food and atmosphere as well as free wifi.

We had a morning in arusha after our safari before we went to the airport. We really enjoyed spending a couple hours chilling and drinking coffee and using the fast wifi. Friendly and modern and clean, the coffee was 5 stars and my sister liked her smoothie. Prices were steep but for the standard was fair.

Africafe is open early in the mornings (7:30 on weekdays)! I've had several items from their menu and have enjoyed them. My favorite is the passion fruit iced tea. Much better than any I've ever had before. Wi-fi works on my phone but is not strong enough to work on my computer, and it goes out frequently.

It is an easier meet up point in Arusha! Tanzania! It is simple but bit costly place! As the place receives mostly tourists and foreigners! But it is value for money and you can get the best of what you want! Go and enjoy yourself! 🍮🍮☕️☕️
