Tony takes coffee and chocolate to an art form and will then sit and talk with you divulging many local secrets and not a little gossip.

Don't miss this hidden gem! The desserts are a heavenly experience! So delicious they should be outlawed because they will be the measure of all your other sweets..which will never measure up! Tony's was a highlight of my trip to Mutare.

This is a very small tea and coffee house, where Tony makes an unbelievable selection of cakes and gateaux. An insider tip, a must visit place for anybody who is in the Bvumba Mountains near Mutare, Zimbabwe
