The cafe looked and smelled promising, but thats where the good part ended. The latte and cappuccino we had arrived with nice art, but were like brown water under the foam. The chocolate brownie was ok, but very very sweet. Now about 3 hours later we are both quite ill, with stomach pains, etc. This was all we've had since... More

Stopped in here one morning for a bit of espresso and wifi and this cute cafe did not disappoint. They have a decent breakfast and lunch menu with a lot of options, and a TON of yummy baked goods: cookies, biscotti, croissant, and cakes galore. Grabbed a slice of their chocolate mousse cake to go and it was divine. Service... More

It's modern, clean and offers nice comfy seating plus satellite tv. The coffee is excellent as is the good on offer, good healthy stuff at very reasonable prices.... More

When I'm in Dar, icome to Kahawa café everytime I need a break from the city's hustle and bustle. It's conveniently located, there is free wifi and the seats and pretty comfy. The coffee is great.

This is located inside Shoppers and gives a Birdseye view of the store which seemed odd at first but lends to the natural light that comes through the door. They have lots of sandwiches, salads and deserts. The cake selection, in fact, is divine. So many to choose from. The teas and coffees are lovely as well. Will definitely be... More

Im a good customer of this cafe's bakery. I have to admit their cakes are pretty good. There is a wide variety of flavors and they don't disappoint. My all time favorite is mocha cake, i am not aware if any other place in Dar offers that unique flavor! Its really good, but also a bit pricey

I've been to this cafe once. The seats are comfortable (choice of sofas and tables), good place to come with your laptop. We had coffee, fruit smoothie and tried the food buffet and sandwiches. Quiet place and nice food, seemed priced appropriately. Internet a bit slow. I will go again
