The coffees, hot choc and cakes are delicious. Homemade cakes like no others you have eaten. Tastes of coffee and hot choc to complement the cake. And then the conversation! All a perfectly sumptuous experience. Definitely worth making time to come here. Refills on your...More

The cakes made in this little home are simply magnificent. There is no cake on this planet that tastes the same. The flavours are so different and creative. Afternoon tea here is better than at Buckingham Palace. Set in the beautiful highlands of Zimbabwe. This...More

Tony's came highly recommended so we ensured that our itinerary as we drove around Zimbabwe included a midday stop at Tony's to have coffee and cakes for lunch! Avoid Mondays and Tuesdays when Tony's is closed. One of the recommendations was to have the white...More

a cozy little place on lovely grounds, very hospitable host and the most incredible cakes one will find outside of Vienna. Probably also the most expensive afternoon treat, too. But all in all a worthwhile experience

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
