Stopped by for coffee and enjoyed some snacks. Love the fact you can easily order healthy additions like avocados. We orders grilled octopus and loved it so much, we had to order again. So fresh!!!

Ate here once for dinner and once for breakfast. Good meals, prize within a backpackers budget. They obviously don't like single people taking up a table here...really grumpy, not serviceminded staff, exept for one woman.

Hadn't had coffee for several days. It's time. And in the mood for pancakes at lunch time for some reason. Stone Town Cafe didn't disappoint. Yummy pancakes with fruit and THE MOST DELICIOUS COFFEE I HAVE EVER TASTED

Discovered this little gem whilst wandering around and have been back daily if not twice daily for their pot of coffee. Absolutely beautiful. Not to mention their avocado toast. DELICIOUS!
