Really loved the atmosphere and the service. It's a cool Cafe, the food is affordable and tasty. Wifi works perfectly so it's good for working. The location is quite central so easy to access They have to reduce waiting time between ordering and serving, although I didnt personally experience this people i stayed with did.

probably the best place in Arusha to go for a momemnt to relax. we visited it twice once for lunch and once for afternoon coffee. top class fresh juice, nice cakes and coffee and also very tasty food. selection of different kinds of drinks, food (main course, soup....), and desserts is great for such a small place. prices are ok. highly recommend visiting Kitamu either for coffee or food

One night stay in Arusha after Safari, stayed at Four points Sheraton/Marriott in town. Recommendation by front desk when we asked for easily walkable place with local African food. Quick walk from hotel. Clean friendly place with excellent wifi. Very surprised by extensive food menu with many "local" African choices, plus others as well. Food was WONDERFUL, excellent portions and beautifully presented. I ate a local African meat dish and my wife had a curry dish. Each dish was between $5 and $7, and a 1 liter bottle of water was just over $1. My total bill, charged to Visa card for both dinners, bottled H2O, and a 20% tip was $18. So many choices on the menu....we would be back for lunch and dinner the next day had we stayed longer.

We were so impressed with its menu. It is hard to believe how such a small cafe is able to offer so many different items. The place is indeed cozy and cute, with lovely service (a bit slow but still wonderful). We ordered grilled fish and thai chicken, both are delicious. We were a bit disappointed with the desserts we ordered (banana split sundae and ice cream sandwich). The ice cream is not of the best quality ice cream sadly. We will definitely return though and try other items.

We spent a lovely moment at the Kitamu Coffee ! The service was perfect and we enjoyed samosas and typical tanzanian dishes (with veggie food!!). This great discoveries were amazing and so delicious ! Don't hesitate to try Zanzibar Coffee (spicy coffee so gooood). Thanks again for the taxi order and I hope we will come back one day !

Great coffee and food. This is the only place in Arusha that I saw both tourists and locals eating. It's also a clean and comfortable place to escape to if you're feeling overwhelmed by the city. The best part is this whole operation is run by a really incredible female entrepreneur who sources everything locally.

Kitamu may be slightly overrated. It's well-located and a decent meeting spot, however, after giving it multiple tries for business, with friends and solo, I found the food there mediocre. Nothing that I ate there stood out. The interior is a bit claustrophobic for my taste and the construction out back is rather disruptive to conversations upstairs. The Jobortunity-trained staff is top-notch.

I came here for dinner tonight. The restaurant wasn't overcrowded but had a nice showing. The first thing I noticed was the cleanliness, immediately followed by the soft and perfectly volumed music. It wasn't intrusive but was soothing and relaxing. Next, I looked through the extensive menu, showing breakfast, small bites, and a full and varied dinner menu. I chose a pea dish with coconut milk, served with rice. It was excellent. In addition, the staff was very friendly and attentive, but not intrusively. In addition, the restaurant ambiance is superb: relaxing, with comfortable seating and well-designed tables. I'm sure this place will become of my favorites in the city, with its extensive menu.

After being recommended by our friends and reading a lot about it, we decided to go and have breakfast but we were very disappointed. Though the food was good but the service was terrible. We waited for the food for so long to the point one of us had to leave. The internet was not so stable as well. We thought we would spend our morning eating while doing bits online but it wasn’t up to our expectations. Again, the breakfast was great so next time maybe we shall only try takeaway.

We found Kitamu Coffee a nice place to eat in Arusha. The first impression is important and we had all our breakfast, lunch and dinner at Kitamu during our stay in Arusha. Maria serving us all the times, she’s so nice and professional, her smile amazing. Thank you to all. Hope to return in Tanzania and see you again. Mauro & Rodolfo

We wanted to eat an early dinner at a local restaurant near the Clock Tower and we were so happy to have picked Kitamu Coffee! The decor is very nice and the service was extremely friendly. It appeared to be popular with locals, a very good sign. Prices were affordable. The Carrot and Ginger soup was especially delicious. There is a very wide variety of local and international dishes available, so there is something for every taste. We were very glad to have tried this local restaurant during our brief stay in Arusha.

We encountered so many locals here. Its a cool cafe. They have two floors. The service is slow, it took 1.30 min total, So, plan accordingly. Our server was nice. We sat downstairs as its cooler. We got samosas, masala chips, basically a potato omlette with chili sauce. This amazing chicken spinach and coconut dish called ugali made with maize, Kienyeji Chicken Mnafu Spinach which had an amazing flavor. We loved the pilaf. We tried the dessert which were little dry. Almond tarte and almond cake.

I have been visiting this place for the past four months. They have good coffee at a reasonable price compared to other places. However, one thing I have noticed throughout the time I have been here is that, the do not care about time. An order of a cup of expresso can take an average of 5 to 10 minutes in a normal day and 10 to 15 minutes on a busy hour. So if you are in a hurry, this is not a place to visit. But if you have ample time you will enjoy, by the way they have free WiFi.

Kitamu is simply the best coffee that you will find in Arusha; not only for its delicious and varied food (they have many different options for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, coffee and desserts) but the atmosphere of the place is just fantastic; the staff is adorable, they take care of every single detail, they are so attentive, the music , the decoration and the place itself are such an experience! You can spend hours here just enjoying the place and the good food. If you need to work they have a very friendly space for such purposes, good wi fi conditions, plugs available... Lea, the owner is the kindest person in town, she bakes the most delicious cakes and desserts, she is always smiling and she loves taking care of her customers. If you visit Arusha, you cannot miss this place, you will find traditional local food, drinks, good coffee, delicious smoothies and juices and much more!
