Cute family oasis in Mbweni

Tupomoja is a different kind of café and just the right spot to relax with your children

Two best friends from the mainland came to Zanzibar with a dream of one day owning their own cafe. After seven years of working for its former owner, Saumu Mohamed and Fatma Juma made their dream come true and are now the new owners of the Tupomoja Café in Mbweni.

Recently they have enlarged the space (photo left), which has from the beginning been attractive with families. “We receive so many guests with children, so we decided to open a bigger play area and also more seating space“, says Saumu.

Tupomoja means ‘we are together’ in Swahili. The café is tucked in the suburbs of Zanzibar town, in Mbweni, in a quiet, green street. The café has been operating since 2013 and is open for breakfast and lunch seven days a week offering a unique style of healthy, homemade dishes such as garden salads, fresh tropical fruits, delicious juices. Try out their most popular food on the menu, salty pancakes and their breakfast deluxe for TZS 15,000.

If that’s not for you, you may also build your own menu. Tupomoja offers lunch for school kids, very popular homemade birthday cakes, handmade jams, syrups, green pesto and brown bread as take-away. There is a free delivery service to Mbweni and Chukwani.
