Where soul food and unbeatable views merge

Mr. Kahawa Café & Restaurant

Centred on Paje Beach, Mr. Kahawa Café & Restaurant is located on an unbeatable location. Sit back underneath the almond tree, gaze to the Indian Ocean and breathe in the calming vibe of – or what seems to be – your ultimate break.


Fusion food

We stand for nourishing food which is prepared with care and attention. Our kitchen is known for its’ (oftentimes) wholesome and colourful food, organic and locally sourced where possible. The chefs’ inspiration is endless, resulting in unique, healthy and flavourful dishes.

Award winning coffee & divine homemade drinks

Kahawa means coffee in Swahili, and coffee is where it all began. Mr. Kahawa started off as a small coffeeshop in 2015. We use pure Arabica coffee from the Utengule farm, made of grade “A” beans. Utengule coffee displays a full body (“coffee-ness”), fine citric acidity and undertones of blackberry. These characteristics are associated with high-grown coffee from the region and are desirable for gourmet type coffee.

Not in the mood for coffee? We have a variety of organic, Tanzanian teas and homemade refreshments. Our unique recipes only consist from the freshest ingredients and the creativity and love of our bartenders.

Mr. Kahawa Pops-Up!

Mr. Kahawa likes to get out of Paje and pops-up all over the island. Find our Deli stall on farmers markets and events, where we sell our favourite homemade products like peanut butter, jams, mustard and pickles.
