A place where you can taste different types of coffee. Kilimanjaro is famous for Coffee. If you want to taste african coffee just go there.

Moshi is a low key town with the spectacular back drop of Kilomanjoaro and a very nice coffee shop. So be sure to stop off here as you take a look around the town. It's the place where coffee growers used to bring their beans to sell and trade and now it's a good place to chill, people watch and... More

The quintessential expat outpost in Moshi. Mostly for light lunches and drinks of all sorts; it has internet and is in a great location for rendezvous and the quiet and elegant setting allows longer visits and business to be conducted. Inside and outside seating with table service. Certainly more pricey than most other places of comparable offerings, but where else... More

Union Cafe offers some of the best coffee in town, and a good working space for the laptop-ridden. Power sockets and (paid) wi-fi are available. Besides coffee, a range of fast food and some cakes are available. All clean and appetizing, but a mite overpriced.

Nice coffee and cakes, and seems to be the meeting place for many travellers. They also have a section where information on trekking get displayed, which could give you an opportunity to link up with some travellers.

the expat day hangout in moshi; with travel agent next door and near banks and shops. Very nice coffees, and the light lunches are great for those that are homesick for some food from home. Salads are particularly good and well prepared. More expensive than others, but quality will never suffer

We have visited here a few times during our stays in Moshi. They roast and grind their own coffee so the coffee is excellent. The food however is average. The service is friendly. we usually sit outside on the terrace which is fine, you look out on the road, not surprisingly as you are in the centre of town. when... More
