I went to this place to have a cup of coffee, juice, and a banana split. The service was very fast. The banana split tasted very good because it was super natural. I really liked this place because they have an awesome garden, and you can just chill while reading a book. I was actually quite tired and just laid... More

Veggie burger was good + coffee decent. Peaceful + leafy courtyard area where you can eat and relax. Centrally located just minutes from the main bus stand and ~100m from the main street in Moshi.

This is my second review - I first visited here ten years ago, and it's really hardly changed - other than that it now serves Chinese food (??) It's very popular with local expats, volunteers and locals who want to meet up with expats. It's locally run, prices are very reasonable, there is a lovely, peaceful garden where all the... More

Tried a few coffee spots in Moshi and The Coffee Shop was our fave. Nice places to sit as well, outside, inside or in the rear courtyard.

Good place in moshi to have a break from work especially if you work at mawenzi hospital or if you do shopping on double road, than you are pretty close to the Coffeeshop. You can sit inside or in a small garden behind the house, there it is save and quiet. There are more tourists than locals, so it depends... More

I came to The Coffee Shop with a local. I was told it was the best coffee in town and it's not a tourist stop. They make great Coffee at a great price. I had a Mocha Latte and it was exactly what I was expecting! If you are visiting and don't want the inflated tourist prices come here for... More

The interior of this place is alright but nothing to write home about. The coffee was really good, I got an ice coffee and my partner got a long black. We did however have to wait over an hour for our food to arrive, it is quite normal in Tanzania to wait a while, everything seems to be done pole... More

We had pizza and "filled potato skins". Nothing to brag about. Tasty enough but very simple and took well over an hour. Pay In Tanzanian shillings or go home crying
