The title says it all. I have been to Union Cafe everyday I've been in Moshi. I've enjoyed the salads, milkshakes, coffee, and the chocolate cheesecake will make your toes curl! Yes it's that good, and taste like home! You can sit inside or out, wifi costs you by the half hour or full. I paid full and it was... More

The Union Cafe is one of my favourite hangouts in Moshi. They roast their own coffee beans on site, purchased from smallholders who grow the coffee on the lower slopes of Kilimanjaro. They do great pizzas to, baked in a real pizza oven.

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.
