Great Masala chai, coffee and cappuccinos. We went many mornings because it was right next to our accommodation. It serves some pretty standard options for breakfast, traditional African dishes as well as a variety of Chinese food.

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.
