Food for lunch was Fantastic,although not authentic it was full of tourists and appeared to be a "safe haven" away from the street sellers. Good atmosphere and would recommend highly

Went for a snack lunch. It's in central Arusha. It was spot the local. Mainly western tourists. Anyway I had coffee and samosas. One samosa was hot the other cold. To add insult the coffee was bairly drinkable.

The prices are more Mzungu than Tanzanian. I would say about 5000 Tzs for a coffee from memory.
