Nice cafe opposite Mama Africa Gift Shop. Perfect combination. Building and interior hints at bygone eras. Lovely balcony to sit on. Good coffee and nice food. Reasonable prices and good service. Perfect!

We'd stopped off in Moshi en route home from a long journey and had looked up good places. We arrived with our 3 hungry/tired children hoping for a relatively quick service and some decent food. We waited for about an hour for the food to...arrive and when it did, there were 2 issues 1) the described chicken wrap was very disappointing and definitely not worth waiting for an hour for and 2) the burgers we had ordered were the wrong ones that the 2 kids couldn't eat. We were really disappointed with the service, the food and the timing. Couldn't comment on the coffee, which sounds like it is good but the food and other factors were below average.More

The place is mostly for western people visiting Moshi for the first time. Food (western type) is average but very expensive (triple price) Pizza is 16000 tsh. Nice location. WiFi has good speed. It's not a place to go if you want local food.

Go to enjoy the vintage vibe, photo opportunities and people watching from the terrace. The lattes were decent, but despite the appealing menu, the food was neither fresh nor tasty. We ordered a variety including sandwiches, mezze, and pastries, and although the wait was long,...nothing looked or tasted fresh. There are some really excellent cafes in Moshi, so stick to coffee here and eat elsewhere.More

No waiter on arrival to help us get a table and menu t So we did that ourselves. The 5 Alfredos took almost 2 hours to make and they still got the order wrong and with no apology. We traveled to Moshi to climb mount...Kilimanjaro and do the marathon and this was our most disappointing experience. I hope they aren't offering preferential treatment to different customers.

Our food took close to 2 hours to be served. They got the order wrong. There was no welcome us and organize for us seats. The staff aren’t courteous. The pasta wasn’t well prepared. It lacked spices. Portion of food was small.

Good menu and good service in a really cool old cafe. The coffee was excellent. Everybody enjoyed their food, but the pizza was a highlight.

Aside from the tourist-accomodating hours, cool decor, free Wi-Fi, and delicious pancakes, they have the freshest coffee I have ever tasted. It's conveniently located in Moshitown. Check it out, and grab a bite with your coffee!

My personal problem with Union cafe stems from the fact that it’s ridiculously expensive. I ordered an iced coffee that was around 9,000 TZS and it was pretty much 80% ice, and a tiny bit of coffee. They use big chunky ice rather than normal...sizes and charge more than what you can get at another café! The food is ok but I’d rather order from indoitaliano where you get better quality for a lower price. I genuinely love the chocolate cake and the cheesecake but it is so darn expensive (10,000 TZS) for such a small slice! The service is also alright, there is kind of a cold atmosphere which doesn’t really feel inviting. P.S. I am a local and I think it it a trap for tourists. It may appeal tourists but I think there are better places in Moshi to check out.More

Nice quiet place to escape the lively street outside. Good basic menu. The cooked breakfast was good, but the coffee was excellent.
