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.

Oh I wish I could’ve recorded this incident because is to hard to believe. Went with friends and family to this cafe and my cousin asked for the mobile money payment number. The bill was Tshs. 61,000 and my cousin clearly stated that he would...add on transaction fees (probably around Tshs. 2,700 extra). After doing the transaction my cousin had to run a few errands so he left a few of us at the cafe. Suddenly a waiter (I believe his name was Abdul) shouted at us from behind the counter that the payment was not received with additional transaction fees and that this waiter was personally offended by this action. We asked how much was missing so we could top up but this angry waiter was unable to even determine what was needed. I put Tshs 3,000 on the table to cover the extra cost but we then proceeded to ask this waiter to show us the mobile money message he received. Upon checking the message together we discovered that the transaction costs were indeed covered and had this waiter read the message fully it would’ve cleared him of all doubt. I then advised him not to shout at his customers next time and to not take such things personally. To my surprise he called me a liar saying that he never shouted and that I should not interfere in the matter. Fast forward to us calling the manger who took forever to attend to us; the manager apologized, stating that he had not read the transaction message in full. The manager also stated that the would ask the waiter to give an apology. I kid you not but when this waiter was called, he blatantly stated in front of his superior that he would do no such thing as apologize as I was wrong for advising him not to shout at customers! The so called manager did nothing. So be very careful with Abdul (not sure if his name is correct). And I would advise management to promote a Abdul to be in charge of everyone since his supervisor cannot instruct him.More

Coffee is good. Not the best you’ve ever had but a very decent one. You’ll pay for it though. Regarding cakes, expect to pay around €4 (10000tzs) for a quite small piece and very average flavor (you’ll think you’ve tried then better in McDonald’s). Staff...is friendly but yeah, as mentioned this is the typical touristic place you’re going to because you read it in Lonely Planet guide. They have good coffee beans to buy at good price though.More
