We stayed at the Mountain in before and after our Kilimanjaro climb. Very nice swimming pool and relax area. Can get a taxi into Moshi from the hotel to explore. The Reception staff is extremely friendly and helpful.

Indoitaliano

Reviewed By Alfred G

After our return from Kili we had an enjoyable evening at the live;ly Terrace of Indoitaliano. We ordered pizza, chicken tikka masala and lots of garlic and plain naan. All was very nice, although personally I enjoyed the Indian food the most. Portions are quite big, so make sure you don't order too much (which we unfortunately did). Easy access, every taxi driver knows the reataurant. Try it, you will like it!

Kili Java has now moved to the Nakumatt building just off the clock roundabout behind Kahawa House(the big tower block)the same food offerings as before in an open Seating area by the main entrance to Nakumatt. Prices are reasonable and food pretty good. Many expats hang out there and it's a great place for new people to Moshi to ask for advice.

Union Cafe

Reviewed By Yoc11 - Stockholm, Sweden

Union Coffee offers one of town's best espressos, good quality (if somewhat overpriced) light meals Western style, and tasteful and calm surroundings amidst the most bustling part of Moshi. That I rate it somewhat lower than last time is mainly due to the fact that it is no longer one of a kind. At present there are a number of joints that offer similar advantages at some or lower prices. All the same- worth stepping in if you're around!

Kilimanjaro Coffee Lounge

Set within an open and welcoming compound within a secure environment, we welcome you to come and relax over a cup of Kilimanjaro Arabica coffee or to enjoy freshly prepared food. The ambiance is African, the music international and the atmosphere relaxing.

Reviewed By RichardUpshall - Dubai, United Arab Emirates

So we ate breakfast and lunch here on our recent visit to Moshi, and quite frankly I thought it was awesome.
Great coffee, great cooked breakfast (with the strange Moshi eggs with almost white yolks), good service all spoken in English.
Lunch, I had salad with beef, and it was perfectly well cooked with stacks of Avocado on the side (very much in season and there are Avo trees all over the place).
Highly recommended, sit outside if the weather is good, cheap and wholesome.

They were closed. The sign was in Swahili, so I don't know why it was closed other than the fact that the tourist season had not yet started. We have gone here the past few years and never seen it closed.
It was a disappointment.
Hopefully it will reopen.

Union Cafe

Reviewed By Alina Mariana C

Came here for breakfast, the place is really pretty.
The service was fast and the people were friendly.
The touches of cinnamon in the coffee were delicious (especially after a lot of days of instant coffee on the mountain).
Food was good and they have avocado toast!
Went again on the next day because it was better than the breakfast in our hotel.

Kilimanjaro Coffee Lounge

Reviewed By Yaron G

Located in the heart of Moshi Town, the place has cozy garden. The menu covers almost everything known to man (burgers, pasta, mexican, breakfast, sandwiches, baked goods, pizza, veggie). We had breakfast and pizza, both were decent. The coffee was good - Tanzania is a coffee growing country but we came from Kili and were dying for decent espresso and machiato. The WIFI that was one of the reasons to go there (per recommendation by friends) did not operate during our visit. Probably on of Moshi's attractive places for visitors and tourists.
