Great place to hang for the morning if you want to watch the world go by or work if you need bit of peace and quiet. Coffee is great, service is quick and staff friendly enough to comeback again again ... Espresso with home made biscuits is good enough to last the day!

Good menus for coffee and goodies or for lunch with beer or Tangawizi! Easy to find in the middle of Moshi, on the corner.

The coffee is roasted and ground on the spot. The smell is heavenly. Breakfasts are awesome, especially the omelets. Western foods are prevalent. Sandwiches, pizza, etc. The best are the desserts yummy chocolate cake to irresistible passion fruit cheesecake!

Locals in Arusha & Moshi recommended this place both for drinking coffee and buying beans to take home. The coffee was good, although the milk in Tanzania is probably harder to froth well, so if you are fussy stick with the non-milk varieties. My picture is their version of a cafe latte. The wifi is not free and we didn't... More

Set in a gently restored old colonial trade building and frequented by local, tourist and expatriate hipsters. Smack down central Moshi makes for easy access, but also a bit of a noisy environment. Coffee is good, but not spectacular. Same as the food. The cakes on the other hand are amazing.

We had about 17 people there for lunch. The staff was very accommodating and the food came out in a timely manner. We also wanted to buy coffee beans there and the staff ordered a special shipment for us and reserved it for pick up later. Great service with excellent staff!
