Nice Cafe, great cheescake, great location - but a bit on the expensive side. Definately the big tourist hangout spot in Moshi!

Loved our time at Union Cafe. Service was great, atmosphere was delightful and a good coffee and slice of cake or two were appreciated before a safari. The little local gifts are really nice too!
