Beautiful setting for leisurely lunch

Tucked away, a stone's throw from Catholic University of Eastern Africa is this beautiful, peaceful, outdoors restaurant.

Delicious spinach ravioli. Wonderful service. The open air feeling gives full opportunity to enjoy the perfect weather. The key lime cheesecake and French press Kenyan coffee was a treat.
