The smell gives you an invitation you just cannot say no to...and of course the coffee itself proves what the smell tell you

To mathias, i know the management coz I'm a regular there and I think you are wrong to suggest it was an "inside involvement" maybe take care of your belongings next time as indicated on the signs everywhere in Kenya.. As for the coffee and food, the mug is my favorite joint in nairobi

Have not tried their coffee yet but was pleased with the cakes. Loved the White Forest and Chocolate cake. I have to say they are better than the Dorman's cakes we tried. The service was good at the take-out counter and friendly.

I had my camera stolen here. Staff - including the manager - instantly became rude when I told them about it, refused to offer any assistance (including to call the police); CCTV was conveniently switched off for the incident. To me, it suggests inside involvement. Best avoided. In any case, the "Americano" I ordered tasted nothing like the real thing.
