The place is like any other cafe, it is really nothing special and you can basically get the same thing you can get in any other chain (Java, Dorman's, Savannah), you just need to find the branch that best suits you. The nice thing is that they have outdoor seating, but the bad thing is that the notorious Ngong Road... More

This nice restaurant is located in the Junction Mall near the Dagoretti Corner matatu stage. We ate there several times during our stay in Nairobi. The atmosphere is very relaxed. There is outdoor, covered seating. The staff is very friendly and efficient. The menu is quite varied with many unique selections. We had excellent salads and a nice chicken sandwich.... More
