This place is fabulous. A peaceful respite from the busyness of Nairobi. Great outdoor seating and a simple, delicious menu. Coffee is good, as are the smoothies and fresh juices. The salad bar is unparalleled in Nairobi! A great spot for vegetarians. Cash only so dont forget your shillings.

We love the Tin Roof café. We lived just behind it, so we know it well. Fabulous salads and smoothies. A good coffee machine would be appreciated. Can't always get a table as this is a small café, but wait and you'll enjoy your lunch! Wifi too!

I really like the casual, intimate and tasteful ambiance of this little place - its pretty different for Nairobi (I am not in agreement with the reviewer who said it was typical of casual restaurants in the area). Granted the chairs are not that comfortable - a flat cushion would help, but the overall feel is jolly nice, a bit... More

Whether you are 're having breakfast or lunch it's a great small cafe with a difference. Enjoyed several meals here including the baked fish with the ottolenghi salad bar.to round it off was a double chocolate mousse which was just perfect.
