“Boulevard of broken dreams”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2011

Something homely about this place, i always hang out here on the cafe side as its quieter and i always enjoy their wall hangings 'boulevard of broken dreams'.Their juice is fresh and most of their baked items.

Hi. My sincere gratitude for your apprecition and comments of Pasara. The series of pictures on "Broken Dreams" are so meaningful and lesson learning. Glad you enjoy them. Next visit check-out the other side depicting Nairobi around the time of WW1. Nostalgia. We sincerely appreciate your patronage. Karibu.

“No concept of customer service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2010

An unfortunate experience. Having pointed to and ordered from the break fast menu for eggs and bacon, only the eggs appeared. We then asked for the bacon which came separately and was charged for as an extra. An attempt to clear it up with the waitress was clearly not getting through. The manager at first would not come to the table, but when he did he just backed her up and said we had ordered 'a la carte' and had to pay for separate items. A bit rich as there was no a la carte menu. The price difference was not huge, but the principle was completely missed. Not recommended at all. Go to the Thorn Tree Cafe round the corner instead. Pricier, but on a different planet in terms of service and food quality

Hi. My sincere double apology - one for the delay in responding and the other one for the unfortunate breakfast experience at Pasara. We have revamped our menu since then and anticipate that it is now more clearer for both our valued customers and staff to interpret the offerings and pricing. Please be assured that Pasara continues to be "value for money" entity. We hope that you have overlooked the one incident and are frequenting Pasara.Kind regards.
