“Great Food in Outdoor Garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

Food and beer were first class. Lunch was in a beautiful garden under a sun umbrella. A perfect lunch after visiting the Karen Blixen house.

“Great ambiance and lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Excellent food and lunch while we were visiting the elephant orphanage and several curio shops. A resident artist was showing and selling his creations. A wonderful time.

“Just perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

The ambience, helpful and friendly staff and the really good food makes this warm garden setting an absolute pleasure. We had taken the bus (24) to the Karen Blixen Museum and had been shown around that delightful house and decided to walk up the road to have lunch at the Coffee House. We were really well rewarded and sat in the garden eating and drinking with the quiet "burble" of other guests and the occasional Sacred Ibis sqwark. Outside the bus picked us up and took us slowly back to the city.
