“lunch stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We stopped here after visiting the museum. The lunch was lovely and good value. It was a cool day but we sat outside and were given wood burning fires to keep us warm which was lovely.

“Perfect ending to fabulous safari trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

We made plans to eat lunch after a long dusty drive in from the Maasai Mara-- this was the end of an 11 day safari trip with Tropical Woods Adventures. The coffee gardens and restaurant were perfect for a relaxing time. We ate in the shade out under the tree cover. It was comfortable and so relaxing. Food was excellent as was the service. If you plan to visit the Karen Blixen House Museum, add this to your trip, too, as they are almost next door. It helps if you have reviewed your history with Out of Africa or any of the other books by or about Karen Blixen and the magical time of earlier British Colonial Kenya.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

The gardens were beautiful, the food excellent and the service great. Some artists had their work on display and it was a wonderful way to spend a couple of hours, I would recommend stopping in after a visit to the Karen Blixen Museum.
