“I'd move to Kenya for a cafe this good...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

Beautiful cafe, delicious food, friendly staff. I could have stayed all day playing board games, working on the fast wifi, or just eating everything on the menu. Last time I went I was in rush and the wonderful Carol cooked up a yummy steak sandwich with a selection from the excellent salad bar. Next time I'm in Kenya, Tin Roof Cafe will be my first stop. If you haven't been you have to go.

“A must go if in Nairobi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

Great Fresh food
Outstanding service
Perfect location in Karen, (the same place has a beauty salon, a book shop, a jewelry and fashion shop, a home decoration shop and the beautiful beaded collars your dog should wear! )

Probably the hypest and coolest place to have breakfast, lunch or tea. No wonder its always full!

Go for a quick bite the service is excellent
Go for a long lunch the food is outstanding

With a fresh, unique salad bar daily, delicious juices, healthy sandwiches and the best atmosphere in town you really cannot go wrong with a lunch stop at the Tin Roof Cafe...Where have you been all my life! The yummiest place in town!

“Notting Hill with a Nairobi twist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

I'd heard lots about this place but living on the other side of town never went… Until recently. If you go for lunch and spend a couple of hours in the lovely garden it's 100% worth the traffic, even if it's reeeeally bad. Heartily recommend… It's Notting Hill with a Nairobi twist.
