“Excellent place to spend an afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

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.

“Great spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

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!
