“Great for iced coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

I have to say this place is one of the best places in the world to have an iced coffee.
The fact they give you liquid sugar (it is so helpful) give it a go if you pass one.
They also have free wi-fi

“Great improvement!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

The fish is very good, tartar sauce is decent, carrot cake is divine... coffee is freshly brewed... Lil more choice on the menu in terms of choice would be good.

“Nothing to write home about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

A chain of fast food restaurants and coffee shops just like others in Nairobi. Was a change from the few older coffee places in Nairobi when its started but has become a bit complacent and 'deja vu' over the years. OK for q quick meal and some (cold) coffee but not worth a detour since there are many other such places in Nairobi offering the same these days.

“Western style, comfortable place to take a break from busy Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

It's a great oasis in a busy city. I had a bran muffin which was amazing and an iced coffee which was....not so amazing. Overall, it's super clean and a great place to go when you (you are an expat, aren't you?) need a "break" from the chaos of Nairobi.
