All I had at the place was two quiches - one bacon and cheese, and another spinach quiche. Hands down, the best quiche I've ever had. It was rich, creamy, filling and presented wonderfully. Coupled with a very cafe like ambiance and very courteous staff, it's a lovely cafe. I was in Nairobi for just a day and happened upon... More

This is probably the best baker in east Africa. Simply world class quality. Almost everything here is unimaginably excellent. The only downside are the sandwich fillings, a bit boring and looking tired.

It's not easy to find consistent freshly prepared bread... but Alexandre, Yaya Centre, have done it! Try it with the spicy tuna and some vegetables, you won't be going anywhere else. Love the Cafe Latte as well.

The selection is fabulous if not expensive, and upstairs is a pleasant outdoor verandah area to catch some sun. Service is the usual ho-hum but a change from the Java/Savannah coffee houses

Good food in nice area but prices can be steep. Recommend croissants and madelines on their menu. Ample parking as well.

This wannebe french boulangerie has very good taste and make excellent pastry but the catch is you have either to be Nouveau riche or blue blood. how they are still in business and profitable is something to be studied for six sigma. Or a living testament of how corrupt a country with easy money not earned can be spent easily.... More

Having visited a couple of months ago and eaten a delicious quiche with salad for a tiny price, I can only think that prices have been hiked massively, or the staff made an error on the bill. Having taken a group of friends there for lunch today I was astonished to be charged 750 KES for a sarnie (albeit a... More

Best bread, pastries in town. After work we love to go to this place having a coffee outside on the small terrasse.
