Good atmosphere and a relaxing way to spend your afternoon out of the Mombasa heat. My fiancee is vegetarian and they made a special dish for her without any issues. The coffee is also very good

A nice cafe with a full menu for a hearty meal. Try their signature Swahili coffee, made from brewed local coffee mixed with spices.
