If you ever doubted that a tomato and cheese sandwich can fill you up? You have to try this place out. This is the one signature dish that you can't go wrong with. I think they are closed on Mondays.

Description
Laughing Buddha Lounge and Cafรฉ started in June 2009 with a unique concept of a Vegetarian Cafรฉ serving fresh Eggless Cakes and Pastries and a mouthwatering menu of foods from around the world, alongside a boutique Hookah Lounge Bar. In a very short time, Laughing Buddha, or fondly known as LB became a popular brand amongst residents and visitors to Kisumu. On the top of our signature treats are the Sizzling Brownie, Grilled Sandwiches, Milkshakes and Mini Desserts. What was once a dream project to fulfill an everlasting passion for food and fine dining has now been ranked in Top Three in well-known travel guides and websites.
