Carol's Cafe offers local food at good prices in a tranquil environment. The soups are delicious and generous, made with local ingredients. In fact, all the ingredients at Carol's are sourced locally. Although it is geared towards tourists, locals frequent the place too. The price...differential is made up by the individual care put into preparing each meal. The dining area is partially outdoors, and you can hear birds and see the cabbage growing next to you. I spent entire workdays here, ordering coffee, lunch, more coffee, and chocolate cake. Their wifi is free. How it is so close to the main road but without the hectic nature? Probably the flowers, the fenced space, the outdoor terrace, and the freshly brewed coffee. Plus, Carol is a gem of a human. She built this business from the ground up and makes sure she treats her customers with utmost respect. It feels good to leave a generous tip for such a locally and socially conscious cafe!More

The food here is always delicious! The ciabatta sandwiches are awesome and the feta samosas are by FAR the best! Carol is also great at putting together food for corporate lunches and also parties! A definite local favourite place for lunch or just a quick...snack!More

Absolutely lovely cafe with amazing food. Sometimes food takes a while to come out (Kenyan time haha) but if you let the girls know you're in a bit of a rush they'll get it out faster. All cooked fresh, highly recommend the quiche and soup....Best chips in Nanyuki closely followed by Cape Chestnut. Really friendly staff and a few little shops inside the building you can mooch around while waiting for your food. Miss you guys.More

Popped in to collect something that had been dropped off at the cafe and order a chicken sandwich and chips to take away. It smelt amazing all the way home and tasted just as good when unwrapped - Chips were really good.

Excellent reception & perfect cookery. A nice place for family and friends to have a snack, lunch or dinner... And a nice location for a date. Anyone on a road trip via this route should just pass by Caro's and try her fish, the chicken...wings or get a basket!More
