“Becoming overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

With its first opening at the Westgate Mall, this became one of the more fashionable coffee meeting places for Nairobi's middle class and expat community because it offered a first world ambiance for the emerging coffee café culture. Still very popular but I have been disappointed in terms of service and food/drinks quality in recent times. They seem to have taken things for granted, probably because the competition (Java Coffee Houses, Dormans,...) now also offers the same rather mediocre fare (mostly fast food, cold coffee, at times not so fresh pastries). There are better, but also worse, places in Nairobi to eat and have coffee.

“Great Place in Kenya”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

If you want a relaxing atmosphere and a inexpensive place for lunch or brunch this is a great place to go. It is one of my favorite places to just grab a bit or coffee. A place where locals go for business and things.
