This place is recommended for hanging out in the afternoon, when coming back from the giraffe center or Karen Blixen Museum since the restaurant/cafe is located in the same area. NIce coffee, deserts and atmosphere. Fully recommended.

We had excellent service and food. Five of us stopped here for lunch after the giraffe centre and walking around the Karen Blixen Museum. We sat outside in the beautiful gardens. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered. We also shared some unique nachos before our meal. Prices are higher than some other places but well worth it when you consider the lovely atmosphere. We walked around the property and thought it would be a great place to stay overnight.

My colleague and I stopped here for lunch after visiting Karen Blixen's house, we intended to have a quick lunch then go on to visit the Railway museum....we never made the museum. The atmosphere, the service and the food was just delightful, there was no way we could rush through lunch. It is obviously a regular spot for families to enjoy a long afternoon, I can see why.

We stopped here in between visiting the Orphanage, Karen Blixen Museum, Kazuri Bead Factory and general shopping day. The gardens are very beautiful and it is a beautiful place to just stop and enjoy a nice meal and a drink before continuing with your day.

Went for lunch after visiting the David Sheldrick Orphanage. Always a great place to have lunch. It was cold and staff brough us some "heater" (charcoal), which was extremely pleasant. Service was greta, staff is very professional. Food is also great. Recommend.
