5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

What a wonderful surprise to find. After living in Gabon for 3 years, it is a wonderful change (experience) to come to someplace so beautiful and friendly!!! Very welcoming and relaxing for a restaurant! I can't wait to bring our family and friends here when they visit Kenya!!! It will be one of our favourites for sure!!!

Karen Blixen coffee garden was simply charming! Our group of 8 women had a lovely lunch and stroll through the gardens with photo ops every step of the way. Good food, good drinks, good service.
