This cafe has been going a long time and is as popular as ever with good reason. Nice ambience, excellent coffee, sinful cakes and a tempting light food menu always fresh. A very mixed crowd frequents the place. Kenyan businessmen, students , expats, the laptop crowd. Reasonably priced, consistent quality assures it will be around for a while yet.

I do not know why this place is so popular, maybe cause in Africa there are so few coffee houses. The coffee isn't great. There is no free wireless where as you can get this in other coffee houses. Food is good and selection is great. Staff are slow and not very friendly.
