“overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

a place to see and be seen. It would just be a normal cafe in a european country, but here it is seen as posh. highly overrated and too pricey. But the food is decent :) except the gnocchi so far, hated that. Some staff is not very friendly either.

“If you love good salads, this is it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

Sometimes it's hard to find a good fresh salad in a Kenyan restaurant. In Nairobi, this place solves that problem!
In fact, you can create your own salad: I asked for a Nicoise salad, but no tuna fish and add feta cheese instead. Done!
Everything is fresh, clean, and quite delicious. BTW the Greek salad is outstanding (though why serve dry toast with it?).
We go here regularly - and (as a vegetarian) it's my favorite place in Nairobi.
Oh and great desserts!

“Modern cafe but average service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

A modern and stylish cafe located on the outer ring of the village market centre.
Good food and variety. Decent ambience, great place to meet up with friends/family or for a business meeting. Reasonably priced although on the higher end given its contemporary feel and targeting a more upmarket clientele.

Recommendation: Chocolate mousse is amazing and is a meal in itself!

“Overpriced and crap service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Pretty much says it all in my title. Awful service that somehow attracts numerous muzungus (myself included) in coming here... Last time.
