We arrived at Nairobi airport after midnight on a Qatar flight from London via Doha. Staying in Karen for what was left of the night and walking to the Tin Roof Cafe in the morning felt a long way from Surrey! The welcome was friendly and the menu was promising. The Wi-Fi made email accessible, reducing withdrawal symptoms. The food was fresh and interesting, the service excellent. The surroundings were pleasantly airy and tropical. Our first breakfast in Africa was a good experience and a great start to a busy week.

Tin Roof might be quite a new opening in Karen, however we had a fabulous lunch here. The food was excellent - they have a salad bar which is inspired by Ottolenghi, and really scrumptious. Not your run of the mill salads, but something a bit different. And I think they change it every day. Then there are other options on the menu - I went for a chicken and dhania pancake which I thought was excellent too. They have fresh juices to drink, and then coffee afterwards. We also tucked into a freshly made cupcake which was naughty but delicious. The atmosphere there is very relaxed, they have wifi and service is super friendly. It's also so close to Karen shopping that you can walk.
