First of all, one of the things I appreciate most about the Tin Roof Café is that it's not in a mall, as so many of Nairobi's eateries are. Instead, it's set amidst trees and gardens, not dressed up, but chic. Thought has been put into the interior, with photography on the wall and a book swap ready for a long afternoon's coffee.
Secondly, the food is delicious. The kitchen is small, and when the plates come out you can taste the fact that someone has spent time creating it, not simply throwing together a plate on a big conveyor belt. Add to that their Ottolenghi-inspired salad bar, which makes for a hearty, wholesome, and delectable lunch; the salads alone bring me back for more.
The staff are very friendly and efficient, and really seem to care about the quality of the food and whether you enjoyed your meal, without being over fussy nor constantly hovering.
I've yet to see someone take advantage of the pétanque pitch outside, but it's a wonderful atmosphere in which to enjoy everything from a healthy, delicious lunch, or to set-up with a good book and indulge in another slice of home-made carrot cake.
