Staff took their time paying us attention, taking our order and bringing the food. They seemed offended when asked to give us sugar & lemon for our tea. They seemed to jump into action, with wide grins, when a white customer appeared. When told of the poor service, they stared at us with dispassion & nonchalance. One shouldn't have to... More

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... More

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... More

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

The menu includes breakfast items, to pizza, chicken, meat, salads and pasta so there is something for everyone! There is also wifi and outdoor seating so the atmosphere is very pleasant as... More

Nice, clean cafe/restaurant. The pizzas are very good and service is top quality. Good outdoor space to sit and chill. Prices are not too high considering it caters mainly for expats.
