I ordered sandwich that looks really empty- having one slice of boiled egg & 2 slice of eggplant. Tasteless! Though the salad that served together with the sandwich is good. In the end the server came to give our change that is mistakenly counted. The service should be More aware of this before giving change.

So the food and drink is good (as you could expect from a chain in Kenya) but the service is painfully slow. If you order and ice coffee you do not expect to wait 15 minutes, especially when the place is nearly empty. The staff should be trained/motivated to improve the customer experience.

WiFi is free and decent. Coffee is really god - so is the vanilla icecream - but even if the place has a lot of staff -- i counted to 8 people for some 20 tables - the service is very slow.

Great place to hang out and get a good cup of coffee. No complaints at all. I'd recommend stopping by if you want a nice latte, coffee or tea and their cake is also great.
