Seafront Cafe is small family run business right on the seafront in Lamu Old Town. Offering a range of Swahili Seafood dishes, we offer everything from fish and crab, lobster to calamari and even chicken and beef if seafood is not your thing. Our place is a wonderful spot to watch the world go by and rest in the shade. We are famous for our freshly prepared fruit juices. Choose from mango, papaya, pineapple, orange, lime, tamarind, watermelon, banana and passion fruit and you won't be disappointed.
