Lunch in a relaxed countryside environment
If you are one of those people who like places where you can lazy around in the afternoon as you enjoy vegan foods then Shamba Cafe is for you. Shamba Cafe located on the outskirts of Nairobi is aptly named because it sits among maize fields and coffee plantations. As soon as you arrive at the Shamba you feel relaxed in the countryside environment. In this rustic setting are two buildings designed like old barns. A large grey barn serves as the main restaurant. It has a high ceiling from which hang bronze and orange round light fixtures. They brighten up the dark seats and sage-colored upholstery. The large open green spaces with plenty of shade from tall trees provide plenty of room for your kids to run around and roll on the grass as they wait for the kid’s vegetarian platter or the macaroni and cheese. It is family, friend, and dog friendly too. The service was impressive, the waiters were switched on and helpful. For lunch, we started off ordering only three things to share because we weren’t sure whether we would like the food or not. We ordered the vegan pizza because I hadn’t had that from outside in forever. Most places in Kenya don’t offer vegan pizza so I was like we have to get that. We also ordered the Sopa Azteca (Tortilla soup) and lastly, we got some regular fries because fries are life lol. As I said, I needed to get some food in me so I was so excited when the food came and looked so good. We tried the pizza first and it was amazing! They allow you to choose your toppings for no extra charge. The soup was amazing too, and the fries were awesome too. We also ordered some dessert because as we all know there is a different stomach for desserts. They had a vegan brownie sundae which I was SO excited to try. Once we were done eating, we decided to walk around to burn off some of the thousands of calories we had just eaten. Shamba Cafe Serves meat, and vegan options are available. Restaurant & farm shops offer clearly marked vegan dishes such as breakfast and brunch platters, shakshuka, soups, hummus, quinoa bowl, zucchini noodles, sweet chili tofu, pizza, brownie sundae, house-made sorbets, and more. Has plant milk for coffee and tea. Hosts live music events and weekend activities for children. Overall, this was an amazing experience. I would so recommend going to Shamba Cafe if you’re ever in Nairobi. Seriously, don’t miss out on this wonderful place. It has something for everyone, whether you’re vegan or not.
