From the Press



“During a brief visit to Kigali I managed to visit this lovely rooftop café. The smoothies are phenomenally good. I would highly recommend the tropical one and the peanut butter, chocolate and banana one. I had a chicken salad which was delicious but everyone in our group seemed to really enjoyed whatever they ordered. I would definitely recommend dropping in for drink and a bit of food if possible.”


“This is my favorite spot in all of Kigali! The ambiance is airy, relaxed, and cozy. The balcony seats provide a remarkable view of Kigali while the inside seating surrounds you with books and artwork. I read, sipped on delicious, freshly made hot tea, and enjoyed a delicious, healthy lunch. I felt pampered by the warm, welcoming hospitality of the servers. Jonathan is the best! I could live here!”

“I stayed for over a month in Kigali, and this was definitely my favorite spot. To be honest, I think I came here every single day of my stay in the city. As for me it was an ideal place to work on my paper, quiet en cozy. The food is very light, but delicious. I can recommend the passion fruit juice, the harira soup and the veggie quesadilla. I had it almost every day for lunch and was never bored of it! A special thanks goes to the amazing staff! I have never encountered such a friendly and helpful people! They made me feel like home. I will definitely go there again, hopefully in a near future.”
