NookAkamba Court off Woodlands Lane, Hurlingham, Nairobi
Nicole's absence is painfully obvious from when you call in to make a reservation to when you walk in. The problem with such intimate spaces is you get used to the people there. And the absence of Nicole's bubbly personality is definitely noticeable. That said, the new chef is pretty good, complete opposite, more reserved, but i guess its about the food. She whipped up a pretty decent breakfast and the iced rooibas tea is to die for. Still a pretty magical place for an intimate catch up.
Visited nook cafe for Sunday brunch! Enjoyed some delicious tacos plus poached egg, avo, on some toast. The owner Nicole who is also the chef was so pleasant and it was great to chat away as I enjoyed a cold brew after brunch while my date had a plum, strawberry spritzer.
