There are places we will remember for the memorable things we saw, the delightful food we ate, and then there are places we will recall for how they made us feel. Tin Roof Café is one such place… I will always remember how it made me feel. 🙂
Each time I think of Tin Roof Café, a sunny kind of warmth washes over me, bringing to mind lots of laughter, good stories and great food.
Food is our common ground, our universal experience~James Beard
About a month ago, we got an invite to Tin Roof Café, for a Blogger’s lunch. The luncheon was also to kick off #DisCoucherTours, in marking the launch of the 2017 DisCoucher book issue.

A Little About Tin Roof Café
I have been to Tin Roof Café before, and suffice it to say that this was my best experience yet. 😀 They have two Café outlets, in Langata, and in Karen. I am familiar with the Karen outlet, which is directly opposite the Hub, at ‘The Souk’.
The cafe itself is lovely, set in what was probably a home before, giving off a cozy, homely feel. Their garden restaurant is plush with the crisp smell of fresh herbs, flowers and low hanging trees. It is the perfect place for coffee on a sunny day, when you just want to soak in the sun as you read a book.

The Bloggers’ Lunch: A Foodie’s Haven
This part right here, is the highlight of this entire blog post! 😀 Our time at Tin Roof Café was enriched by the company we had on this particular day…
To begin with, it was nice to finally meet one of our hosts, Sharon of DisCoucher. Have you ever met someone you ‘know’ via virtual communication on email or social media, and it felt like you’ve known them all along? Sharon Njoroge is an amazing lady, whose online vs real-life persona does not disappoint! 😀
The lunch setup was simply beautiful and eye-catching. Unfortunately, Wanjiku and I were a little late, so we did not manage to capture any of the ‘before’ pictures. We arrived just in time to get into the swing of things.
Hot On The Menu
The menu items were tastefully displayed on pink cards adjacent to the salad bowls. Tin Roof has this unique concept where they serve a buffet of salads, with a choice accompaniment on à la carte.
Although I am not the biggest Salads fan, I have to admit that if Tin Roof’s salad menu was a lady, it would turn a whole lot of heads. 😀
I have to admit that this particular visit and food experience gave me a way better appreciation for Tin Roof Café. 🙂
Good Food = Good Mood
My favorite part of the lunch was in meeting my fellow bloggers- some that have been at this for years! It was fun, easygoing and chilled. We swapped stories about blogging, life, careers even parenting… (well, at least I listened in on that part! :D)

I happened to be one of the only two Travel bloggers present, in the midst of Food bloggers, which was quite a treat… As I was trying to figure out what in the world Quinoa (part of the salads) is, you could tell that they were well in their elements. The learning never stops I tell you! 😀
You know I always have your back, so I will leave the links to their blogs down below if you wish to check them out. I promise that it will be worth it, as you discover recipes that will charm your taste buds and knock your socks off!:D
- Tin Roof Café offers a variety of healthy eating options, excellent for those who are health-conscious.
- It is perfect to visit when you want to work in the calming outdoors, or simply to hangout with friends.
- You may find the portions of the main accompaniment to be small; the trick is to stash up on the salads. All the same, it is good for exercising portion control. 😀
- They allow dogs, so you can enjoy a day out with your true ‘bestie.’
- Bonus: there is an art gallery right next to Tin Roof (Polka Dot Art Gallery) and an African pieces shop on the same premises.
- Tin Roof Cafe is one of the many places featured on DisCoucher, so be sure to grab a copy to enjoy amazing discounts!
Many thanks to Tin Roof Café and DisCoucher for a memorable time of fun, food and laughter! 😀

When you are among food bloggers and they order for food almost immediately and you have to ask the server a million questions….
what is that exactly?
Is it nice?
Would you recommended this, or this or that or the other one?
Then you see someone else food and say ‘Kama hiyo’
Scrapbook JourneysJune 5, 2017 at 11:35 am
Hahahaha 😀 The one person who can relate! This is the beauty of life I suppose- the learning never stops! 😀
