The best cake place so far for me in nanyuki, lovely tea, amazing staff and helpful too. A good place to chill and have a meal, tea or coffee, whether with friends or alone it feels welcoming.

It's been several years since we visited the Courtyard Cafe, but it was a wonderful experience! The food was delicious- fresh and full of flavor. The service was great and the staff very accommodating to our large group. Would love to visit again next time we are in Nanyuki!

Quick no frills food . Step back in time and see how early settler traders lived. The court yard is a former home now turned into a restaurant surrounded by an eclectic mix of shops

The mother and daughter team make the courtyard feel at home. Everything they serve is cooked with Love. This is my special place. The staff is very friendly and and the prices are very very resonable. I insist this is a MUST visit when you're around. Keep up the good job guys.

A cafe worthy a visit if you are on those sides of the mountain. Meals worthy the value. Quick service and friendly staff.

for me, this is the best restaurant/cafe in Nanyuki. The atmosphere is relaxing, the staff friendly and welcoming. Best of all the food is fresh and delicious. The Beef Fajitas are the best I've ever had. Cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.
