Opening dates should always be light, not more than an hour, and ideally should take place throughout the evening hours. Preparing for a coffee date is a great way to move from an online connection to face-to-face. As I go within Nairobi on my first dates, I have experienced some beautiful places which I am delighted to share with you as you embark on your first face-to-face date experience with your match.
1. The River Café Karura
A Very wonderful place for a first date. The cafe is excellent and convenient if you appear to be in Karura for a hike. Make sure you make the reservations on the weekend though, as it frequently fills up quickly. The food is similarly delicious and has friendly staff. The place has Beautiful views of nature.
2. The Mug
This place is outstanding as it is in the central business district but not too exposed. I would go here for coffee anytime when am in Nairobi. Their services are excellent not disremembering the level of ambience.
Location: Kaunda Street, Jubilee Exchange Building, opposite Lonroh House next to 20th Century Plaza.
3. Nairobi Java House ( Kimathi Street )
The atmosphere is pretty nice, it’s a fantastic place to hang out. I was there on a date out and it did not disappoint. Also the sandwiches have a very plentiful (and very well done) meat serving, it was amazing. The cost list is also very reasonable. I profoundly recommend it for a chilled out or casual date.
It’s a lovely chilled out joint. The Westlands stretch at night when you are seated there out on the balcony and it’s drizzling is definitely beautiful. Friday nights they have a real band playing salsa music which I observed to be pretty awesome.
5. About Thyme Restaurant
The ambience is excellent for a romantic coffee date, particularly at night. The level of service from their staff is also great. It can get a little bit of chilly at night because of the open city, so it’s advisable you dress warmly when going there.
6. Dormans Coffee Westgate
A good place to have your chilled twilight coffee with your match. The open restaurant gives it that sole feel. Their wifi is also free not forgetting their friendly staff.
