Swahili Friday

“A hearty breakfast, the Swahili way”

Brought to you by Sarova Stanley’s Thorn tree restaurant.

Located right in the CBD, every Friday morning you’ll have a chance to indulge in a “Swahili Friday” themed breakfast. Transporting you right to the beautiful scenes of coastal food and culture. With the likes of my favourite Swahili treats Mahamri, Mbaazi wa Nazi, Mandazi and much more delicacies from sweet to savoury.

Courtesy of the Sarova Stanley a few bloggers were invited to the launch of their all new Friday Swahili Breakfast that Chef Godfrey Ouda had created.

The Thorn Tree restaurant is the sort of foodie destination that fuses both history and food with a personal touch. Walking through the doors you’re welcomed with warm smiles, luxury and a touch of gold throughout the interior.

The Swahili Breakfast

As mentioned above the experience was a transportation to the coastal culture through the menu, Interior decoration and staff uniform. Which really added a nice pop of colour and personality to my Friday morning. I can’t say it did much for my Swahili though…. but I certainly enjoyed every minute of it.

Here’s  a series of images from my experience and I hope you give it a go too.


The Swahili Breakfast costs 2,500/- Ksh per person and is served from 6:30am – 10:00am every Friday.

A big thank you to the team at Sarova Stanley’s Thorn Tree Restaurant for a wonderful breakfast with great company and to you my readers happy dining.
