Discovering hidden gems in and around Nairobi is one of my favourite past time. So you can imagine my excitement after discovering Muna Tree Cafe nestled at Brackenhurst International Conference Centre which is in Tigoni – Limuru.
I had been planning a short out of town lunch or dinner date with bae but was looking for a place that’s not too pricey and far from the city. So when I came across the Muna Tree cafe offer in the 2017 DisCoucher book, I was sold.

Our date was on a Thursday and I made a reservation the day before for a late afternoon lunch, they informed me they are mostly busy on weekends. Told them I would be using my Discount vouchers from DisCoucher and it was a go.
Sometimes you just want to find a cosy spot to unwind, while enjoying a delicious meal over a great conversation with friends. Escape all the noise for a little peace and quiet. Brackenhurst which is a 30-minute drive from the city is that and more.
After surveying the cafe, we choose to sit outside at the gazebo area overlooking the entrance of the cafe enjoying the fresh air, the greenery, cool breeze and people watching. Muna tree cafe serves a simple à la carte menu. From an all day breakfast, a selection of burgers, pizzas, quesadillas, wraps, sandwiches, coffee and juices and milkshakes. They also do have a kiddie menu.
Initially, we just wanted to have their wood fired pizzas but we figured since we drove all the way down there and DisCoucher had two offers why not try both. One voucher offer was, buy one entrée get one free and the other buy one pizza get one free.

P.s they don’t serve alcohol. This is certainly not the best latte I have had but it was manageable. Their milkshakes with a shot of espresso were amazing. So good that my date had two.
From the entrées listed on the menu, my date ordered the chicken Kiev stuffed with spinach served with your choice of accompaniment either rice or fries.
I ordered the Lady’s steak – a beef fillet, fries and a delicious side salad. Forgot to specify how I wanted my fillet done and the waitress never asked so I received it well done. Could have enjoyed it better if it was medium or rare. But it was tender and they had seasoned it perfectly. The rosemary married so well with the whole dish, and the savoury salad finished it off just right.
For the wood fired oven pizza, we ordered the BBQ chicken (pictured). The toppings were chicken with crumbled bacon, fresh onions, mozzarella cheese and Muna’s sauce. Bae ordered a delicious Turkey pizza topped with the obvious chunks of Turkey, red bell peppers and scallions. NOTE the pizzas are only available from Thursday to Sunday
Fact: Muna Tree Cafe prices are very friendly. The most expensive item their menu was Sh850 in both the pizza and entree section. A cappuccino is like Sh200, smoothies Sh300. We only paid for one pizza which was Sh850 and for chicken kiev which was Sh800. We saved Sh1550.
