Want to share your latest story while having a bite and a good coffee. This is the place. I think most here run on Avgas and not Oxygen

We had about 50 of us stop for lunch before heading into Maasai Mara. You can dine out in the gardens on picnic benches and just watch the planes take off. Great food, service and a very unique experience. Highly recommend (and with wifi too!).

If you're early for your flight, much better to spend your time here with good food then in a waiting area with vending machines.

A lovely spot to have a snack and a drink while waiting for a flight. There is a memeber's section which is not open to the public and then an area where one can eat.
