Noni Michelle is a restaurant entrepreneur running the 3 aunties in Nanyuki. She’s living her latest foodie adventure in Nanyuki where she shares her top spots to eat!
If you’re looking for the quintessential Nanyuki experience, Soames is the place to be. It in every way epitomizes the getaway experience. The food is a major plus courtesy of celebrated Chef James Dennis, who works with the best ingredients from the Laikipia region. My favourite dishes here are the Risotto of the Season and the Burguret Pork Chops served with seasoned creamy mash potatoes. Dessert is an absolute must and my go-to is the sinful Sticky Toffee Pudding.
Kitchen open Monday-Sunday 6am-till 10 pm.
You’ll find this gem right off the Nyeri Nanyuki highway. Owned by a Kenyan/ German couple, the food here is all about Kenyan flavours and the interior decor will transport you to a local Inn somewhere in rural Germany. The Nyama Choma here beats anything I’ve had anywhere in Kenya. Add a local beer or your favourite whiskey to cap it off.
Open Monday-Sunday 7am-till late.
I always get happy when I think about this place. All the love I have for pizza is manifested at this spot. It’s a non-profit restaurant whose proceeds go into teaching ordinary Kenyans vocational skills. The setup is a traditional pizza oven under a simple mabati structure in town. It’s a great place to meet up with a group of friends and munch on endless pizzas. Don’t forget to ask for a bottle of their homemade limoncello.
Open Saturdays 1pm-4pm.
Located in the heart of Nanyuki town, 3 Aunties is one of the cosiest spots you’ll come across for miles. We offer the heartiest Kenyan meals inspired by my aunties. Pork is an absolute crowd favourite here that is sourced from the organic Burguret Farm. Our Breakfast Bacon Frittata, Wet/Dry Fry Pork, Bacon Fries and Pork Burgers are all so full of flavour! It’s also the perfect place for a chat over Ksh 50 chai with pork samosas.
Open Monday-Saturday 7 am to 8 pm.
