Sweet Mart In Down Town Nakuru

In Dec of ’07 and Jan of ’08 a group and I landed in Nairobi. After a three hour car ride we reached our home away from home for the next two weeks, Nakuru Kenya.
For the next two weeks the group and I worked at a school. We were thrilled to be there and be with the kids. If you reread the dates we were there, you would know what an interesting time that was.
The days after the elections things were normal in Nakuru, as was most of our time there. In our minds there was one day that was GREAT. We went down town for the day. Walked about for a bit and meet up with people from the school and had a great lunch. There is so much more to the trip but I wanted to tell you how great our lunch was!
There is a place called Sweet Mart in Down Town Nakuru. If you are hungry and nearby it is a must. The staff was friendly and helpful. Most of the group was undecided on what to order and the staff helped them decide and there was not one unsatisfied costumer. I highly recommend the Masala Burger with Chips and a Black Current soda.
Our time in Kenya was at a time of unrest in their democratic history. We saw things that made us feel like we where in a movie and our hearts were aching for those around us. But, we needed to be and our time at Sweet Mart was the icing on the cake. From that afternoon on every time we ate there it was going to be our local cafe. They knew our names and we were like family.
If you are staying in Nakuru for holiday, safari or even just passing through, Sweet Mart is the place to eat! Go in and take a break from the things you have to do. Enjoy a Black Current or a Coca-Cola. Just know you will enjoy your meal and meet amazing people!
