Published

Hood Moses Abeka

We visited The Sound Cup Cafe, after about two months of service. Located on Yusuf Lule Road at The Garden City Mall, third floor, right opposite Knights boutique, the cafe is worth the buzz its been receiving.

The cafe door flung open,the first thing you recognise is the outstanding curved 9 brick level wall that separates the working area from the cafe’s interior. On your left, just at the entrance, is a bookshelf with neatly stacked magazines, self help books, poetry books, financial and management journals, travel guides, a glass bowl of coffee seeds and flourishing potted plant next to the curved brick wall.

The most impressive bit of the book shelf was the inclusion of the day’s newspaper, which I found somewhat smart! On top of the curved brick wall is a 6 piece mural depicting famous live music celebrities of the old and new generation alike. Philly Bongoley, Herbert Kinobe and Joel Sebunjo. The portraits conveniently rise above eye level providing the much needed privacy to the chefs with the uncovered extreme end serving as the counter.

On your right are the large portraits of Kafeero, Elly Wamala, and a large rectangular mural of today’s live band acts prominently beams over the cafe on the wall . I recognised Irene Ntale, Benon, Myko Ouma, Susan Kerunen among others in the beautiful black and white mural over looking the spacious interior.

Music is the lifestyle here, It takes a central position. Two comfy cosy brown leather couches are at the back with all seats facing the brick left, four mahogany tables, stools and chairs are evenly distributed in the cafe and three more on the cafe’s outdoor space in the mall. A huge black fan hovers at the ceiling, spreading a romantic coffee aroma. Soft Music plays from a vintage Kombo box.

However, I was there in the busy afternoon, and Christmas songs from outside the cafe was too loud. I recognized antique camera and two pianos strategically placed on the wall behind the counter. It is no wonder that the proprietor, Maurice Kirya is a much sought after live band musician. He mastered the art of diversifying rewards from his passion , something most celebrities have overlooked.

THE MENU: The eight page menu book offers a great variety for a small cafe! There is something for everyone except booze. 2 sausages, omelet, grilled tomato served with toasted bread is served for breakfast at 11,000shs, a variety of omelet dishes range from 7,000shs to 10,000shs, there is meat, fresh juice for 5,000shs, Milk, Rolex at 10,000shs. Food is served fast and with generally huge chunks giving good satiety value. I ordered a glass of vanilla smoothie which was served with bread toast. A huge delicious glass made my afternoon. The prices are very generous and affordable for a expensive mall and quality offered.

THE AMBIENCE: Very convenient for the busy since sockets fitted, stimulating for couples and child friendly.

THE VIBE: ”When is Kirya coming over?’ ”Back in the States, cafes are like this”.

THE CROWD: abaSummer, children, corporates and whites.

CUSTOMER CARE: Service with a smile, the team is very keen and always came to my table, not knowing I was man on a mission. Though in black, the attire for waiters and waitress, Doreen’s smile, dressed her in colour.

Our sources indicate that Rema is not happy with fellow singer Jazmine for many reasons but most notably for feasting on her man. It is also said Rema and Jazmine cannot cross paths.

Over time it has been said Jazmine and Kenzo were having an affair but they both have always come out to deny. Well, Rema is bitter and has been cursing Jazmine and telling friends that Jazmine will feel her pain when she too finds a man of her own and is cheated on.
