Description
Laughing Buddha Lounge and Café started in June 2009 with a unique concept of a Vegetarian Café serving fresh Eggless Cakes and Pastries and a mouthwatering menu of foods from around the world, alongside a boutique Hookah Lounge Bar. In a very short time, Laughing Buddha, or fondly known as LB became a popular brand amongst residents and visitors to Kisumu. On the top of our signature treats are the Sizzling Brownie, Grilled Sandwiches, Milkshakes and Mini Desserts. What was once a dream project to fulfill an everlasting passion for food and fine dining has now been ranked in Top Three in well-known travel guides and websites.
