One feature of The Stanley is its famous Thorn Tree Café. This pavement café set back from the road has long been a meeting place for travellers passing through Nairobi. It was renowned for the massive Acacia thorn tree growing right in the middle of the cafe.
For years the trunk was used as a communal notice board, where messages were pinned up to arrange a rendezvous or convey an important message. Unfortunately the thorn tree had to be cut down a few years ago and travellers now have to find alternative ways to send their messages.
