I absolutely love going to the Art Cafe establishments all over Nairobi. They are inviting and the staff are invariably smart, polite and can cut about. Coffee is good etc but the thing that you do not expect from a cafe is how good the food is - all of it - but especially the salads. The fragrances are fantastic... More

The new location at the oval plaza is the best location of all Artcafes . I had a great experience and would recommend the place to all business and leisure people visiting Nairobi . It gives you that restaurant experience especially on the outdoor sitting . The west gate view gave me a great topic to talk about with my... More

The male workers at the Thika Road mall artcaffe are a disappointment. That is all l will say. The food was okay and my wife and daughter loved the coffee.

I come here quite a bit and I like the ambience and food, however the service is painfully slow and inconsistent. Occasionally you'll get a good server who is attentive and prompt but lately I've been getting poor service. Food doesn't come with all sides. Cutlery comes slow. Especially when the restaurant is half empty. But the worse part is... More

Ordered multiple dishes only to find bean worms in one of the salads. As soon as, I noticed this I approached the manager only to be told they are sorry and can offer free dessert. After finding bean worms I was in no mood to eat anything in the restaurent. I requested to the "so called" manager that I would... More

Clearly most popular place to meet up for coffee or a good meal. Food is well presented and service is good. If not so hungry try the soup. Of the day or the roasted egg plant

This is a great place for good bread, sandwiches and tasty cakes. The ambience is friendly and the service is good, price is good for the quality of food offered. You can also take away your sandwiches and cakes and eat them on the go or at home. But if you want to have a leisurely chat with a friend... More

A nice relaxed vibe, good coffee and friendly servers. You could do a lot worse than to unwind at this chic cafe.
