I enjoyed both lunch and brunch here (at the branch at The Oval). The food at Artcaffe is some of the best European-style food I've had in Nairobi - the prawn starter is amazing and the pizzas are delicious (if you like spicy food, go for the one with the green chilies). The drinks are also excellent, with delicious fresh... More

Try the prawn appetizer. Yum! Also you must have the snapper, which is great. My kids love the pizzas.

Art cafe is a clean, efficient andconfotable cafe. It's easy to get a good meal and not pay too much. The staff is great with kids and the menu has something for everyone. But in my view art cafe has the best bread products in town. The coffee is good as well.

I enjoy going here quite often. The service is always spot for me. They pay attention to you and will sit you where you would like. By that I mean outside or inside. Next to a socket or anything specific you would be interested in. The food is good though I tend to order either the pasta or the deserts... More

Mostly an expat mall hang-out (not too many locals can afford the fare) that is consistent in delivery at its different locations in Nairobi. It has a pleasant atmosphere and the food is safe for foreign digestive tracts. Portions are adequate but really the food is nothing special. It is a place at a mall for a quiet cup of... More

This was one of my favorite places to come during my two year stay in Kenya. Free wifi, comfy environment, great coffee and food. Be aware of Kenyan culture, which explains the slowness, and large groups will have to clarify orders... but when you do get your food, it's going to be delicious.

I used to visit Art Cafe Junction almost daily and honestly, the standards have recently gone down too much time, the new lady managers (two of them are not the professional type Ella and Alphonse made us used to...although alphonse still shows up). Food quality also has become unpredictable. I used to like Art Cafe because you new what you... More

The service was pretty slow ,with drinks taking an average of 15 minutes and food 30 min . The supervisor had the audacity to say that it was a crazy day when prompted about the delay. The lentils were stale n lamb kebabs Dry .
