This is a great cafe. I went to the one at Westgate. We had a delicious meal. It is a safe location with security, and the food is generally quite tasty.

I have been to Artcafe several times now and enjoyed every meal I have ordered. They have very good bread you can hy for take away and delicious chocolate croissants and desserts. A nice place to stop while shopping.

Art Café has got the pastry and bread department nailed. Great almond croissants (if they aren't sold out!), and some excellent breads. Coffee is good, internet is fast, place is always busy, and the meals are very well prepared. Very professional management. They do seem to struggle with staff. Some are outstanding, and others cannot be found. Good place to... More

Like a bit of Europe in the middle of Village Mall. (Helps there were also quite a few Europeans there.) Lovely atmosphere, very good food, beautiful bathroom.

The Veg lasagna is to die for and my partners choice of fish is just great. the ony downside is the cakes - we ordered a birthday cake but it was not so nice, yet the bakery seems to be their signature...

Good food, good coffee and a good selection of fresh juices in a delightfully decorated environment. (Wine and beer is also available). The Westgate branch is lovely, but very noisy inside and the service is often slow. The Village Market Branch is trendy, with better service,a brighter modern interior, and a bit quieter. Both branches have outdoor smoking tables.

Initially set in the Westlands mall (Nairobi's largest shopping centre) it has opened other branches in different parts of town (Gigiri, at the Village Market, and Junction Mall). My favorite one is in the Village Market (and, I guess, the owner's too, who is frequently there, directing service personally and exchanging views with the clientele). The terrace is the best...

This is a lovely eatery in the village market mall where you can dine in or sit on a veranda overlooking outside the mall. Their French fries are out of this world and the food comes out very fast. Ate there several times, their food is fresh, delicious and very well made and presented. Can’t wait to go back. Prices... More
