Stop here for a quick sandwiches on our way to Meru. The service was swift but the sandwiches are not worth the price we paid. Anyway good place to stop for a quick lunch since there are no many places to go to.

The coffee shops in Kenya are generall pretty good and Dormans mostly is no exception. One thing I have noticed though is quite often I get a latte that tastes like the milk has been diluted. This has happened in Karen mostly but in Junction yesterday. When I asked them to change it they poured some out, added more milk,... More

To compensate, they brought another late, which was terribly, terribly, terribly sweet (to "compensate" for my complaint as well? I do... More

Dorman's has the best coffee in Kenya, no matter what location. The staff in all its locations is so helpful and nice. Great breakfasts also.

I was in shock with my experience at Dormans opposite International House. This was in Sept 2013. The service is poor. I returned to the counter severally to ask for cutlery and then to pay my bill as the wait service was just lustre and gave no attention. Young people who are not alert. At the counter I cannot get... More
