Dormans Nanyuki Branch

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.

Milkshake was great thick and creamy however the first club sandwich turned up with a long black hair across the sandwich so it got sent back and 5mins later a "fresh" plate came out sans hair! Chips we're go and sandwich was ok though the service left a... More

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

The place is small and it was very, very crowded and laud, not possible to hear the person next to you talking... I ordered a late with cardamon and, to my surprise, I got a tea bag in it. 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.

To be honest Kenyan coffee is great wherever you go and Dormans no exception. I felt that the espresso was exquisite and would recommend it. If you are a short tempered person, dont order anything besides coffee.
