A must go if you are in Nairobi. They are scattered throughout the city and if you're into your coffee then it's definitely a place to tick off. Far better coffee than many other places in the world and something they should be very proud of. Food wasn't mind blowing, but you go here for coffee first before food.

Very popular and nice place. There are several throughout the city. Hamburgers are great, and fish is very fresh. Very clean and modern place.

With a location downtown, a location at the primary hospital, a location outside the international terminal at the airport (for those long waits for those late night flights) and a location at Gate 14 in the international terminal, Nairobi Java has taken the Starbucks model of growth.

We went to the downtown Nairobi location to get some mochas. Although we didn't do "sit down" service, per se, there was one waitress (Evelyn I believe) who was especially helpful and treated us very well. The mochas were delicious, and it was a nice place to sit and relax for a bit. I would return

This is a solid place to go, where you know the standard of the food and the consistency of the service. It is not creative or mind blowing but always good and pleasant. I go to Java house once a week for their amazing coffee.
