Always full, that's a good sign that something is great. The service is always superb and the staff is friendly. But please stock up more choc chip cookie ice cream...as in nothing to run out of stock in the middle of the day. Will always visit.

Clean food for travelers downtown in Nairobi. Good for breakfast pancakes, waffles eggs and omelettes. Good quality hamburgers. Their salad selection is however questionable and of poor quality.

I must commend java for delivering consistant food and coffee, irrespective of which branch you eat at, the taste is the same. The only bad thing about it is how they always seem to increase there prices it seems insignificant but it all adds up....
