Kenya Is Beautiful

As the name suggest. This is one place that the management has added something extra beyond just selling coffee. Its setting is great and It is a good place to meet and greet.

I wish there was more to say. I was here with business colleagues, some foreigners and we had already ordered and the drinks had arrived and therefore could not leave. Our food arrived 1.5 hours later and still got the order wrong. I am not going back. This was a second chance and I am officially out of the ArtCaffe... More

Very nice place to relax and enjoy a nice coffee or hot chocolate. The food is very nice and casual atmosphere and staff is very pleasant. Open air or inside you can have a discussion without having to raise your voice or have to listen to others at the table next to you. Only complaint is that outside they still... More

Fortunately this eatery is relatively easy to find in a weirdly configured VM shopping centre with great second floor in and outdoor patio seating areas. The service was great but my pasta dinner was 'ordinary' and for a staple the portion was disappointingly small. The signature beer was a great hit though as was the general ambience and aspect over... More

Whenever in Nairobi a must for me when I visit Village Market. Delicious food, fast and efficient service (my compliments to Justin) and great atmosphere. I have never experienced anything related to racism or so and we are always a mixed crowd of people. Will come again and again and again ...

We ate breakfast at the Artcaffe in the Yaya center and had a pleasant experience. Portions were huge and the bread and jam/condiments that accompany breakfasts were delicious, though the size is perhaps a little unnecessary given you also get a large breakfast main. The bacon & cheese waffle was not as good as hoped, being very large and quite... More

We had lunch here last week and both of our meals were fabulous! I had the chicken schwarma and my hubby had the beef fillet. The flavours on both meals were terrific. VERY tasty - good veggies done al dente, and service was attentive. We also bought bread and brownies to go - which were also wonderful. Would definitely go... More

Went here with a friend late Friday night and ate the pepper steak that was cooked as per spec. Totally spot on from the word go. The staff are more than willing to help and very polite. Too marks for the place and set up the perfect ambience. We were the last ones to leave and still no pressure at... More

Recently opened at Lavington Green, we were pleasantly surprised by the attentive service much unlike Art Cafe's other chains where the service is typically slow. The staff are extremely knowledgeable and go out of their way to accomodate different diets and tastes, which shows excellence on the management, chef and staff's part. The food was served quickly and without fault... More

The place has a good location and a good variety of food, the service goes according to the waiter that serves you, but overall the quality is there in food, drinks and pastry.
