Long layover

Because we missed our connecting flight we had breakfast and dinner here. The staff was great to us. Warm and friendly. On our way back again we stopped. Very friendly.

Easily accessible from both terminal sales, between gates 14 and 15. Beer, wine, soft drinks,sandwiches, Saldana etc on the menu. I had a thai beef salad which whilst far from authentic was fresh and tasty. The ice cream was good. It was busy even at 11pm. Expect to have to share your table if you are a solo diner.

I visited this establishment, while waiting for flight from JKI airport. The service was very good - and the menu was typical coffee shop fare. I ordered a roasted turkey and cheese sandwich. The sandwich was good - a very large portion, but was not memorable! A colleague of mine ordered the beef and mango wrap 0 which was surprisingly... More

The coffee and cakes are as good as all the Java outlets, but because of the size of the outlet, and the number of customers this cannot be described as a pleasant experience! Expect to queue, don't bother trying to sit down and eat a meal, but grab take away and wander back to your gate! Then it works just... More

Been there twice while transiting over Jomo Kenyatta Int'l airport. Easily accessible at gate no. 14. Had a perfect blend of coffee twice. Even visited Sarit Centre cafe too. Their ambience is special and best of the East-African airports. Will share some pics in my upcoming visit.

A friend had recommended The Java House as a must layover refresh spot. We were blown away by their amazing Samosas, smoothies, french fries and coffee drinks. A travelers must !

After 2 weeks building a school in Bogani, it was a nice way to re-introduce ourselves back into the world of hustle & bustle. Staff was friendly & helpful. Great way to spend some time before the start of a long flight home!

The Java House is a restaurant bar next to Gate 14. The airport is sadly lacking in decent choice. Apart from the Java House, there appeared to be one other patisserie type outlet (next door). Given you're a bit of a captive audience, it wasn't too bad at all. They sell beer in bottle or draft and have a very... More
