Busy, but necessary!

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... read 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

Although this location was incredibly busy, the orders were all done correctly by friendly baristas. The coffee was wonderful and I guarantee I will be grabbing a cup to go on my next flight home from Nairobi!

Best place to hang out at the airport, but it is overcrowded and I noted that some staff were rather sloppy, they also are too few for the crowds. I saw quite a few clients complaining that the beer was not cold. Overall, service, selection, hygiene and quality below other branches.

I have eaten here a number of times when travelling and the staff are fast and efficient and the food is awesome. Puts the fun into travelling and I do look forward to sitting down for a cup of coffee and a great meal on my next trip. Thumbs up, give it a try!
