Great breakfast good ambience fair prices

Each time I come to Kenya I try to fit in a meeting at a Java House. The airport Java House is not complete but 5 other locations that I've tried have all been good. Today I was at ABC plaza for a late breakfast with colleagues who live here. The Denver omelet with extra Chillies was very good... read more

When you're traveling abroad, every once in a while you want to have some recognizable comfort food. I brought two of my daughters to this Java House when we were in Nairobi. It's like a cross between Starbucks and Panera Bread. Good sandwiches, good drinks, including milkshakes. Indoor and outdoor seating.

The Nairobi Java House is a must. They serve the best local java coffee and tea. I will also recommend their lemon ginger tea and the apple pie.

The airport in Nairobi is notoriously crowded and cramped with nothing except row after row of duty free shops that have almost the same items. It was so nice to see a Java House in the airport where we had a fresh sandwich and a drink while waiting for our flight.

If you don't find the beautiful Java House for a meal, then you've missed out...especially...on their Brunch. MAKE reservations!

My first visit to a Java House in Nairobi was several years ago when my Kenyan host took my wife and I to a Java House. Ever since we have enjoyed the food, the milkshakes, and the friendly service. Although you will find many Americans and Europeans at the Java Houses, the Kenyans also frequent them, so there is universal... More

the outdoor themed seating and the mini inside lounge blend in meticulously to create one warm and relaxing atmosphere. I work near the place and so frequently hold my meetings there. great food, super service and a lively atmosphere. Occasionally parking can be a challenge..Keep it up though!

My best friend took me here as I had heard so much about this chain of coffee houses - amazing coffees and milkshakes. Try the giant chocolate chip cookies. Went in the evening and the vibe was amazing.
