Though Art Cafe is a coffee shop and a restaurant but they are also a great place to buy bakery from. They are a chain in Nairobi and Mombasa but they were able to sustain their touch in every restaurant of theirs. The food is always good as a quick meal. Pizza options are wide and nice. It is a...

Art Cafe opened a new branch at Oval - a new building in Westlands not far from Westgate. The atmosphere is really good although the first time we went there, we were not able to get any food as they had a problem with their gas system. It is a nice for Sunday brunch or in the evenings for drinks... More

The restaurant has nice ambience. Got there just before it got the busy lunch rush, even on public holidays!!! Received well and ushered to a table quickly. I enjoyed my first order of a capucchino milkshake. As I waited for my company nothing too interesting was going on. No concern for any other order shown. We waited a long while... More

The new one at Oval in Westlands is a really nice design and layout. Great for brunch, service is relaxed, but efficient, food is good. An ideal location if you need to catch up with your online life/work. The lamb burger is to die for, great balance of flavours, portions are a good size bordering on a little bit too... More

My friends and I went to Junction Mall for the Friday market to bargain for tourist items. After our shopping we were really happy to eat at the Art Cafe for lunch. They have a lot of vegetarian options. I ordered the eggplant appetizer and then veggie cakes which is just a different name for falafel. Both were excellent. One... More

My wife and I often eat here because we get a decent meal. The service is good for Nairobi and the place is clean. We like to sit on the balcony but beware of the large volume of cigarette smokers. The menu has many offerings and the food is served timely, well cooked and tasty. They could turn the piped... More
