Always great for coffee and snacks

You can't go wrong with visiting any of the Java's either at the airport, ABC, Gigiri or wherever. Reasonably priced, tasty food and a good range of drinks. I like the fresh lemonade.

What started as an American style coffee house has now become embedded in Kenyan urban culture. Java coffee houses have managed to maintain quality and consistency to perfection. The service, the style, the meals are always a treat. From a host of freshly brewed kenyan coffee done however you like, to tempting pastries, ice cream delights, ice teas, huge sumptuous... More

This is a very good Coffee house that serves a variety of foods and a pretty good Milk Shake (if you are into Milk shakes) thick and creamy the old fashion way. The restaurant is always packed, people use it for lunches, meetings or just a connecting point before or after shopping. The service is very good to excellent. It's... More

Amazing - Dont know why people complain there is pork on the menu. Kenya is multi-cultural not an Islamic Sate. Pork Chops and steak are amazing. Even the pies.. Greta Cafe... Keep it up Java

I love coffee, especially real Kenyan coffee! I love tea, that unbeatable Kenyan tea. Put them in one roof, iI'm confused for choice. Coffee or Tea? Gourmet coffee, hand roasted, daily, in small batches is just the right coffee, however you take it. At the Java establishments, coffee ceases to be a beverage, hot or cold, it becomes an experience.... More

I often visit the java chain of restaurants and are so happy to see so many branches opening in various corners of the city of Nairobi. Their servings are bountiful and we'll prepared. The salads are mwaaaah! If you you want to snack, they have the biggest samosa I have seen and it is really tasty. Fills you up pretty... More

Java coffee is probably the best coffee you can get around in nairobi. This place also doubles up as a restaurant which serves quick bites. It has a very relaxing ambiance and exclusive wall paintings which gives its clientele a warm welcome. I have visited a good number of their branches in nairobi, mombasa and nakuru and customer service at... More
