I like it here.

I have used Junction Java a few times the last couple of weeks and I tend to aim for it when in Nairobi. The coffee (Latte) is really good and they do a good choice of coffee, Kenyan Tea etc. The cakes and lemon and lime meringue pie are good and this mornings bagel (for Bits more of a croissant)... read more

We eat frequently in the numerous Java coffee houses around Nairobi, and were never disappointed - neither by the quality of food, or of service, nor by prices. One in the Nairobi JKAirport, has, by the way less complete menu than the places in town. It is still, our preferred option in the Airport.

We stopped by @ this café on the Airport because we had heard horror stories about the Lounge in the Nairobi airport. Much to our surprise, the service was impeccable, the food tasted yummy and we enjoyed a nice time sitting outside and enjoying our time before we checked in. The only pity is that, considering the high-prices (according to... More

Tried various locations and enjoyed the coffee + food is consistent in each branch. Simple, cheap and good value for money.

Food is ok, service is standard, but this is one of the few restaurants with a play area and fairly more consistent WiFi.

Great new place around the corner with good ( albeit unfinished ambience). Service is still Java standards aka GOOD. Biggest challenge is parking & you owe yourself a cup of coffee if you get one without hassle. Taxi drop off makes most sense. Good thing is to see such a prime place put into good use. Keep it up Java😎

This is a nice place for having a cup of coffee, some juice and a cake (cakes are pretty sweet, though). I prefer the no sugar-added juices - excellent and always fresh!

It is extremely to get a seat since they no longer have a waiter to direct customers at the entrance especially in the facility in the ground floor. The service is very slow and customers have to go and pay in the counter if in a hurry. The waiters uniform is wanting and the T shirts are faded and must... More

If you want a hearty English breakfast without paying too much, then Java is the best bet. The eggs & omelettes are freshly cooked accompanied with bacon or sausages & tomato slice & toasted bread. Other recommendations on menu, are the mexican dishes. Java is perfect for a quick, tasty business lunch or early morning breakfast with in-house Java's freshly... More

Amazing coffee house. Modern chic ambiance and superb quality. Great service and the perfect balance between price and quantity. By far, the best coffee in town.
