One of those few place that come to my mind when I want to have descent meetings on weekday evenings while washing down the ideas with rounds of hot coffee! The location, setting and service is on point.

My sister said it was the only decent coffee she had when she was in Kenya. We ended up eating there a lot for lunch on her coffee runs. The tomato soup was fantastic.

There are a number of them to be found in Nairobi. Great coffee, all the international options available. Excellent coffee, but be warned: you will be paying European prices!

Java has excellent coffee and if one is a fast food lover, this is the place to go. The service is always slow here and there is room for improvement.
