You want the very good milkshake and a good meal, this is the place to go to. Doesn't matter which one, they're all simply amazing. But the staff in Java Nyali are the best guys I've ever come across. Specifically Stephen ( I hope I got the name right)

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.

Java Coffee House opened a new branch in Kisumu city at the West End Mall.Great ambiance and service and I end up there a lot. This week I ordered a cheeseburger for lunch. They messed up my order and gave me guacamole. After a 20 minute wait they gave both me and the lady sitting next to me frozen steaks... More

Java = GREAT STEAK! From their menu, all different types of steak is good. But don't go for anything else, because thats where they mess up! The ambiance is great, customer service is even better. I always make my way there for their steak, regardless of which branch I go to, the same is taste is preserved.

Java has the best coffee available and prompt service levels. We usually end up going 3-4 times a week. Food is fairly priced and its definitely value for money. They have a couple of coffee shops located strategically all over nairobi Menus have a wide selection of Breakfast, Lunch and Pastries etc. Chocolate Fudge cake and cappuccino are our favourites!...

Java has always been the leading coffee shop chain in Nairobi and are housed in major malls around Nairobi.As a connoisseur of the Java coffee brand, I must say their standard is the same across all their units. There has been rival coffee shops opening around the city but Java's trained staff especially with quick service and attention to detail... More
