Java Coffee

These Jave Houses are around every corner in Nairobi it seems. They are always good and the food is very consistent and at a decent price.

We had lunch there during our visit to Nairobi and went to one located in a Shopping Centre. We had a very good lunch, and the price was OK. They have nice ice creams too.

If you are sick & tired of the hustle & bustle, and just want to sit somewhere, have a good cup of coffee and utilize wi-fi, this is a wonderful place to go. There have been many times we were subject to a rolling blackout for days & the only way to charge the phones were to go to a... More

Nice environment and excellent coffee, to me the best in Kenya, pastry and service are also good. You can now get the same in Mombasa, also good, do not miss it.

I had a doctor's appointment on a saturday in the same building housing Java Upper Hill Medical and as I waited for my friend decided to have some brunch! The service was not up to par as it took the intervention of the duty manager/supervisor to get service but the omelette/home fries & toast were yummy when I was finally... More

A broad and tasty menu, if a little expensive. Service is generally very good too. Lots of outlets across Nairobi, they all seem to be the same high standard.

Went to Java house at ABC centre for lunch yesterday and was disappointed. As always it is very busy, but we had to ask a number of times for our drinks / ice. I had Masala Chips which were cold and the sandwich wasn't great. Used to go here alot for lunch, but maybe they have become too busy.

A nice meeting place for good coffee and food, avoid rush hours, ideal for a relaxed breakfast or brunch on a Sunday morning, a good choice of cuisine,nice informal ambiance for young and old.
