Very good coffee

Very good coffee eventhough its a bit pricy. Got one near work so I go often. Not a bad place for lunch either but to keep it in the business end of things. Its a place you go for breakfast in the weekend or for lunch during the week but nothing special overall, nver for dinner.

Java is not only a good chain of cafés where I usually go for a fast meal, but also the place where to buy the best ground coffee from Kenya or Ethiopian highlands. Free wifi attracts quite a few patrons who come with their laptops and hang out over a cup of tea or a double-espresso milkshake (delicious!). A variety... More

Java theis an addictive brand! Once you taste their service, you just want more. The thing about Java is that they are always taking their game a notch higher with every new outlet they open yet you still feel at home at all their outlets. The new outlet off Mara Road in Upperhill is great and very spacious. HOWEVER, they... More

The Sarit Centre is located up the Westlands. The Java House here is on the ground floor, around to the left from the main entrance. There is some seating outside along the corridor, and a lovely restaurant. The food and drinks are excellent and the staff were friendly and efficient. Java House was my favourite eatery in Nairobi and the... More

coffee is good, good kid's menu, quesadillas are a little greasy but come with good guacamole. the milkshakes are tasty, and they make excellent carrot cake. Have visited about 12 times without ever getting sick from food poisoning, which must be a record for me in Nairobi.
