Elegant and warm design you can eat fresh Italian food . There are always a lot of people due of the  renowned and you can use free wifi that is not negligible in Kenya where the wifi is a bit tricky .

“Best Hot Chocolate in the Country”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012

I really am a hot chocolate "addict" and when I have a really good cup of hot chocolate, that is enough to win my loyalty. ArtCaffe really make an effort to flavor their hot chocolate rather then serving you with plain milk and a container of Cadbury's Drinking Chocolate, as they do in many places including the prestigious Nairobi Serena Hotel. The best part about ArtCaffe is that you can get your hot chocolate or other beverages to go! Besides their hot chocolate, ArtCaffe is located in very conveniently (Westgate mall, Village Market) so that parking and security are not an issue. However, their food is very expensive and so I would recommend sticking to their "cafe" products such as coffee/tea/chocolate/fraps/pastry/etc. Furthermore, the atmosphere is very fitting to that of a cafe, and most of the times I've been there, they are almost always full.

“Especially nice if you are staying at Tribe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

Located just up the hill from Tribe hotel, in the mall. This place was recommended to us by some expats living in Nairobi, and most of our group were quite happy with the food. Pizza was great, but there were a few minor complaints about the pasta being tasteless. Sandwiches were also decent. Lots of smokers on the open terrace, so unless you enjoy smoke, eat inside.
