“Drinks and lunch at Artcaffe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

I visited the Artcaffe on 2 occasions and enjoyed it both times. The menu was varied and the staff were very friendly and helpful - despite the fact that the restaurant was always crowded. It has a good, lively atmosphere and seems to be the ideal meeting place for friends and business aquaintances alike. It is nice to get a table outdoors, so one can do a bit of "street watching"! Portions are sizeable (we had the chicken escalope) and we shared a jug of sangria, which was delicious!

“Favorite place in Nairobi to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

They have everything here. The pizza, the grilled haloumi salad and the Parmesan avocado sandwich are ALL amazing. The prices are reasonable, the coffee is good, the drinks are cold. They have good desserts here and the bread is amazing. Oh, there is free internet...so you can work all day...

Overall, a staple go to place.

“A great place to 'be' - an absolute 'must' for any discerning visitor, expat, resident or fun seeker”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

The Art Cafe chain of coffee bars & patisseries is an established meeting point and chill-out spot for any discerning traveller, resident, expat or even business meeting. Westgate and Village Market are my preferred venues but you will find a level of service and quality of food hard to equal elsewhere in Nairobi. It's a great place to 'be' whether you're 'the day after', meeting friends, malinconico/gloomy or even sad - it's a good place to mingle even make new frends/acquaintances, dine well and even recover your lost drive and energy! Don't forget to pick up a loaf of exquisite and genuine bread and cakes on the way out. "Enjoy' as they nowadays keep telling you!

“Good Selections + Wi-Fi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

A good place to spend a lazy weekend morning / afternoon, reading a book or meeting friends. There are 2 branches - one in Westgate mall and another at the Junction mall.
