“Good for meetings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

The cheesecake was a bit heavy, but the coffee was good. As for ambiance, well, its in a shopping mall, but that seems to be the form these days - and at least there is an outside balcony, even if it overlooks ... the car park! Its a little pricey, I think, but given how busy it is, that doesn't seem to bother most people.

“Meh”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

So, the selection is confusing to be very honest. I went there to have a quick coffee as i waited to meet a friend. First, i have never used the 'free wifi' they say they have! What the hell! It was down the entire time and every other time ive been there before. Then i ordered what i thought would be an easy order, coffee and a pastry. Well i waited an hour! My friend came and we sat waiting! So after asking for the waiter 5 times, they just ignored me until finally i go my order. The food was nothing special. And after i was done, the bill took just as long! Tisk tisk!
I wasnt impressed

“Superb sangria and desserts, average food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

Soothing ambience and well maintained outdoor sitting, Artcaffe is a nice place to chill whether you are alone or with friends!

In Drinks do try Red Sangria, it is amazingly smooth and in Desserts, try out apple pie which is heavenly, served with whip cream and banana chip, you won't feel like sharing it with anyone else :) Food is average and ordinary and i think a bit overrated. Service is a bit slow, at times you need to wait for 10 mins before the waiter approaches you for order.

“I love the muffins and the chic set-up!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

I have had coffees and muffins at various of their branches countless times. Indeed they are among the best & trending restaurant concepts in Kenya today popular with the elite crowd. Great setting with modern finishes accentuates just that...the meals are equally great! I just love the way they do their stuff. Lovely!
