“Great ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Had dinner here with friends. Sat outside on a warm night and it was great (although a tad busy). The pizza's were the best, with dessert coming in at a close second.

“Relaxed In and Outdoor breakfast lunch and dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

This is my favorite place for early breakfast till late lunch in Nairobi, both solo and with others. Good place to meet other people, both business and leisure, as well. Quality is consistent across their branches and across time. I like the pizzas, the Egg Benedict, the schnitzels, the sandwiches, the fresh mango juice, etc. Espresso is mostly of good quality. Take-away bread and bakery are good as well. Staff is plenty and usually friendly, specifically as management is mostly on top of the restaurant floor. Service is efficient so usually no long waiting times. Also easy place to spend a half-day working, branching up the laptop and enjoy the vibrant atmosphere. Because they are now present in almost all commercial areas in Nairobi, you will not be too far away from the nearest one. Every time that I am back in Nairobi, Art Caffe is my first day breakfast...

“Free Wifi at Artcafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

with free wifi, its a good place to stop off for a breakfast while catching up with the rest of the world. The breakfasts are great value and the pumpkin pizza is great. The staff generally leave you be, and the coffee is good. A bit on the pricey side, but you get to see the world go by on the terrace (albeit westlands traffic)

Four of us had planned a meeting at the Artcaffe. Although full the waiters made arrangements to have to twoseater tables put together for us. The first time I hada good Pizza in Nairobi. Nice coffee too. The Croissants were excellent. The ambiance good not too noisy but lively. Lots of young people and others having meetings too!

“Great pastries, pizzas, and drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Consistently good food and service in Nairobi. The pizzas are great and the cocktails are well made. A popular spot with the expat and local crowd alike. Service has always been attentive and prompt.

It is our go-to spot for pizza and margaritas.
