“Excellent Coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Dorman's has the best coffee in the City centre of Nairobi. They also serve the best English Brownies. It is a good place to get a taste of simple English food at a reasonable price. The space is small, but the coffee and brownies compensate for this

“Its ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

I have always perceived Dormans to be a transit stop - I normally find myself there is waiting to meet someone. It has never been my first option for food or drink but I will have something to eat or drink if I find myself there.

“They should up their game and match up with the Java!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

I am a regular customer and whereas they have good service,they are yet to reach the standards found at their closest competitor next door,Java.
However,at least one can find a seat any time at Dormans as it is less crowded.

“The best Capuccino's in Nanyuki”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

Decaf capuccino, morning glory muffins and most of all the staff are really amazing in Nanyuki!! Dormans Airkenya is another must when you are travelling to and fro or just simply passing by
