“Good coffee and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Dorman's has a very hard act to follow. Directly opposite is the best coffee in Africa if not anywhere. I only came across this place when I was unable to find even one spare seat in the Java House. I was very pleasantly surprised. The coffee was very good and the meals that were served there were very good also

“The newly expanded Dormans in Karen - Cross Roads is really good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

This is one thing one proud thing that the Dormans have given Karen in Nairobi. Expanding the place giving more room and ofcos giving the best coffee in Kenya! I love the latte and cappuccino! Have it when you get there. Not forgetting the muffins if you love spoiling yourself once in while.

“Tea time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

This is a good place to catch a quick chat with a friend over a cup of coffee or tea. Its a little on the pricey side so please let them pay :-)

“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.
