“Great Coffee and Snacks and Nice Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

I have often visited Dorman's at Nakumatt I've always found the coffee to be superb. I sometimes buy it to drink at home, I don't eat the snacks but my guests love them. The staff is very kind and polite. They are always very helpful. The seating is very comfortable. Dorman's is a very worthy competitor to Artcafe and Java House. I love meeting friends here.

“Superb coffee & bitings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Dormans serve excellent coffee anytime I've been (almost as good as ArtCaffe) and the snacks are lovely too.Have most frequently had the Chicken Pesto & Chips and it's always good. They do good pastries too.In line with ArtCaffe & Java they have free Wifi which is a real boon.

“Good place to take a snack”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

After driving for more than six hours we stop for a snack, and Dormans was a good decision. I didn't try the coffee, but the pineapple juice and the sandwich were perfect....also, very clean, free Internet and excellent customer service. I found it a little bit pricey for Kenya standards, but it was good for me.
I really recommend it.

“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.
