“Great coffee but thats about it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013 via mobile

To be honest Kenyan coffee is great wherever you go and Dormans no exception. I felt that the espresso was exquisite and would recommend it. If you are a short tempered person, dont order anything besides coffee.

“Not a fan”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

The selection was really limited considering its a coffee shop. Then the worst thing happened. I ordered a chocolate chip milkshake. That is by far one of the worst shakes i've had. The pastry took ages and the staff weren't too serviceable when i reminded them of my order.

“Great Place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Almost as good as Java House but not quite there. I did enjoy the Carrot cake and loved the Ice coffee.
The environment was not as nice as the previous, but it was still a nice place to sit eat and talk to people.

“Better off going to Java”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

The coffee sizes seem smaller than Java and when I went for lunch was given a menu and when I tried to order was told the only thing available was tuna sandwich. Seemed pointless giving me a menu to look at when there was only one item available. Left without ordering food.
