“Nice Coffee House”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

I must commend java for delivering consistant food and coffee, irrespective of which branch you eat at, the taste is the same. The only bad thing about it is how they always seem to increase there prices it seems insignificant but it all adds up....

“Great place to meet friends and grab coffee or lunch.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

The downtown Java House is always filled to the brim and bustling, so get there a bit early if you want lunch!

“Fantastic coffee, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2011

First off--the fresh-roasted coffee at this unique domestic coffee shop is amazing. Many times, origin countries export all their best coffee beans and do not maintain good roasting standards. While Kenya is one of those countries, Java House is an exception. I am a coffee nerd and this was some of the best I've tasted!

Its location in a gas station is off-putting at first, but you get over it. The food was pretty good and the atmosphere (near the U.S. Embassy and UN compound in Gigiri) was hard to beat. Highly recommended.
