“great kenyan coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

this place serves a great coffee and you can relax and have a good lunch there. It is a small chain but expect it to grow quickly as it seems to be the Kenyan equivalent to Starbucks

“Great kenyian coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

There are many around Nairobi, they serve kenyan coffee and you can also buy the coffee in bags if you have want it. I found the coffee and the service at the java house to be better then most other places around. We had lunch at one and the food was good.

“An absolute gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

I have now been to Nairobi on maybe 8 occassions. Every time I am blown away by the excellence of the coffee at this establishment. It is always packed and inevitably it is necassary to share a table with someone. This adds to, rather than detracts, from the experience. Service is brisk and efficient whilst still being pleasant.
Food is also well above average.

“Black Gold”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Want to drink the best coffee in the world, then this is where to go. The aroma of the coffee hits you as you enter the coffee house and that is just half the story because as you take your first sip of your coffee you know that you've found gold. This by the way is me describing just how i enjoyed my day out with friends and finished it with the best coffee i ever drank. try it when you visit Nairobi, am sure you'll love it.
