“Nairobi's Panera...with better coffee.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

I stopped at Dormans for lunch in in mid-June. I ordered the caprese sandwich and a coffee. The place and menu reminded me a lot of a Panera Bread with an African flavor. The sandwich was pretty good, especially at about $4. The coffee was great! Of course, when the coffee is picked and roasted within 50 miles of where you drink it, it should be good. The place was very busy, and the staff was swamped, but they were pleasant. Overall, I'd like to return.

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

The food is always great, staff polite and responsive.

I especially love the strawberry smoothies and the paninis. A good place to catch up with a friend.

“My "go-to" breakfast joint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

This is my favorite place to have a quiet breakfast right in town.

The Pemba Latte Machiato is my favorite along with their healthy breakfast - Muesli soaked in yogurt, drizzled with honey & with some fruit topping. The food is also always good..& same goes to their snacks.

I like the place since its quiet, cozy & service is always great.

“Excellent Coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Dorman's has the best coffee in the City centre of Nairobi. They also serve the best English Brownies. It is a good place to get a taste of simple English food at a reasonable price. The space is small, but the coffee and brownies compensate for this
