“value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

may not make sense for Non-Kenyans but for the locals - do the maths. I normally take a light breakfast if having meetings. Double latte, 2 toasts and two eggs - Ksh 520. Let us look at cost of goods: Two eggs @ 25 is Ksh 50. Two bread slices @ 1ksh is ash. Coffee/milk etc 50 on the higher side. Total cost - Ksh 102. that leaves Ksh 448 as indirect cost and profit. The percentages are a bit frightening. Granted the location is good and the ambience as well. But one can also carry from home and meet in the office - will save you Ksh 1000 per meeting! I think we get ripped of under the guise of ambience. Food for thought.

“Java house near hospital”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Good quality food, can be trusted safe for foreigners. Adequate service. After 3 weeks without sugar or desserts, this American loved the chocolate fudge cake! (Even though i'm not much of a chocolate cake fan.) My new favorite is the iced lemon & ginger with honey.

“"Good food made real good"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

Excellent menu choice and service was good.Would definately come back. They should standardize their menus though so as to have the same quality food from all Javas in the chain.

“The best Java”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

For us, this is definitely the best Java in the chain. The menu is standard Java menu, coffee is great and huge, the staff is nice and the service is usually not slow. Toilets are reasonably clean. There is an inside part, an outside part and an inside part by the huge windows. Unlike many Javas, this one has wifi. The place is very spacious so it is never uncomfortably full and loud. The view is not much, but you can still sit outside and enjoy your meal, cup of coffee or chat.
