“Good coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Nice environment and excellent coffee, to me the best in Kenya, pastry and service are also good.
You can now get the same in Mombasa, also good, do not miss it.

“Great Brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

I had a doctor's appointment on a saturday in the same building housing Java Upper Hill Medical and as I waited for my friend decided to have some brunch! The service was not up to par as it took the intervention of the duty manager/supervisor to get service but the omelette/home fries & toast were yummy when I was finally served! I find the taste of their tea keeping changing though, not the best I've tasted! They have wonderful minty pineade juice great in this hot weather.

“Best Cafe Food in Kenya”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

A broad and tasty menu, if a little expensive. Service is generally very good too. Lots of outlets across Nairobi, they all seem to be the same high standard.

“Standards Starting To Slip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Went to Java house at ABC centre for lunch yesterday and was disappointed. As always it is very busy, but we had to ask a number of times for our drinks / ice. I had Masala Chips which were cold and the sandwich wasn't great.

Used to go here alot for lunch, but maybe they have become too busy.

A nice meeting place for good coffee and food, avoid rush hours, ideal for a relaxed breakfast or brunch on a Sunday morning, a good choice of cuisine,nice informal ambiance for young and old.
