“Great improvement!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The fish is very good, tartar sauce is decent, carrot cake is divine... coffee is freshly brewed... Lil more choice on the menu in terms of choice would be good.

“Nothing to write home about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

A chain of fast food restaurants and coffee shops just like others in Nairobi. Was a change from the few older coffee places in Nairobi when its started but has become a bit complacent and 'deja vu' over the years. OK for q quick meal and some (cold) coffee but not worth a detour since there are many other such places in Nairobi offering the same these days.

“Western style, comfortable place to take a break from busy Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

It's a great oasis in a busy city. I had a bran muffin which was amazing and an iced coffee which was....not so amazing. Overall, it's super clean and a great place to go when you (you are an expat, aren't you?) need a "break" from the chaos of Nairobi.

“Real Kenyan Coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

For the taste of the real freshly brewed Kenyan coffee go Java Coffee House.
You will really enjoy the coffee. Lovely cheese cakes, carrot cakes and even brownies. For a light meal try the green salads. Java coffee houses are located all over the city.
Good for relaxing and catching up. Prices are fair

“Good food for day-to-day meals, subs, salads”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Great place to have a "safe" meal with no african surprises. There is really nothing superb in the food, but it is all very tastety. It is a great place for a salad, sandwich, coffee, tea, cookies, etc. Has free wifi and a good atmosphere.
