“Average food, spotty service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

There are java locations all around Nairobi and the food is pretty consistent throughout. They have an amazing honey, lemon, and ginger drink that cures all ails

My biggest gripe is that they've started serving pretty small portions, particularly for lunch. Also, the service can sometimes be really bad, but I think this varies from location to location.

“Good Food and Coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

It is great for those who want to get their Western Fix. Great coffee and food--burgers and more. Only downside is that they close at 9 pm. Downer for those working late.

“Great for iced coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

I have to say this place is one of the best places in the world to have an iced coffee.
The fact they give you liquid sugar (it is so helpful) give it a go if you pass one.
They also have free wi-fi

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

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.
