“Kenyan coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

We had to buy coffee beans and bring it home to NY. We always stopped at the Java House and even got my son a Java t-shirt for souvenir

“Excellent Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

It was great having a business lunch there.

We had no reservations but we got a table of four.

The hostess was great and the service really quick.

I will definitely come back again

“Excellent for coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

What I love about java is that all their outlets have the same quality of food. Their milkshakes are to die for double mocha is thick and has a rich chocolatey coffee taste. Try their pancakes with maple syrup dusted with castor sugar and strawberries. This a great place for a Sunday brunch or an early breakfast

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

I recently visited Nairobi and as I had a extremely good experience in Uganda at Cafe Javas, I was under the impression that Java House Coffee ship was the same, but only on arrival realised it is not. We went to the Capital Centre, Mombasa Road branch and the first thing that set me off was that the menu had pork, so that made it a no-no being muslim, so no meals to be had there.

We then decided to get some take out cappuchino but that is not the same as sitting down and having it in a glass cup!

With more visits to Kenya planned in the future, I will certainly have to look for an eating place other than coffee

“Nice place for coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Nice and secure place in the business area of Nairobi where you can have a very good cup of coffee and a pastry or even a meal.
I go to Kenya almost every year and every time I go to Java for a cup of coffee...
