“Great coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

I regularly visit the Java Coffee House at ABC Place in Nairobi. The out door ambience is great in warm weather. Their capuccinno, salads and black forrest cake are great. They do have the best Milkshake in Nairobi.

“Coffee is pricey but good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

I like the atmosphere. Service is slow but friendly. Coffee is of great quality. Asking 80 sh for a shot of vanilla is excessive though.

“Fantastic cakes!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

Not too much of a fan of the food, except the cheese pie, and the pancakes. The service is ok, at times rather disappointing.

However, the Carrot Cake, Chocolate Fudge cake is outstanding! The best i have sampled in this country..

“Great coffee and pastries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

I look forward to visiting Java House when I visit Nairobi. On this trip I ate at the Java House on Limuru road several times. Java House has a wide assortment of coffees, pastries, milkshakes and teas plus a complete breakfast, lunch and dinner menu. I enjoyed the fish and chips for dinner one night and the fish curry another night. After spending time in other areas of Africa that don't have a place like Java House, it was a treat to enjoy the great food at Java House.
