“Fast Food lovers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

Java has excellent coffee and if one is a fast food lover, this is the place to go. The service is always slow here and there is room for improvement.

“Nice place to chat over a coffee or two! :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014 via mobile

I was visiting my brother for a while who was working near Nairobi and we went in Java a few times. Its a bit of a ex-pat hang out and I found myself wanting to go somewhere a bit more local...
I guess it is a bit like going to starbucks or any of the other chain coffee places in the UK.
But it was a great atmosphere and there are a couple in Nairobi I think.

“Great Coffee, Good Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

I love hanging out at Java. It is always a pleasure to visit Java at the Junction when in Nairobi. The staff are pleasant, the restaurant is clean and the food is great. Give it a try!

“On urban oasis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

Our team frequented this place while working at Waajiri house. A very nice, easy going atmosphere, very decent food (salad, soup, sandwiches, wraps, quesadilla, fajita, etc.) and drinks. Try the hot ginger and lemon drink -- yum!

“Tasty food and nice atmosphere at reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

I love Java House, whether it is to have coffee, breakfast or lunch (maybe I've had dinner there, too). They have a great menu and everything I've tried (except for the b-fast bagel) is good. It's one of the places in Nairobi that I visit the most (including at the airport, where they clearly need to expand!). Their coffee is very good, too.
