I read the recent reviews of this restaurant and I really do not understand. This is a simple cafe. Clearly a favorite of the foreign community in Nairobi. It is just a regular cafe the likes of which you can find anywhere in the world. Maybe the reviewers compared it to other cafe's in Nairobi. The coffee in Kenya is... More

The Artcaffes in Nairobi offer great breakfast items. We were never disappointed. We particularly like the one in Village Market and eating on the 2nd floor balcony. The smoothies are also very nice.

Two years ago, when I ordered a foccacia for somewhere around 200 KES, I got a full piece of nicely baked bread topped with olive oil and rosemary and two small sides (roasted garlic and a pepper sauce). Today, I ordered an iced tea and a focaccia with "tomato salsa" and... More

I agree with a previous review (moha): the food is just average and expensive, the style is ok, but you must like this international coffee house concept.... however, the coffee itself is still very good, as well are the rye bread and some of the cakes (chocolate cream e.g.) and you may meet a lot of diverse people there........ the...

Artcafé is always a good choice if you want a straight forward US style cafe (pizza/pasta/burgers). I usually go the Muthiaga Mall or Oval branch and take a burger or an egg based brunch. Food is good, well presented and staff is attentive. Together with Java Coffee thye ar my favorites when I am around town and need a quick... More
