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.

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...
