Artcaffe takes time to play around with their recipes and make them better over time. Which results in great meals. My favorite are the farmers soup, tiramisu, apple pie and mango and oat yogurt! Promote service enjoyed. I keep coming back.

I was at art-cafe in galleria mall Karen and realized black customers are treated much poorly than white customers. Was dining with a friend (both of us black) we were completely ignored when we walked in yet a white family than entered immediately after us were served.

Had brunch just a few days before the siege 2nd year memorial with my wife... Still yet to fully reopen but it's good to see most business back up and running.

This review covers the Art Café’s I have visited in Nairobi. Nice interior, friendly staffs, good food and free wifi.

Several visits. Very well trained helpful staff. Great internet access whilst drinking the best coffee in Kenya, in fabulously modern trendy setting. Very strange breakfast for an ex-pat: large glass dish comprising beautiful egg of your choice, served with blobs of gauchemole, cream cheese, and olives, together with toast. Snack and lunch menu extensive and delicious. Great meeting place.

Loved the atmosphere brought by the decor. The food is also really good but a bit on the pricey side. Good place to have a business meeting or coffee with friends.

I've been seeing this poster advertising "gourmet burgers" so I decided to give it a try. Vegan burger is delicious, staff was very kind and the place looks cool.
