Other than the racist allegations being slapped on this place every now & then, everything else seems to be just perfect. The ambiance, the food, the Coffee, the drinks and most important, the cakes (not to forget the Croissant :P). Conveniently located across almost all the top malls in Nairobi, Artcaffe is arguably one of the best places to relax... More

Had some french wine which was served nicely chilled and tasted good. I ordered the Tagliatelle with prawns which was very tasty. the staff is very firendly and effiecient, maybe a bit too efficient in emptying the bottle of wine into the glasses. Overal a big plus and will for sure eat there again

Had dinner here with friends. Sat outside on a warm night and it was great (although a tad busy). The pizza's were the best, with dessert coming in at a close second.

This is my favorite place for early breakfast till late lunch in Nairobi, both solo and with others. Good place to meet other people, both business and leisure, as well. Quality is consistent across their branches and across time. I like the pizzas, the Egg Benedict, the schnitzels, the sandwiches, the fresh mango juice, etc. Espresso is mostly of good... More

with free wifi, its a good place to stop off for a breakfast while catching up with the rest of the world. The breakfasts are great value and the pumpkin pizza is great. The staff generally leave you be, and the coffee is good. A bit on the pricey side, but you get to see the world go by on... More

Consistently good food and service in Nairobi. The pizzas are great and the cocktails are well made. A popular spot with the expat and local crowd alike. Service has always been attentive and prompt. It is our go-to spot for pizza and margaritas.

After reading about this restaurant review on facebook I remembered an issue i had with my wife at the Art caffe in Junction. We were meeting a friend for dinner at a nearby suburb, but we got early to beat the Ngong Road jam so we decided to go to Art Caffe Junction for some light drinks before proceeding to... More
