Dorman's is a no frills cafe at the Junction & The Village Market. Coffee is great but I recently discovered their waffles. I don't have a sweet tooth so I immediately gravitated towards the savoury options, with some misgivings. I chose the Zucchini & Herb. Absolutely yummy. Portion was generous (I only managed half!) with a lovely simple side salad.... More

We visited it for afternoon snacks and coffee. The service was prompt and offered suggestions on what we should eat. We thoroughly enjoyed the coffee and muffins. It was really busy with many expats. Its clearly a good coffee house you should visit. Keep it up

There are many coffee houses at Junction but I still like this place. It's very personal, whether it's takeaway or seated. If you have had enough of shopping then this is a great place to stop and breathe. They have great coffee, sandwiches and cookies. Did I mention the smoothies? The best part for parents is that it is super... More

Tired of getting ripped off by companies looking to pad their bottom line at the expense of the consumer. Got a milkshake in a take away cup and it was 2/3 full. Seriously??? Only reason I gave them 2 stars was because the milkshake was good...but what a rip off. Other places that give you the same quality and more... More

Dormans prides itself in being one of the oldest coffee exporters in Kenya. One of their catch lines is since 1950. They're based in several locations and recently sold most of their retail outlets to the Art cafe chain. But, that meant that their chain became more exclusive, and has a very neo hipster look and feel to it nowadays.... More
