Well it was very obvious that salad has not been washed since harvesting. On positive side this was only place in Kenya where i got freshly squeezed orange juice... More

I have been to Kaldis severally, mostly with friends. The place is always full so I found it to get a bit loud and if you go during lunch hours you would find it hard to find a table. Other than that, the food is superb, service is a bit wanting at times but the food keeps me going back.... More

I love eating out here. Their mint lemonade is worth it, so is their black coffee.. Their Wi-Fi connection is excellent and they have very friendly staff an example a Lad called Lucky. Their food is good though a smaller portion for me while their Fudge cake is mwah.. Recommended for visit by everyone

Went for brunch last weekend and they did not disappoint. Had been there before for lunch and loved it. We ordered crepes and an omelette... Yummy! The fresh squeezed orange juice was refreshing too. Great and friendly staff.

Kaldis is a nice coffee house, with a tasteful brown decor and very good food. I usually take the potato wedges with a side salad or chicken wrap. The food is delicious and the prices are fair, not much different from other coffee houses, though slightly lower. The staff are always courteous and fast. I twice accidenatly spilled my coffee,...

The one thing that keeps driving me back to Kaldis coffee shop is the excellent service! It must be the only restaurant in Nairobi's city center with 5 star service which is quite impressive. My afternoon meeting last week on Thursday went excellently well with the warm waiters gracing our table efficiently and always with a smile! My colleague and... More
