Love the alfresco sitting which is quite airy and great for quiet conversation. Service is pretty fast and attentive. Heady coffee aroma that is the signature of the franchise always welcomes one back with feelings of deja vu.

One of the best restaurants in town has got to be the Java house. Easily now accessible in most major shopping malls and at the CBD. One thing that standa out for me they are baby friendly. They got coloring games that keep the young ones engaged and an exciting kiddy menu. Great ambience for all occassions.

Am a regular at java..Though nowadays I tend to notice the little things ...like I have to pay for my salad or fries if I have a burger or sandwich...the staff is leaner and looks more harassed .prices are still going up wish the service got better as well. I send back food to the kitchen more often. Roys pudding... More

There are lots of Java House in Nairobi. The one I like most is in Junction Mall. The coffee is extremely good, even better than Artcafe in my opinon. The pepper steak is also nice to be tasted.

I love Java. I'm almost embarrassed to admit it. Its many outlets strive to maintain excellent service throughout, their menus are varied and tasty and they have great light offerings for lunch. Their wraps are without parallel throughout Nairobi and their coffee is just a cut above the rest (although it could be a bit cheaper). My favourite easy and... More
