I lived in Nanyuki for 3 months and Dorman's was my escape to enjoy a lovely cappuccino in good company. The prices are comparable to coffeeshops in Montreal ($2-$4) which is higher than other local spots but reasonable considering the quality. There is light fare...More

I love stopping here for coffee and a sandwich. As an American, it feels like a nice touch of home with more "Mzungu" food on offer. The coffee is great and I love their sandwiches!

It's always great to find a good coffee joint outside Nairobi. It's a quaint cafe with freshly brewed coffee and delicious pastries. The service is good and staff very accommodating of families with young children.

I love a Dorman's, it's like Kenya's Starbucks...but much better quality coffee. It's located just off the main street in Nanyuki, it's small but pleasant. The milkshakes are top notch to.

You can drink a great coffee at Dormans. Very friendly service from a lady. Did not eat anything so can't say much about the food.

Dormans is a great coffee shop which caters to western tastes. Sandwiches, cakes, cookies, cinnamon rolls and good coffee. Price-wise it's on par with Nairobi prices - more than fair. I'd go back.
