“Brilliant food, young, hip ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

A really fun place to go to. The decor is very modern, spacious, clean, but cosy, and inviting.

We visited the westgate mall location, which also had a lovely terrace, with umbrellas and plants and hedge bordering the terrace, so it was very pleasant to sit out (a bit of a green oasis ; not looking directly onto a road)

Our party had salads which were HUGE, and one had a burger. Everyone was impressed with portion size and quality and agreed that it was good value for money (in western terms, Nairobi is not a chea city to visit)

“One of those "have to go there" whenever we are in Nairobi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Our work takes us to Kenya every so often and Artcaffe is always on the short list of where we want to eat. We love to eat brunch. We get the eggs benedict plate that is served on a divided plate. One section has avocado, tuna salad, nice fruit. The coffee and teas are very good, but hey, you are in Kenya...it should be good. The wait staff is always willing to meet any special needs. It is always crowded, but we seem to get a seat quickly. Can't wait to get back to Kenya and to the Artcaffe!
