“Similar in concept to Java House but not quite as good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2012

These guys sell really good coffee. Nice selection of different ways to have it. They are not bad, but not quite as good as Java House simply due to the fact that Java has a much better menu.
Avoid for food and get a take-away.
Coffee quality is better than most international chain coffee houses.

“Relaxed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2012

Been here very many times, good free wi-fi, service is also good. They are found in quite a number of places around Nairobi, so accessible. Good coffee and hot sandwiches.

“Excellent service, Great chai latte(tea)!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

One thing that draws me to a restaurant or hotel is the service.. Dormans sure has the best! Being a great fan of chai latte(some kind of spiced tea) and carrot cake, i have never felt more at home in a restaurant... Exceptional service and meals, totally worth a 2nd,3rd and more visits!

“A Great Coffee Shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2012

There are a number of these around Nairobi and we visited only two mainly for coffee and the both were very good. Since Dormans is one of the main coffee brands in Kenya one could expect their coffee to be good.

On one occasion one of my sons had a blue cheese burger and chips and the quality was very good and well flavoured. There carrot cake is excellent as is their apple and rubbard muffins.
