“All time is good time to be at Java”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012

Java breakfasts are the best, a must stop before going to work and carry your coffee along :). The best coffee in the whole of Nairobi, Good food and the best place to if you are not doing anything.

“Good eating on Upper Hill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

This is just a review of the branch on Upper Hill, not the other branches which I have not visited.

Very good menu, including vegetarian items, reasonable prices. Crowded midday during the week (there are few options on Upper Hill), absolutely empty Sunday morning.
