If you are sick & tired of the hustle & bustle, and just want to sit somewhere, have a good cup of coffee and utilize wi-fi, this is a wonderful place to go.

There have been many times we were subject to a rolling blackout for days & the only way to charge the phones were to go to a Java House & plug in while having a drink or a surprisingly wide selection of food.

They are easy& safe meeting places. I recommend the hot ginger & lemon w/honey.

* Hint- if there are no available plugs, it is common to share a table with people you don't know. Just ask & you will probably be invited to sit on the other side of the booth.
* Hint #2- It's well-known that people are there for the wireless. Leave good tips and the servers don't mind at all when you stay for an hour or two. And be sure to have a good firewall- people actively try to hack!

Nice environment and excellent coffee, to me the best in Kenya, pastry and service are also good.
You can now get the same in Mombasa, also good, do not miss it.

I had a doctor's appointment on a saturday in the same building housing Java Upper Hill Medical and as I waited for my friend decided to have some brunch! The service was not up to par as it took the intervention of the duty manager/supervisor to get service but the omelette/home fries & toast were yummy when I was finally served! I find the taste of their tea keeping changing though, not the best I've tasted! They have wonderful minty pineade juice great in this hot weather.

A broad and tasty menu, if a little expensive. Service is generally very good too. Lots of outlets across Nairobi, they all seem to be the same high standard.

Went to Java house at ABC centre for lunch yesterday and was disappointed. As always it is very busy, but we had to ask a number of times for our drinks / ice. I had Masala Chips which were cold and the sandwich wasn't great.

Used to go here alot for lunch, but maybe they have become too busy.
