“Good food and drinks, slow service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

This is a cool chain that feels local but has international conveniences. It's a good landmark for downtown too because everyone knows where it is. Great menu; I had the vegetarian quiche one day and the almond croissant another. The Minty Pineapple juice was very nice too. Service is slow and you may have trouble getting a table at peak times. I say budget at least an hour for a lunch.

“monopoly at the airport, great in general”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

with Wi-Fi, many drinks options (iced coffee's teas, etc. the only complaint I have is snack & Food-On-The-Go selection.
although it's still decent, it's not the best I've had in kenya.

“Hot Lemon and Ginger!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Java is a great local spot for breakfast or lunch. Food is pretty tasty and service good. The hot lemon and ginger drink is AMAZING! My husband is addicted. I love the fact there is one at the airport - makes waiting there bearable!
