“Great Coffee, Food, and Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Tasty, hearty menu options, great coffee, brightly-lit, modern restaurant. The staff is friendly and helpful when asked questions about the menu. Happy to feed us, although we came nearly at closing time. Ample parking. Enough menu choices to satisfy picky children.

“Ce'beautifull”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

I have had the pleasure sampling almost all the java's in Nairobi.I always enjoy my meal and the service is great.I like the consistency, you go to any of their many outlets and it's the same, good food, nice service, nice ambiance, the prices are fair. It is total value for your money. I would recommend it any day.

“A chain restaurant, and a pretty good one”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

With Java you know what you are going to get. Its a decent chain restaurant with various coffees, cakes and light meals (salads, burgers etc), in the bigger branches at least. Service can be hit and miss, but that's more or less everywhere in Nairobi. The chocolate fudge cake is veeery rich, and the banana bread not bad. Salads are good - the only minus was when we went the other day, they had run out of chips for the burgers (this was at the start of a busy Friday night) and offered salad as a side instead. OK, not a problem - but running out of chips? For a fast food outlet, kind of a no-no ;-)
