“For all your coffee needs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

There are a number of them to be found in Nairobi. Great coffee, all the international options available. Excellent coffee, but be warned: you will be paying European prices!

“Fast Food lovers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

Java has excellent coffee and if one is a fast food lover, this is the place to go. The service is always slow here and there is room for improvement.

“Nice place to chat over a coffee or two! :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2014 via mobile

I was visiting my brother for a while who was working near Nairobi and we went in Java a few times. Its a bit of a ex-pat hang out and I found myself wanting to go somewhere a bit more local...
I guess it is a bit like going to starbucks or any of the other chain coffee places in the UK.
But it was a great atmosphere and there are a couple in Nairobi I think.

“Great Coffee, Good Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014

I love hanging out at Java. It is always a pleasure to visit Java at the Junction when in Nairobi. The staff are pleasant, the restaurant is clean and the food is great. Give it a try!

“On urban oasis”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2014

Our team frequented this place while working at Waajiri house. A very nice, easy going atmosphere, very decent food (salad, soup, sandwiches, wraps, quesadilla, fajita, etc.) and drinks. Try the hot ginger and lemon drink -- yum!
