As always, the coffee at Java is excellent - unmatched by any other. The service had gone down last year but now it's fully back to the top. I especially love the 'Java kids art club' which keeps my young one very busy and entertained...More

Ever since i have moved to kenya, i heard a lot about this chain and its supposed to me the best coffee place, but it was a poor show! I will never want to visit this place again. Having heard a lot about kava house,...More

Coffee was OK, nothing special. The food was adequate. Nothing to get excited about. Locals seem to like it though. I'm feeling good spirited today so I didn't give them 2 stars.

This is a great place to go have a good cup of coffee! They have a comfortable environment if you want to sit and have a nice break with your friends. I loved their coffee!

We ate at Java 3x. The food was really nice, especially the chicken quesadilla! We also tried a samosa and freshly squeezed mint juice was fantastic! The place looked also pleasant and staff was friendly. We will definitely try again once in Kenya.

Hi. Their head office is on Waiyaki Way at ABC Place. You can go there or call them on +254(20)3504468 and find out. All the best.

You probably hit Java house at a bad time. While I agree about the bland, it has always been like that, since the original Java House opened.
