I loved the coffee, so much I brought home bags full. It is the best in Kenya, but you must try the cashew shake it was amazing! This a must stop in Kenya.

The atmosphere is very conducive with a nice ambience. The waiters are helpful and knowledgeable. The meals are so good and done to your specific order. They have fresh fruit juices are out of this world, as i tried the fresh orange juice. Keep up the standards

Their grilled chicken is to die for. And their coffee and cakes just what a girl needs to relax. Always a pleasure being here.

Java House is a familiar restaurant when in Nairobi. It has pretty good food and the staff are very friendly, but service is slow. This was my experience at the last two I visited this month. If you are in a hurry, find some place else to eat.

Well Java being the old coffee house in nairobi always draws you in when you are up and about the city. Great coffee although it serves food and other drinks.

This place was so good when I was travelling in Kenya 2013 and 2014. Great service, they gave me free food when they gave me something I didn't order. Good fresh food, it doesn't take long until you get it. Excellent juice, good coffee. I really liked to go here for a moment of relaxation. Enjoy this place with friends... More

For healthy eaters order some chicken strips salad, and the ginger lemon drink called 'dawa' meaning medicine... It comes with some honey... However, when i want to spoil myself i never get tired of their java special chicken curry, their all flavour ice cream with two gigantic cookies.... Or the fruit salad with youghurt, honey and nuts on top.... Ooh... More

Our driver Thomas, from Natural World Kenyan Safaris introduced us to Java Coffee during our safari. Java Coffee is the BEST coffee I have ever had! I brought numerous bags of coffee home from Kenya for friends and family and they agreed that it was THE best coffee.
