It's always great to find a good coffee joint outside Nairobi. It's a quaint cafe with freshly brewed coffee and delicious pastries. The service is good and staff very accommodating of families with young children.

I love a Dorman's, it's like Kenya's Starbucks...but much better quality coffee. It's located just off the main street in Nanyuki, it's small but pleasant. The milkshakes are top notch to.

You can drink a great coffee at Dormans. Very friendly service from a lady. Did not eat anything so can't say much about the food.

Dormans is a great coffee shop which caters to western tastes. Sandwiches, cakes, cookies, cinnamon rolls and good coffee. Price-wise it's on par with Nairobi prices - more than fair. I'd go back.

I’ve been coming here every year for the past six years and have found it to be the same each visit. Wonderful fresh pastries and delicious coffee with generous portions. There are home-made jams and honey for sale as well as vegetables from local gardens....More

Located just on the main road with good outdoor sitting space. Was on my way to Meru when i saw it and dropped in for a coffee and a pastry. The staff are quite polite and as usual Dorman standard say it all

I have severally stopped by for that coffee kick in Nanyuki, often enroute to Isiolo, Marsabit or back to Nairobi. The coffee is good but there could be improvements in other areas like service and ambience including bathroom facilities.
