The milk shake is awesome, I've tried different flavours and they're great! I think it's the best so far compared to other restaurants in town!

Java has many branches in Nairobi. I've tried it at the Junction mall. It has a nice shaded outdoor seating area. The staff is friendly, food is fresh (pastries and salads), and the prices are reasonable. I would definitely revisit.

Great place in town you would love to stop by when in Nairobi. Please ensure you visit on of the Java restaurants in Kenya Nairobi and Mombasa. This is an excellent place for family and friends.

Have you ever been hyped about a great business venture and then slowly watch it go down the drain right before your eyes? Welcome to Java. My office had relocated. Java was it. Internet, endless mugs of any of my fav coffees, hot off the oven croissants, and oh my fav burritos. Who wants to go home! A steward that... More

I love the deco and they've got reliable wifi. On the menu they've got decent coffee, I love their frappes, Turkey cheese and avocado wraps, chocolate fudge cake, and croissants, however I'm not comfortable with the fact their juice doesn't taste like fresh blended juice (i know this because I've seen the TRM branch pouring juice from th cartons to...

The coffee is good, the cake is fantastic and the staff is polite and nice. But, and there is a big BUT, the place it self has a very bad acoustic. So if you want to have a nice chat with friends or if you want to read or work - this is not the right place.

Getting a good cup if coffee is becoming harder and harder. The coffee is made to any intensity you desire. Also the staff is wonderful.

I wrote a review just recently stating how disappointed we were in regards to your cream cheese, but, after you contacted me and ensured me that Philadelphia was back, i hastened to your Gigiri branch as there is nothing more i love than your toasted bagels with cream cheese and a double Cappuccino.

Good wifi in some branches. Food is generally good and service is good. Furniture and ambience is good . Toilets at Uniafric branch are not at the standard of the restaurant.
