I've visited various Java outlets over the years and have to acknowledge that the quality of their food has not changed but their level of service has gone down.

Java is my favorite coffee shop. The beauty of these coffee shops are located almost everywhere in nairobi including the airport. They are clean and waiters are friendly too. I visit them on several occasions either for breakfast, lunch, coffee after work or dinner.
