Java has great coffee (and soy milk!) for decent prices as well as a wide selection of foods. It promises free wifi, but it is so slow that it's unusable. There are some power outlets though, so you can at least charge your equipment.

Great place for a quick lunch meeting. Can get very busy after 1 p.m. And they accept Sodexo Meal passes!

Java House is located in the Upper part of the city its less noisy. One can even hold a Meeting there. The place has got very good food from African dishes to International dishes. The Coffee served is freshly made, plenty of assorted juices. The staff are very friendly,honest and smartly dressed.

Service was very good and I enjoyed the freshness and tastiness of the cakes. The washrooms are clean but more washrooms needed to avoid lineups

I am a huge fan of Java House in all their locations primarily for their coffee and amazing (most times) black forest cake. I am not crazy about their food, I think it's okay though. I did love their salads but then my love for their salads was soured, unfortunately, by the rumors of snails and worms in their salads.... More

My favourite coffee spot. Tried the hotel breakfast once, and then started walking here for my morning coffee and something to eat. Coffee is great! And so too the hot ginger, lemon and honey drink they offer. Life saver!

One of my favorite places. This is one of the few Javas in CBD that is not dense and crowded, so having a meal here is extra enjoyable. They have the standard Java quality and affordable prices, which I've always been satisfied with. I especially like their chicken dishes.
