In June 2008 our journey started with when Artcaffe opened its doors at Westgate Mall. With that flagship location we sought to bring a first truly European model of coffee and bakery to Nairobi. Through delicious signature dishes, cocktails and events, we have evolved into the definitive Kenyan dining experience.


More than a restaurant, Artcaffe is a lifestyle and a social hub in the buzzing capital of Kenya. We are firm believers that dining is about so much more than food. We feed the Kenyan story. The bread has nourished us and the wine enlightened us. The brand has become synonymous with unique design, use of space and environment that’s created THE Artcaffe experience.
