Artcaffe Gigiri

art-cafeArtcaffe is a trendy, European-style cafe and bakery found within the Village Market Shopping Centre near the UN Headquarters and American Embassy.

It has a stylish interior, and since opening, has become one of Nairobi’s most popular places to see and be seen in. The black and brown leather settees, open plan saloon, the spacious open-air terrace help to create an atmosphere which is relaxed and yet sophisticated. Artcaffe is perfect for meeting friends, or simply hanging out and making use of the free wireless internet available. There is a collection of books and magazines which customers may use, making Artcaffe a very comfortable place to be.

Artcaffe has a good selection of freshly baked bread, pastries and cakes. The aroma of freshly roasted coffee and pizza from the restaurant’s brick oven make this an appetising place to spend time in. If coffee’s not to your taste, Kenyan tea, iced drinks, smoothies or milkshakes are also available on the menu.
Artcaffe offers a variety of sandwiches using their homemade bread, or for a more substantial meal, burgers, salads, Italian style pizza, chicken, fish and steak options are all worth a try. All the pastries and other dishes are prepared on the premises in the semi open kitchen.

Some Artcaffe branches hold talks and presentations (usually in the mornings).
