Awesome Places For A Quick Breakfast In Nairobi

written by Yummy Team 9th October 2019

Breakfast is the first meal taken in the morning after a night’s sleep before we go about our daily businesses and also referred to as the most important meal of the day. It helps provide the body and brain with energy after an overnight fast and this is said to be the origin of the name – breaking the fast!

The foods we eat for breakfast are good sources of important nutrients such as iron, calcium, B vitamins, protein, fibre and other essential nutrients that the body needs. That said, a lazy and well thought of breakfast sounds good any day. Here is a few places you should check out to enjoy this.


artcaffe hub

There is an Artcaffe almost in every corner of Nairobi and their breakfast is not only healthy but delicious and pleasing to the eyes. Perfect location for that lazy breakfast whether alone or with friends.

Location: All locations

Operating hours: 7.30AM – 12 Midnight



Brioche serves a continental breakfast that includes a surprising fusion of Africa meets Europe. For under Kshs. 1,000 you can spoil yourself with pancakes and French toast or keep it healthy with granola or a fruit bowl. The choice is yours!

Location: The Alchemist, Westlands

Operating hours: 7AM – 11PM

The Chatroom

Our team recently tried the new English breakfast served at this small restaurant in Kilimani and we loved it! You won’t have to worry about snacking before lunch, once you’ve had a full plate of pancakes, French toast, bacon, baked beans, egg and mushrooms.

Location: Wood Avenue, Kilimani

Operating hours: 8AM – 11PM

Charlie’s Bistro

This premium eatery is more than a happy hour spot. Pop into their CBD or Kileleshwa branch and grab a muffin and some coffee on your way to the office. Better yet, have your meeting in the restaurant so that you can enjoy a Full Charlie’s Breakfast.

Locations: CBD, Kileleshwa

Operating hours: 6AM – 10PM

CJs Restaurant

CJs has popped up in multiple locations around Nairobi so there is no excuse not to try their extensive breakfast menu including their savoury breakfast combos. If you’re in a hurry though, just order one of their filling croissants to go and make everyone in your office hungry as you devour it!

Locations: CBD, Karen, Gigiri

Operating hours: 6AM – 10PM

Connect Coffee

This is the perfect place to grab a breakfast snack especially if you’re craving something sweet. If you don’t have the time to sit and enjoy one of their sanwiches then you can find something in their pastry section. We suggest passing by early though so that you can get your favourite pastry before they are all gone!

Location: Chiromo Gardens, Riverside         Operating hours: 8AM – 7PM

Java House

Java has spread out across Nairobi and made sure that they are as close to you as possible so whether you’re fuelling your car or walking by, pop into your nearest outlet and grab a coffee and giant samosa. If you’re lucky to have an express outlet close by then we recommend trying out their mini croissants!

Locations: All locations                 Operating hours: 6.30AM – 9PM

Mugg & Bean

The breakfast at their outlets is the best way to start your day. Try their power breakfast bowls, freshly baked butter croissants or their classic breakfast combos. You might just end up staying for lunch!

Locations: Sarit Centre & Village Market

Operating hours: 7AM – 9PM

Talisman Restaurant

Enjoy a delightful fusion of European, Pan-Asian and African breakfast at the Talisman located in Karen before starting your day. Start your day with fresh salmon tucked into a warm bagel with lettuce, avocado, cucumber dill and honey mustard.

Location: Ngong Road, Karen

Operating hours: 8AM – 10PM

Tiramisu Bakery

Tiramisu brings the Italian taste of fine tarts and desserts, pastries and bread that is baked fresh daily, complimented by freshly brewed Kenyan coffee or their special hot chocolate with whipped cream. Their English breakfast offer is at sh.500 every day from 7:30-11:0a.m!

Location: ABC Place & Village Market

Operating hours: 6.30AM – 8PM

Urban Eatery

This four kitchen eatery is good for more than lunch and dinner. Their breakfast menu has been dependable since their inception and the quality has not changed. Avoid morning traffic by settling in to enjoy their extensive breakfast options that include porridge served with roasted sweet potato and Kings Breakfast.
