Java House in Kileleshwa was flattened this morning by the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) in a bid to reclaim riparian land.
A Shell petrol station was also closed in the unexpected exercise.
The authority says it gave the owners a three-month notice and extended it by a week but the same was ignored.
In a tweet, the coffee house said that they will be closed until further notice, without giving details.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, our Java Kileleshwa branch will remain closed until further notice. You can still enjoy your daily Java at neighboring branches on Lenana Road and Hurlingham.
