Great for coffee and a snack. A little inconsistent.

I have been to all three of Kigali's Bourbon establishments, all of which are inconsistent. In general, the service is excellent and the food hits the spot. Every now and again the food can take over an hour to be served and once of twice it was overcooked. Considering the amount of times I visited... read more

There are some Bourbon Coffee in Kigali, but the best one for us is that one situated at the small Nakumat, that is closer to the big round and somehow the coffee is better there. After a dinner at a restaurant, or a night walk we use to go there for a capuccino. The atmosphere is great, the personnel is... More

I always visit when in Kigali as I have business in UTC. The shakes juices sandwiches are always fresh and plentiful. Nice lunches or just a coffee then this is the place.

There are several branches attached to Nakumatt supermarkets, and are the exact equivalent of Java Coffee Houses in Nairobi.

It is the only place where you can buy snacks and beverages at the airport. The selection is small but ok and the coffee is nothing fancy but my girl liked it. Thanks to them we survived our 5 hours for the connecting flight.

For I did not expect such good coffee in kigali,but I did not know Rwanda is famous for coffee. The grilled vegetable sandwich was tasty and made well. I. Short an excellent place for... More

The coffee is good here and the price for it is pretty standard for Kigali. The food is fine, but nothing exciting. The pastries are often stale. Wifi is available most of the time. The staff is polite, but not friendly and so painfully slow in the mornings that it is maddening.

It's a great local cafe, nice atmosphere, very relaxing. The coffee is strong and smooth. Lots of people hanging out working on laptops and reading, wifi. I didn't try the food but looks like standard bakery options and wraps.

Probably the best coffee you will find in Kigali. Located next to one of the largest and busiest shopping mall, this has become a place you don't wanna miss while in Kigali. I love it.

Coffee is great here.. Try the African coffee or the African Tea. It is one of the few places you can get a coffee to go. Food is good too. I like the Africana Salad with strips of beef and chicken. Friendly atmosphere. There are three locations in Kigali city plus one at the airport. I prefer the UTC location.
