Good coffee

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.

The juices and the tea are also ok. And there are not many places where can sit relatively quiet on a terrace right in the city center.

If you fancy a quick coffee and can get onto the terrace then it could be worth a visit. Stay away from the food, there are much, much better places to eat in Kigali.

The coffee is acceptable though my cappuccinos always had too much milk. However AVOID the cakes. They have been sitting in the display for several days. The cakes are dry and the cream usually dried up and crumbling. The croissant was a tasteless hard brick. More biscuit than croissant. Try Brioche nearby, at the opposite end of the roundabout. However,... More

They have wifi and are situated next door to the supermarket in UTC. Coffee is good but otherwise a decidedly average experience. Similar to Starbucks really.

Our last stop in Kigali was to grab a late lunch before heading to the airport. I had a vegetable wrap with a huge portion of French fries. My boyfriend had a burger with fries; he thought there was too much seasoning on the burger (he likes them plain). We had ice cream for desert. Prices were reasonable. Wifi was... More

I've been here a couple of times now and their coffee is the best I've tried in Rwanda. It's first class. .The cakes are also tasty but the service can be very slow. On a number of occasions I have had to chase up my cake for example. The one thing that really lets the place down is the food.... More

We have been to Bourbon Coffee many times to meet people. Have never had a really good meal. The specialty drinks are good but the food is subpar.

Not much to add beyond the title: the menu is uninspired offering sandwiches and smaller plates. The preparation is haphazard and the ingredients obviously chosen to cut costs: my sandwich was made on a dry white roll with no dressing, wilted vegetables, and tasteless cheese. The chips were frozen and then barely heated through. The coffee drinks, on the other... More
