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

We were in Rwanda for two weeks and stopped at a few Bourbon Coffee shops. The coffee was always good (and strong), but the food was hit or miss. We ordered a very dry piece of chocolate cake once that was almost inedible and another pastry that wasn't exciting at all, but the beef burger we ordered was really good,... More

I have been to Bourbon coffee shop more than 5 times for the last one month I have been in Kigali. A very relaxing environment with excellently brewed coffee, my favorite is Americano, made like nowhere else in Kigali. My last visit I tried Café Macchiato and it was ballistic. Honestly, if you love coffee and you are in Kigali,... More

The coffee is exceptional though I can't say the same about the food. The pastry is always fresh and heavenly. The only negative is that they should have an opening onto the outside to enjoy the weather.

The coffee is good and the waiters are usually friendly and service- minded. However, the food is not good quality. Last time I ordered a chicken burger which I had to send back, as the chicken inside was not a patty, not a breast, or anything else recognizable as chicken meat. Completely inedible. So unfortunately, I will not eat there... More

We had a veg burger, mince meat croissant and milkshakes. The croissant and the white chocolate shake were really tasty, so much that we came back for more in a couple days.
