This place was interesting. It had an internet cafe, a library and crafts for sale. The food was ok but they did make a mistake with our order.

Get the fried meat pies! They are cheap and yummy. Also make sure you get a hot cup of coffee. This is the closest thing to Starbucks in Jinja!!!

Good seating outside, diverse menu, efficient staff, a place where locals and visitors both visit. We had fried fish (tilapia) and a tilapia and avocado wrap (in a chapati), both very nice and great value. Would definitely visit again as a stop off while in town.

Best coffee in town. Passionjuice is really good also. Food is below average but it is a very pleasant place to sit and chill out.
