“Best coffee in Kampala”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

After living in regional Uganda for nearly a year, I almost passed out with the delight of a truly good coffee at Cafe Kawa. The food is great too - do yourself a favour & order the blue cheese salad. Friendly service & good value for money. Highly recommended.

“Excellent coffee, location not very charming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

I had a great cup of coffee here, nice and strong, properly made. The decor is rustic and pleasant. The waitresses were attentive and friendly. The location is convenient for meetings or breaks in the Tank Hill/Muyenga area, though the cafe is inside a walled car park area and in spite of decent efforts to screen off the outdoor seating area with pot plants, it's not exactly charming. There was litter on the ground.
