“Cheap with an expensive taste”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

If you are looking for authentic Ugandan coffee then this is the place to go. Not only is the coffee good but the food is great and very cheap as well. This is a place I recommend to everyone that comes to Jinja

“Better than Starbucks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

This is the typical meeting place every country seems to have for travellers. Its a meeting place, computer hub to contact home, exchange information about where to visit, and a spot to just hang out like an old African hand telling stories of your adventures to fellow travellers. A perfect spot to get the inside information about the area and meet new friends.

Lovely cafe positioned on the street next to some great shops for souvenirs. Just sit outside and watch the world go by!

“Nice Coffee Bar, good food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

This place has great gifts, coffee and food. Would recommend for lunch while in Jinja.

Clean and probably one of the safer places to eat in town.

“Nice relaxing place ..Internet could be faster though..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Very friendly and efficient place in Jinja town centre. Very clean and a good variety of food and drinks available.Not cheap but the good atmosphere makes up for that. The only gripe is the erratic and slow internet service which could be improved if they tried to.
