Source Cafe is a nice western style establishment run by Ugandan Christians. A Internet cafe, lending library, and upscale gift shop are also on site.

“A Good Muzungu Hangout”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

A great place to grab an iced coffee and just relax. The food is good and the staff is very friendly. Try the peanut butter cookies :-) Yum!

“Clean, good service, nice place to stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

We stopped there on our way traveling between Mbale and Entebbe for lunch and shopping. It's a westernized establishment with free Wi-Fi, clean bathrooms and friendly people. The food was Mixed reviews. My hamburger was made on homemade bread with the bread buttered and toasted. It was really good. My wife had the chicken and it was on the tough side. But you felt free to sit at the table and use the Internet while having something to drink. I would recommend stopping here if you ever find yourself in Jinja, Uganda. The shopping all around the restaurant was really good as well. It beats any of the prices we are finding in Kenya. The shop keepers will bargain, so don't pay asking price.

“Lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Lovely setting, friendly service, good coffee and decent food. Pretty much all you could ask for in a cafe. And, outside of Kampala, one of the very few places in Uganda where you can sit down, relax, use the internet and while away the hours.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

We had heard good things on Trip Advisor but found the food here to be lackluster, the menu to be small and the atmosphere to be so so. We were definitely disappointed and instead enjoyed meals at Flavours.
