This is a good place to stop for a rest on the Masaka road. The coffee is good and the toilets are clean. Visitors to Uganda will know how rare this is to find at the roadside.More

Mainly stopped for the equator experience, but being hungry had a burger and fries. Very tasty and not too expensive. Also good to buy a few gifts.
